For the second time in the space of four days, Bolton hit the road knowing victory could see them escape the Championship relegation zone.

Having led for 70 minutes at The Den on Saturday, Wanderers had looked set to leapfrog Millwall on their way out of trouble, only for a late equaliser to send Phil Parkinson's side back into the bottom three.

Next up is a trip to Sheffield Wednesday, who will begin the evening four places and three points above the Trotters, for whom a two goal win would see them move above the Owls in the midweek standings.

Bolton will assess the fitness of Will Buckley and Josh Magennis ahead of the journey to Hillsborough, after both were withdrawn last time out with minor injuries.

Buckley was taken off after complaining of cramp in the capital, with manager Parkinson taking no chances with the winger's recent hamstring issues, while Magennis picked up a dead leg inside the opening 45 minutes and was replaced by Clayton Donaldson at the start of the second period.

Gary O'Neil is back in contention after recovering from a calf problem, while rotation could see names such as Jack Hobbs, Josh Vela, Erhun Oztumer and Craig Noone come in for starting roles.

Bolton Wanderers: from: Alnwick, Matthews, B Williams, Little, Taylor, Beevers, Hobbs, Olkowski, Wilson, Grounds, Wheater, Lowe, Vela, Oztumer, Ameobi, Buckley, Noone, Murphy, O'Neil, J Williams, Dyer, Wildschut, Donaldson, Doidge, Magennis
