Johnson faces fitness test

Liverpool will give full-back Glen Johnson a fitness test prior to Sunday’s Premier League trip to Bolton.

The England international has missed the last three games with a thigh injury but has an outside chance of featuring at the Reebok Stadium.

Dirk Kuyt is still sidelined with a knee problem but is making good progress and could be in contention to face Chelsea next week, although Daniel Agger is still missing with the calf injury which has kept him out for the past month.

Provisional squad: Reina, Johnson, Kelly, Skrtel, Kyrgiakos, Carragher, Aurelio, Konchesky, Gerrard, Lucas, Jovanovic, Cole, Rodriguez, Spearing, Poulsen, Meireles, Torres, Ngog, Eccleston, Shelvey, Jones.
