Bolton manager Dougie Freedman will once again be without defender Marc Tierney for the trip to Birmingham.

PA Sport Report

The former Norwich full-back will be sidelined for around five months after undergoing surgery on his fractured foot on Thursday.

Loanees Kevin McNaughton and Neil Danns made their Wanderers debuts in Tuesday's goalless draw with Blackpool and the duo are expected to keep their spots in the side.

Craig Davies is in contention to return following his recovery from a toe injury but Andre Moritz (groin) and Joe Riley, Mark Davies and Stuart Holden (all knee) remain sidelined.
