Bolton will check on Gary O’Neil ahead of the Sky Bet Championship home clash with Middlesbrough on Tuesday.
Midfielder O’Neil came off in the first half of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Ipswich at the University of Bolton Stadium due to a stomach bug. It is expected that Jack Hobbs (back) and Luke Murphy (calf) will still be unavailable, and Jason Lowe and Yanic Wildschut (both ankle) definitely remain sidelined.
Troubled Wanderers were left eight points adrift of safety in 23rd place following the loss against rock-bottom Ipswich.
It capped a turbulent week for the Trotters, during which their players went on strike over the unpaid wages of non-playing staff, the club survived another High Court winding-up order before a prohibition notice, and an IT failure threatened the postponement of the match.
It remains to be seen whether there will be any involvement on Tuesday for Middlesbrough’s George Friend.
The defender was unable to continue and substituted just after the half-hour mark in the 3-1 loss at Swansea on Saturday, having sustained what looked to be a problem to his left leg.
Midfielder Lewis Wing is sidelined because of a groin issue.
Boro – eighth in the table, four points outside the play-offs – have lost each of their last six matches.
