Bolton midfielder Mark Davies could make his return from injury in time for the trip to Sunderland tomorrow night in the Barclays Premier League.
Davies has been nursing an ankle problem which has kept him out of Wanderers’ last three matches.
Tamir Cohen is suspended after he was sent off against West Ham on Saturday and Gary Cahill is not expected back in full training for another week as he continues his recovery following the discovery of a blood clot in his arm.
Stuart Holden (fractured fibula), Gavin McCann (ankle), Chris Basham, Joey O'Brien and Sean Davis (all knee) are also still sidelined.
Team (from): Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Knight, Robinson, Gardner, Taylor, Muamba, Lee, K Davies, Klasnic, Riga, A O’Brien, Al Habsi, Samuel, Elmander, Ricketts, Weiss, Wilshere, Shittu.
