Bolton boss Owen Coyle is hoping Daniel Sturridge and Gretar Steinsson will be available.

On-loan Chelsea striker Sturridge has missed the last two games with an ankle problem but was due to return to training on Thursday along with Steinsson (knee).

Ricardo Gardner (hamstring) could also be fit but Mark Davies (ankle) is set to miss out again while Marcos Alonso is expected to be unavailable after his involvement in a fatal car accident in Madrid.

Jussi Jaaskelainen will return in goal.

Sunderland have been dealt three fresh injury blows ahead of the trip with the news that Kieran Richardson, Michael Turner and Lee Cattermole could all miss the rest of the season.

Richardson has a stress fracture of his left fibula and he, Turner (knee) and Cattermole (back) are likely to join Craig Gordon and Fraizer Campbell (both knee), Asamoah Gyan and Danny Welbeck (both hamstring) in sitting out the final three games of the campaign.

Ryan Noble (knee) returns to the squad and Jordan Henderson (groin) has a chance, but Anton Ferdinand (hamstring) remains a doubt and Titus Bramble (knee) continues to be assessed.

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

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Carson, Onuoha, Ferdinand, Mensah, Bardsley, Angeleri, Cattermole, Muntari, Riveros, Henderson, Malbranque, Elmohamady, Sessegnon, Zenden, Colback, Noble, Knott, Adams, Lynch.
