Megson waiting on international returns

Bolton manager Gary Megson will wait until all his players are back from international duty before deciding on his team to face Blackburn at the Reebok Stadium tomorrow.

The Trotters boss was not expecting the last player to arrive back until today and could alter his starting line-up from the 3-1 win over West Ham two weeks ago.

Heidar Helguson and Gretar Steinsson both picked up knocks while on duty with Iceland but should be fit for the north-west derby in the Barclays Premier League.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Cahill, Shittu, A O’Brien, Samuel, Gardner, Muamba, Nolan, McCann, J O’Brien, Smolarek, Elmander, Davies, Helguson, Riga, Hunt, Vaz Te, Cohen, Fojut, Al Habsi.
