Bolton are without midfielders Karl Henry and Darren Pratley for their FA Cup third-round tie with Premier League Huddersfield.
The pair were both injured in Monday's victory over Hull with Pratley facing six weeks out with a hairline fracture of the fibula and Henry straining a hamstring.
Another midfielder, Josh Vela, may also be unavailable having missed training this week due to illness.
Forward Adam Armstrong has been recalled from his loan spell at Wanderers by Newcastle.
New signing Terence Kongolo will be in the squad for Huddersfield after joining on loan from Monaco this week.
Midfielder Philip Billing (ankle) could return after nearly three months out while Jon Gorenc Stankovic has returned to training as he works his way back from a long-term knee injury.
Joel Coleman will start in goal, but defender Chris Lowe is unavailable after picking up a foot injury during Monday's loss to Leicester and could also miss next weekend's Premier League clash with West Ham.
