After collecting his fifth booking of the season in the 3-1 win over West Ham last week, Muamba should have sat out Monday's game at Wigan, only for it to be postponed.

Chris Basham is likely to step in as the only change from the game with the Hammers as the midfielder Gavin McCann again misses out due to an ankle injury.

Kick-off 2pm.

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