Bolton defender Andy O´Brien is expected to be fit for the UEFA Cup match against Rabotnicki in Macedonia on Thursday.

It was feared he may have damaged a hamstring at the weekend in the defeat by Birmingham but the problem turned out to be severe cramp.

Midfielder Christian Wilhelmsson could come into contention after a thigh strain but Jlloyd Samuel is ruled out because of a hamstring injury.
