Nigeria playmaker Jay-Jay Okocha is set to return to the Bolton squad tomorrow against Tottenham following a groin injury.

Okocha was ruled out of the victory against Crystal Palace last weekend after suffering a recurrence of the problem.

Former Spain and Real Madrid star Fernando Hierro looks likely to be included with Ivan Campo sidelined because of a facial injury.

Veteran striker Les Ferdinand may have to settle for a place on the bench against his former club.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Hunt, N’Gotty, Jaidi, Gardner, Hierro, Giannakopoulos, Speed, Okocha, Nolan, Davies, Diouf, Oakes, Barness, Pedersen, Ferdinand, Fadiga, Cesar.
