Although first-choice shot-stopper Jussi Jaaskelainen (pictured) has undergone successful surgery on a serious injury to his anterior cruciate ligament, he will not appear for The Trotters again this season.
With Steve Banks suspended and the recall of fourth-choice keeper Matty Glennon from his loan spell at Carlisle not being an option, Allardyce may be forced to throw 19-year-old James Evans into the fray for his senior debut.
