Match Preview









No new worries for Bolton

Bolton have no fresh injury concerns for their FA Cup clash with Sky Bet League One rivals Sheffield United.

Striker Max Clayton could be handed a first start of the season following a lengthy battle with a knee injury if boss Phil Parkinson opts to change his line-up.

David Wheater failed to make the bench for last weekend's win at Northampton as he nursed a back injury, but the centre-back may yet feature against the Blades.

Mark Howard (thumb), Darren Pratley (broken leg) and Mark Davies (knee) remain long-term absentees.

Sheffield United defender James Wilson could return to contention, while boss Chris Wilder has no major new injury problems.

Wilson, sidelined since early October due to an ankle injury, played in a friendly against Oldham on Wednesday and could be added to Wilder's squad.

Fellow defender Jake Wright remains doubtful after missing the midweek home defeat to Walsall with a hamstring strain.

Caolan Lavery and Harry Chapman are hoping to be handed starts, while striker Matt Done and midfielder Stefan Scougall are both pushing for recalls.
