Andre Moritz has become the latest forward to be sidelined after picking up a hamstring injury in midweek defeat to Burnley.

With Jermaine Beckford still on the treatment table, new signing Lukas Jutkiewicz looks set to lead the line on Saturday.

Freedman has come under much scrutiny after allowing Craig Davies to join League One side Preston North End on loan on transfer deadline day, and for not recalling Marvin Sordell or Tom Eaves to ease their shortage.

But the Trotters boss is adamant he has the personnel to succeed, and doesn't need to bring his loanees back just yet.

"We have got people in the team that are capable of scoring goals - like Liam Trotter and Mark Davies," Freedman told the Bolton News.

"Yes it's unfortunate Jermaine Beckford is injured but I don't think you can just pinpoint that (Craig Davies's loan) as being the thing to blame.

"The chances are coming and our approach play has been good but we just need to start getting back to clean sheets, we proved that last year, and then I know we can get the goals we need to win games of football."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
