Bolton are sweating on the fitness of defender Danny Shittu for the Premier League clash against Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Saturday.The Nigeria international suffered an ankle injury in a collision with Didier Drogba in the 4-3 defeat to Chelsea last weekend and has been having intensive treatment all week.Manager Gary Megson has no other fresh injury concerns and is likely to keep faith in the same players who lost at Stamford Bridge, meaning young midfielder Chris Basham, who scored last week, will again have to settle for a place on the bench.Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Al Habsi, Steinsson, Cahill, Shittu, Andrew O'Brien, Samuel, Muamba, McCann, Cohen, Gardner, Kevin Davies, Elmander, Basham, Taylor, Hunt, Smolarek, Puygrenier.
