Team News: Bolton Wanderers v Fulham

Bolton can have their say in the Championship promotion picture yet again on Saturday, when they play host to Fulham at Macron Stadium.

Having beaten both Cardiff City and Bristol City on home soil in recent weeks, Wanderers will look to continue their fine form by picking up a rare victory over the Cottagers.

After being on the wrong end of a stoppage-time goal in a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage last October, the Trotters have picked up maximum points in just one of the last 15 league meetings between the sides - coincidentally coming three years ago to the day, courtesy of goals from Eidur Gudjohnsen, Saidy Janko and Adam Le Fondre's first for the club during his initial loan spell.

Following the transfer deadline day sale of Gary Madine, Phil Parkinson fielded a new-look Bolton side last time out, with Sammy Ameobi joining Tyler Walker in attack, while a back-three of Mark Beevers, David Wheater and Dorian Dervite excelled in their individual performances.

The majority of those who took to the field against Bristol City are expected to retain their places, although Zach Clough could come in for Walker as Parkinson looks to integrate the two on-loan Nottingham Forest forwards slowly into his plans.

Fellow deadline day arrival Jon Flanagan may have to wait for his debut due to the superb form of both Antonee Robinson and Mark Little, while Reece Burke is a doubt because of a back injury.

Will Buckley (hamstring), Stephen Darby (head) and Aaron Wilbraham (calf) are all considered doubts, and there remains no place for Darren Pratley as he continues his recovery from a broken leg.

Bolton Wanderers: from: Alnwick, Howard, Turner, Little, A Taylor, Dervite, Beevers, Flanagan, Robinson, Osede, Darby, Wheater, Burke, Brockbank, Lonsdale, Vela, C Taylor, Karacan, Ameobi, Buckley, Noone, Charsley, Pratley, Morais, Henry, King, Perry, Earing, White, Le Fondre, Wilbraham, Walker, Hall, Clough
