Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen is a major injury doubt for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League trip to Everton.

Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen is a major injury doubt for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League trip to Everton.

Jaaskelainen picked up a thigh problem in the 1-1 draw with Wolves on New Year’s Eve and will be replaced by Adam Bogdan in the starting line-up if he fails to recover in time.

Midfielder Darren Pratley missed the contest on Saturday due to illness but is available again, while manager Owen Coyle says defender Gary Cahill – who skippered the Trotters against Wolves despite a fee for him having been agreed with Chelsea – is “absolutely” a part of his plans for the clash at Goodison Park as things stand.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Wheater, Boyata, Cahill, Knight, Eagles, Robinson, Muamba, Petrov, K Davies, Klasnic, Tuncay, Bogdan, M Davies, Pratley, Ngog, Blake, Reo-Coker, Steinsson, Ricketts, Riley.
