The Swedish forward was ruled out of last week's victory over Portsmouth with a calf injury, but has returned to training and manager Gary Megson is hopeful that he will have made a full recovery in time for the match at The Reebok.

Sean Davis is a doubt with a sore knee and Andy O'Brien also faces a race against time after injuring his groin over-exerting himself in training.

Ricardo Gardner came through training sessions this week with no ill-effects to his hamstring injury and may be in contention, while Ricardo Vaz Te is also back after playing 45 minutes for the reserves.

Long-term absentee Joey O'Brien has suffered a further setback in his rehabilitation from his knee problems after a specialist recommended he have an operation that will rule him out for at least another four months.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Ricketts, Cahill, A O'Brien, Knight, Robinson, Samuel, Taylor, Muamba, Lee, Elmander, Basham, K Davies, Klasnic, Al Habsi, Hunt, Ward, Cohen, M Davies, Vaz Te.
