Davies ready to return

25 Sep 2006 - 09:47:34

Bolton Wanderers striker Kevin Davies is set to don a protective mask to allow him to return to action against Portsmouth on Monday.

The 29-year-old has not played since suffering a fractured cheekbone after being elbowed by Hermann Hreidarsson during Bolton's 2-0 loss at Charlton Athletic on August 26.

Davies was also sent off in the same game, but has now served his three-match suspension and Sam Allardyce believes he is ready to partner Nicolas Anelka at Fratton Park.

The Trotters boss said: "He has to get through the psychological barrier.

"The first ball that comes up and the first physical challenge around that cheekbone area will be the biggest test.

"While, physically, he is repaired, mentally it will be a challenge for him to overcome.

"We have had a mask done for him and he has been wearing it in training to see how he likes it."
