Freedman has no new injury worries - Tyrone Mears (illness) and Keith Andrews (Achilles) remain on the sidelines, while defender David Wheater is targeting a return next week - but is keen to keep his players fresh as they attempt to take superb form at the Reebok Stadium on the road.

Wanderers' 2-0 victory over Wolves last weekend marked a seventh consecutive triumph on home turf, quite a contrast to one win over the same number of games on their travels following February's 2-0 defeat of Sunderland in the FA Cup.

"The players are looking forward to the games coming up, we have worked very hard for the last three months on the structure of the team and the way we play," Freedman told Bolton's official website.

"When players get thrown into the team like Medo Kamara, Danny Butterfield and Marvin Sordell, they perform at the same level and standard as everybody else.

"This next month is about detail and keeping the lads fresh. The players know the structure and what we are all about."
