Bolton and Wolves renew their rivalry on Saturday when the two Premier League strugglers meet at Molineux.

It will be the first meeting between the two sides since April 2004, when a last minute Kevin Davies goal gave Bolton all three points on their travels.

Despite being the hero back in 2004, Davies will miss the game through suspension. That means Ivan Klasnic could be handed a start, although Johan Elmander will also be hopeful of getting the nod.

Andy O'Brien should continue alongside Gary Cahill in defence, with Gretar Steinsson at right-back, meaning no place for either Zat Knight or Sam Ricketts.

Lee Chung-Yong, Fabrice Muamba and Mark Davies are all fit again and will be pushing for a recall, with the latter returning to his former club for the first time.

Joey O'Brien and Sean Davies remain injury absentees from Gary Megson's squad.

The hosts go into the game rocked by the news that Michael Kightly will be out for two months with an ankle injury.

Chris Iwelumo and Ronald Zubar are also sidelined, meaning Kevin Doyle and Sylvain Ebanks-Blake should start in attack.

Greg Halford and Stefan Maierhofer have recovered from their respective injuries, but are expected to be named on the bench.
