Hull signed Sunderland winger Ahmed Elmohamady on a season-long loan on Thursday and he could make his debut for the Tigers if he is registered in time.

Tom Cairney is Hull manager Steve Bruce's only new injury concern.

The club is waiting for scan results to confirm the full extent of Cairney's knee injury, which he picked up during the Tigers' 3-2 Capital One Cup defeat at Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday when he was felled by a James Husband tackle.

Liam Rosenior and Robert Koren are back in contention after recovering from the injuries that kept them out of Hull's cup defeat.

Striker Matty Fryatt is still on the sidelines with an Achilles injury, but otherwise Bruce has a full squad to pick from as he looks to win his second home game of the season.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle could be without Joshua Vela and Benik Afobe.

Vela was substituted after seven minutes of Tuesday's League Cup defeat with a knee injury.

Fellow midfielder Darren Pratley replaced him on the night and is expected to start as Vela awaits the results of a recent scan.

Striker Afobe was also withdrawn in that fixture with a rib injury and faces a late fitness test. Marvin Sordell replaced him and could deputise but Coyle is more hopeful on his recovery time.

David Ngog played 45 minutes for the reserves in midweek but is still a couple of weeks away from a first team return.

Stuart Holden and David Wheater (both knee) remain long-term injury absentees.
