Bolton hoping for quick recovery

Sky Bet Championship basement dwellers Bolton are hoping their internationals can shake off jet lag for Leeds' visit to the Reebok Stadium this Saturday.

South Korea's Chung-Yong Lee, Jamaica's Jermaine Beckford, Sierra Leone's Medo Kamara and Hungary's Adam Bogdan will all be checked over after the international break.

Chris Eagles, who has not started since the opening game of the season due to an ankle injury, has been declared fully fit while defensive duo Marc Tierney (groin) and Tim Ream (hamstring) have been in training to give boss Dougie Freedman plenty of options.

Freedman does, however, remain without Joe Riley, Mark Davies and Stuart Holden - the trio all long-term knee-injury victims.

Leeds manager Brian McDermott has a full-strength squad to choose from.

Striker Ross McCormack, plus midfield pair Rudy Austin and Paul Green have returned from international duty unscathed and are expected to feature against Wanderers, who are chasing their first league win of the season.

Teenage defender Sam Byram (hip) is edging closer to his first senior appearance since April having played 90 minutes in a midweek friendly, but is unlikely to feature.

McDermott must decide whether to retain recent signing Scott Wootton alongside Jason Pearce in central defence or recall Tom Lees, while left-back Aidy White is hoping to return to the squad and El-Hadji Diouf is pushing for his first start of the season.
