Bolton boss Owen Coyle will pick from the same squad of players that was available for last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Newcastle.

Jlloyd Samuel is closing in on a return following a six-month lay-off with a ruptured thigh, but the defender requires at least another reserve game before he can be added to the squad.

Aston Villa will make a late check on the fitness of central defender James Collins.

Collins has been sidelined with a calf injury but Villa need him to be available as Richard Dunne (shoulder) and Carlos Cuellar (hamstring) are both ruled out.

Left-back Nathan Baker should be in contention after missing Wednesday's FA Cup defeat at Manchester City through a bout of concussion. Record signing Darren Bent will be available after being cup-tied for the Eastlands match.

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

Aston Villa (from): Friedel, Walker, L Young, Collins, Clark, Baker, Albrighton, Pires, Reo-Coker, Downing, A Young, Bent, Marshall, Delph, Herd, Petrov, Bradley, Bannan, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Delfouneso.
