Salford City hope to have striker James Wilson and midfielder Oscar Threlkeld available for this evening’s crunch clash against Bolton Wanderers, with Gary Bowyer providing an update on the duo to Manchester Evening News.
The Ammies will be hoping that both players can play some part in what is a crucial game at the top of the League Two standings this evening as two of the division’s play-off chasers go head to head at the Peninsula Stadium.
Threlkeld came off at halftime in the weekend victory over Stevenage, whilst Wilson has missed the club’s last three games but could be in line for a return against the Trotters on home turf.
Speaking after the victory on Saturday, Bowyer was quick to provide the following update on the duo:
“We picked up a bit of a knock with Oscar at half-time coming off, so hopefully he can be back in and James Wilson trained yesterday a little bit, so hopefully he can be back and we get a few more bodies back, which would help the squad.”

The two players have played 53 games between them in the league for the ambitious Northern outfit and will be hoping to get back involved as soon as possible as the Ammies aim to close in on the top seven.
Both players will be welcome additions to the squad if they are indeed involved this evening and will be hoping to make an impact in what is one of the biggest games of Salford’s season so far.
Another win at home against one of their direct rivals for the play-offs and promotion would send out a clear message to the rest of the side’s competing ion the top half and show that the Ammies aren’t to be messed with.
Tonight’s game combined with the upcoming trip to Tranmere Rovers presents the opportunity to deal a psychological blow to those that are around them in the standings.
Bowyer will know that their play-off push could well take another step in the right direction with a win, whilst a defeat could see everything go up in smoke very quickly.
