Chelsea target Gary Cahill will be among five or six players rested for Bolton’s FA Cup third-round trip to Macclesfield tomorrow.

Trotters boss Owen Coyle was keen to stress his decision was not linked to Cahill’s probable move to Stamford Bridge and was instead a reaction to the busy festive period.

Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, beaten by opposite number Tim Howard in the 2-1 win over Everton on Wednesday, will definitely keep his place with Jussi Jaaskelainen still sidelined by a thigh injury.

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