New striker Tuncay is set to make his Bolton debut after finally having his work permit granted.

The Turkey forward has spent the last 10 days in limbo, waiting for the red tape to be sorted, but with international clearance already attained, manager Owen Coyle is likely to throw him straight into the fray.

Further changes are anticipated at the Reebok Stadium, with Salford-born teenager Joe Riley expected to make his debut at right-back. Gretar Steinsson (foot) is definitely out.

Gary Simpson is expected to name an unchanged Macclesfield team.

Although Simpson's side suffered no further injury concerns following their 0-0 draw against Bristol Rovers, current absentees Waide Fairhurst (ankle), Paul Morgan (broken arm), Colin Daniel (hernia) and Vinny Mukendi (hamstring) are unlikely to be able to recover in time for the game at the Reebok Stadium.

Mukendi is the most likely to be named on the substitutes' bench after playing a reserve game on Monday, but both he and Fairhurst will have to undergo a late fitness test on Wednesday and therefore both remain major doubts.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Knight, Gardner, Cahill, Robinson, Petrov, Reo-Coker, Pratley, Eagles, M Davies, Muamba, Klasnic, Bogdan, Alonso, Wheater, Blake, Tuncay, Blakeman, Riley, Connolly.
