No news is good news on the injury front as Martin Jol prepares for Bolton on Monday night  Edgar Davids is also available again after suspension.

The Dutch midfielder had to sit out the Derby against Arsenal last weekend but will now come back into Head Coach Martin’s plans for the Reebok Stadium.

Otherwise, as Martin reported in his pre-Bolton media briefings on Thursday, it’s good news from the treatment room.

“We have good recoveries from our injured players but Mounir El Hamdaoui and Dean Marney will both be out for a couple of months, maybe more,†said Martin

Stephen Kelly had a little fracture in his nose but that will only be a couple of days

“Wayne Routledge needs maybe two or three weeks of conditioning and fitness but he’s doing well, Anthony Gardner is back in full training and needs probably another week to 10 days. Goran is still out with his broken toe and Noe Pamarot is fit now but needs another game and unfortunately our reserve game was postponed on Wednesday.â€Â

For the record, Wayne broke a bone in his foot in the opening day win at Portsmouth on August 13, Anthony ruptured his thigh muscle at Aston Villa on September 17 and Goran broke a bone in his toe in reserve action at Charlton on October 3.

Noe tore his knee ligament at Birmingham City on April 2, Dean picked up an Achilles injury on loan at Norwich on Saturday and Mounir suffered a dislocated shoulder in loan action for Derby County.
