Delaney suffered the injury playing for Wales' in their Euro 2004 qualifying win over Azerbaijan in November.

Delaney said: "The foot is X-rayed on 16th December and hopefully the bone will have knitted together properly and the cast can be removed.

"After that it will be a case of two weeks of general fitness - so with that in mind I should have a chance of making the Bolton game."
