Moritz back for Bolton

Bolton will have Andre Mortiz included in their squad as they look to continue their resurgence against fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday.

The Trotters finally recorded their first win of the season prior to the international break against Birmingham, which came on the back of two successive draws with Yeovil and Blackpool.

That eased the pressure on Dougie Freedman somewhat, with his side now out of the bottom three, and Moritz (groin) gives him another option in midfield.

Joe Riley, Marc Tierney, Mark Davies and Stuart Holden are all long-term injury absentees and it remains to be seen whether Freedman will recall the likes of Zat Knight, Chung-Yong Lee and Chris Eagles after they were all relegated to the bench in Bolton's last two games.

Sheffield Wednesday's new loan signing Damian Martinez will be included in the squad.

The 21-year-old Arsenal goalkeeper arrived on an initial month-long deal earlier this week and is expected to named on the substitutes' bench.

Defender Reda Johnson is still struggling with the groin injury that forced him out of the home draw with Ipswich in the Owls' last outing, so Joe Mattock is on stand-by and could step in for his second start of the season.

Striker Chris Maguire is in contention for his first start since mid-August following a toe injury, but midfielder David Prutton (ankle) is out for up to six weeks and skipper Anthony Gardner (Achilles) remains a long-term absentee.
