Blackburn will be without a quartet of experienced defenders for the relegation clash.

Scott Dann has been ruled out for six weeks with a groin injury, joining Ryan Nelsen, Michel Salgado and Gael Givet on the sidelines.

The one piece of good news for Rovers, who remain second-bottom following their home defeat by West Brom on Saturday, is that Junior Hoilett has recovered from a hamstring strain and is available.

Bolton defender David Wheater serves the final game of a four-match suspension.

Defender Sam Ricketts will step up his bid for a first-team comeback with a game for the reserves this week.

Midfielder Stuart Holden has returned to the club from the United States after undergoing rehabilitation on a serious knee injury, but manager Owen Coyle will select from the same squad which lost at Fulham on Saturday.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Bunn, Olsson, Samba, Lowe, Hanley, Nzonzi, Rochina, Pedersen, Petrovic, Dunn, Hoilett, Yakubu, Goodwillie, Formica, Roberts, Vukcevic, Slew, Blackman, Henley.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Boyata, Cahill, Knight, Eagles, Robinson, Muamba, Petrov, K Davies, Klasnic, Tuncay, Bogdan, M Davies, Pratley, Ngog, Blake, Kakuta, Reo-Coker.
