    • 14.55 The only Premier League win for both teams this season has come against QPR. Bolton have not picked up a single point since that success at Loftus Road, and Wigan are on a four-match losing streak in the league. It is too early for talk of a relegation 'six-pointer', but both sides are in desperate need of a victory.
    • 14.50 His counterpart Owen Coyle believes the Trotters now have a series of winnable matches, having been beaten by Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks. "We now have to pick ourselves up and go into a group of games that I believe we can win - the players have to share that belief, and the desire to show their quality when they cross that white line," he says.
    • 14.47 Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is not worried about league position at this stage of the season, and more concerned about performances. "If you are looking at the table and trying to draw any conclusions now, you are going to be wrong. The difference between teams from 8th to 20th is very small and there are still the best part of eight months of the competition to go."
    • 14.45 This fixture ended in a 1-1 draw just under a year ago. Rodallega put the Latics ahead, with Johan Elmander levelling in the second-half for Bolton. Both of these sides enter this fixture in the bottom three.
    • 14.40 Bolton are set to line up in a 4-4-2 formation, with Kevin Davies partnering David Ngog in attack. David Wheater returns from suspension, but Ivan Klasnic only makes the bench after his ban. Goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen has recovered from injury and replaces Adam Bogdan after his horror show against Chelsea.
    • 14.40 Steve Gohouri returns from suspension for Wigan who will have the in-form Franco Di Santo leading the line. Hugo Rodallega makes a surprising appearance on the bench after his recent injury.
