On-loan Klasnic could start for Bolton

On-loan striker Ivan Klasnic is set to be named in Bolton’s squad to face Portsmouth at Fratton Park tomorrow.

The Croatia international, who joined on transfer deadline day, trained with his new team-mates for the first time yesterday as he was immediately called away on international duty after signing.

However, with Wanderers having scored just two goals in their three league defeats so far the 29-year-old could provide much-needed firepower.

Fellow striker Johan Elmander picked up a slight strain playing for Sweden but is expected to be fit, midfielder Mark Davies has recovered from a knock sustained in the Carling Cup victory over Tranmere on August 25 but Gavin McCann is a doubt.

Midfielder Sean Davis serves a one-match suspension for his sending-off against Liverpool last time out.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Ricketts, Cahill, A O’Brien, Knight, Robinson, Samuel, Taylor, Muamba, Lee, Elmander, Basham, K Davies, Klasnic, Al Habsi, Hunt, Ward, Cohen, M Davies, Vaz Te.
