Bolton defender Gary Cahill is poised to return from a two-month lay-off for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League clash with table-topping Manchester United at the Reebok Stadium.

Cahill has now fully recovered from a blood clot that forced him to undergo surgery to remove a section of a rib and played a full 90 minutes in the reserves on Monday.

Boss Owen Coyle is again without several players, including Gretar Steinsson through suspension following his dismissal in the 2-0 defeat at Everton last Saturday.

Five players in Stuart Holden, Chris Basham, Gavin McCann, Sean Davis and Joey O’Brien remain sidelined through injury.

Team (from): Jaaskelainen, Knight, Ricketts, Cahill, Robinson, Muamba, Lee, Gardner, M Davies, Taylor, Wilshere, Cohen, K Davies, Elmander, Klasnic, Weiss, Al Habsi, Samuel, A O’Brien, Riga.
