Bolton manager Owen Coyle is hoping Mark Davies is passed fit for his side’s Barclays Premier League clash at Aston Villa tomorrow night.

Davies took a knock in Saturday’s draw against Swansea, and with Darren Pratley battling illness, Nigel Reo-Coker is the only fully fit central midfielder in the relegation battlers’ senior squad.

Josh Vela, 18, made his debut from the bench in that game and could be involved again, but Lee Chung-yong is not yet recovered from a broken leg and FIFA clearance has yet to be received for former Rangers winger Gregg Wylde.

Provisional squad: Bogdan, Jaaskelainen, Alonso, Steinsson, Wheater, Boyata, Knight, Ream, Ricketts, Reo-Coker, M Davies, Klasnic, Miyaichi, Ngog, Petrov, Eagles, Tuncay, Sordell, Vela.
