Adam Bogdan is likely to deputise for Jussi Jaaskelainen once again, even though the latter has returned to training following a thigh injury.

David Ngog is expected to face his former club for the first time after leaving Anfield in the summer.

Jay Spearing is still doubtful following the hamstring injury he sustained in the Carling Cup defeat of Manchester City.

Daniel Agger is fit again and could return in place of Jamie Carragher.


Coyle: Liverpool used to winning


Bolton boss Owen Coyle does not believe it will be long until Liverpool are challenging for top honours once again with a born winner like Kenny Dalglish at the helm.

Liverpool have failed to land a league title in almost 22 years and have not triumphed in any competition since their 2006 FA Cup final win over West Ham.

But in Dalglish, the Reds have a winner of nine league championships as a player and manager, to go with three European Clup wins.

Dalglish has also guided his current Liverpool side to the verge of a spot in the final of the Carling Cup, and Coyle expects the Anfield trophy cabinet to be replenished soon.

"Kenny Dalglish is used to winning trophies," he said prior to Bolton's weekend encounter with Liverpool.

"Liverpool will deem it as a long time since their last championship but in that period they have still won trophies, including the Champions League.

"Now they are on the verge of reaching the Carling Cup final, when they would be big favourites given a team from the Championship will be the opposition.

"There is no doubt Liverpool will always be amongst the honours."
