Davies tipped to return
Bolton are hopeful that Mark Davies will be fit to face Aston Villa, while Owen Coyle will also check on the fitness of Ryo Miyaichi.
Wanderers go into the game knowing they have to string a run of results together otherwise they will be relegated as they sit four points off safety with two games in hand.
Davies picked up an ankle injury towards the end of the 1-1 draw with Swansea on Saturday and although he could not train on Monday it is thought he should be fit to play.
With Darren Pratley also on the sidelines, Coyle is short of options but is likely to go with youngster Josh Vela should Davies be ruled out of the Villa Park clash.
Miyaichi also has a knock from the weekend but it is not serious and he should be fit to take his place in the side.
Meanwhile, Coyle insists it is still in Bolton's hands and has called on his players to stand up and be counted in the last five games of the season.
"There are six points available from the games in hand," Coyle revealed. "If you told me we'd get six points from those games, you'd do somersaults to get them.
"We'd have loved to have those points in the bag, but we have the opportunity and we have to maximise that opportunity. Bottom line is that we decide our own fate."
