Bolton midfielder Mark Davies returns from suspension.

Davies has served a one-match ban following his dismissal in the victory over Blackburn a fortnight ago.

Owen Coyle is otherwise likely to have an unchanged squad with Joey O'Brien, Sean Davis, Ricardo Gardner and Jlloyd Samuel all still sidelined. Winger Lee Chung-yong could play his last game before joining up with South Korea for the Asia Cup in Qatar.

West Brom's leading scorer Peter Odemwingie is fit to return.

The Nigerian international missed the 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa two weeks ago with a calf injury which would have also ruled him out of the postponed clash with Wolves last weekend.

Head coach Roberto Di Matteo will continue to monitor the fitness of midfielder Chris Brunt whose training this week has been restricted because of an ongoing groin problem.

The postponement of the Wolves game has enabled midfielder Graham Dorrans (illness) and defender Paul Scharner (leg) to fully recover.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Bogdan, Cahill, Steinsson, Knight, Robinson, Lee, Holden, Muamba, Petrov, Cohen, K Davies, Elmander, Blake, Taylor, Klasnic, Ricketts, Alonso, Moreno, M Davies.

WBA (from): Carson, Myhill, Jara, Tamas, Scharner, Pablo, Cech, Shorey, Reid, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Brunt, Thomas, Morrison, Tchoyi, Barnes, Fortune, Cox, Miller, Odemwingie.
