Lonergan is beginning his recovery from cartilage surgery
Bolton have confirmed goalkeeper Andy Lonergan will spend five to six weeks recovering from surgery.
The stopper suffered damage to his cartilage during a training ground accident last week.
Caretaker boss Jimmy Phillips said: "Andy Lonergan unfortunately before the Bristol City game, in a very innocuous training incident, had a cartilage problem.
"He had that operated on in London so he's going to be out for, I think, five or six weeks."
Lonergan has failed to displace Adam Bogdan as Wanderers' first-choice stopper since signing from Leeds over the summer.
