Bolton will look to bounce back from the FA Cup defeat to Leeds United last Saturday when they face Wolves at Molineux tonight. The match represents the only chance the Whites have of doing the 'double' over a team. Bolton will be buoyed by the fact that they have only lost once in the last ten (D3 W6) meetings against Wolves, and have only failed to score in two of the last eleven trips to Molineux. Tonight will also see Bolton reunited with former Trotters strikers Adam Le Fondre and Joe Mason.

Team News

Bolton Wanderers

Emile Heskey looks to have shaken off a calf injury, so could start from the bench. Darren Pratley faces a late fitness test. Lawrie Wilson has returned from his loan spell with Peterborough United. Max Clayton remains the only long term absentee.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Mike Williamson has a hamstring injury so looks unlikely to play. Joe Mason should make his debut, while Nouha Dicko, Kortney Hause and Jordan Graham are the long term absentees.
