Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has no new injury concerns.

David Carney is the only absentee, while Holloway could recall Jason Puncheon to the side after he replaced Sergei Kornilenko at half-time in the draw against Tottenham last weekend.

James Beattie might also be involved following a cameo appearance at White Hart Lane after recovering from illness.

Bolton will be without Mark Davies after the midfielder became the latest Trotters player to go under the knife.

The 23-year-old, who has made only two substitute appearances in the last two months, had surgery on Thursday to remove bone fragments in his ankle but boss Owen Coyle is optimistic he will be fit for pre-season.

Stuart Holden, Sean Davis (both knee) and Sam Ricketts (Achilles) are all long-term absentees while Marcos Alonso is expected to be unavailable after his involvement in a fatal car accident in Madrid two weeks ago.

Blackpool (from): Gilks, Eardley, Cathcart, Crainey, Evatt, Southern, Adam, Varney, Taylor-Fletcher, Campbell, Grandin, Baptiste, Sylvestre, Puncheon, Vaughan, Phillips, Ormerod, Beattie, Reid, Kornilenko, Rachubka, Kingson.

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