Fitness test for Fadiga

Bolton midfielder Khalilou Fadiga faces a battle to be fit for tomorrow’s Barclays Premiership clash with Wigan, after suffering a recurrence of his knee injury.

The Senegal star returned for the midweek draw at Portsmouth but was substituted with four minutes remaining and will undergo a late test.

Boss Sam Allardyce has no other new injury concerns – with Gary Speed (knee), Ivan Campo (foot) and Henrik Pedersen (Achilles) all still out alongside Bolton’s African Nations Cup contingent.

Team (from): Jaaskelainen, O’Brien, Hunt, N’Gotty, Ben Haim, Gardner, Giannakopoulos, Fadiga, Nakata, Nolan, Davies, Borgetti, Jansen, Vaz Te, Walker, Fojut.
