Bolton forward Kevin Davies has been ruled out of tomorrow’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at Millwall due to a knee injury.

Bolton forward Kevin Davies has been ruled out of tomorrow’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at Millwall due to a knee injury.

Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has revealed that Davies sustained medial ligament damage in last Saturday’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League loss to Wigan and will miss the game, along with defender Tyrone Mears, who is facing more time on the sidelines after suffering a setback in his recovery from a broken leg.

Striker Marvin Sordell is cup-tied, but Joe Riley may feature having regained his fitness after a groin problem and there could be first Bolton starts for two January signings in centre-back Tim Ream, who is still yet to make his debut, and on-loan winger Ryo Miyaichi, an impressive substitute in the second half of the Wigan match.

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