The match begins.
Bolton have Paul Robinson back for Wednesday's Barclays Premier League clash with Wigan at the Reebok Stadium but are still missing a number of players.
Robinson is available again after serving a one-match suspension but it is thought that the game will be too soon for injured pair Stuart Holden and Gretar Steinsson.
Lee Chung-yong remains on international duty with South Korea while Tamir Cohen is not expected to return for this fixture following the death of his father.
Joey O'Brien, Sean Davis, Ricardo Gardner and Jlloyd Samuel are all absent too.
Bolton made an ultimately disappointing start to 2011 with their 2-1 defeat at Liverpool on New Year's Day, although boss Owen Coyle felt his players gave a good account of themselves and that Joe Cole's last-gasp winner should have been ruled out for offside - the latest in a long line of decisions the Scot has seen as being unjust towards his team.
"If you wanted to sit down with me one afternoon I could show you a DVD of probably 16 major decisions that have gone against us this season - that led to goals, or not getting penalties or what have you," Coyle said.
"We should have had a penalty in the game at Anfield as well - there was a clear handball, and we never got it. If, as they say, it evens itself out, then we are due some huge decisions in the second half of the season, that's for sure.
"Don't get me wrong, as managers we are all biased and want all the decisions for our own football club. I totally accept that, but I think when things are as clear-cut as that, then they have got to be given."
Wigan will again be without the suspended Charles N'Zogbia.
Antolin Alcaraz looks likely to retain his place at the back after showing no ill-effects from a previous thigh injury when playing 90 minutes in the defeat to Newcastle on Sunday.
New signing Adrian Lopez, the former Spain Under-21 international and Deportivo La Coruna defender, is expected to be on the bench.
Wigan have chalked up just one win in seven league games and are involved in the relegation mix.
However boss Roberto Martinez does not believe that statistic paints a true picture of how his side are shaping up.
The defeat by Alan Pardew's side came after a thrilling draw against Arsenal and a win at Wolves.
Martinez said: "It is the nature of the competition. After the first 10 games we all thought Chelsea were going to run away with it (the title). Now there are five contenders.
"To avoid relegation you have six, seven teams involved. It will come down to very small details. After the performance against Wolves and Arsenal we were starting to reach a very good level.
"While Sunday was a disappointment, the result should not cloud the good work we have been doing. The squad will get a lot stronger when the injured players and suspended players return. I have been very pleased with the players who have come in. We are a lot stronger now than we were two months ago."
Stam rescues Wigan
Ronnie Stam scored an 80th-minute equaliser to salvage a precious point for Wigan and leave high-flying neighbours Bolton bitterly frustrated with a 1-1 draw.
When on-loan Benfica forward Rodrigo Moreno produced a delightful finish to put Owen Coyle's men ahead in the 54th minute, the stage was set for the Trotters to emerge victorious.
Wigan had already lost on-loan playmaker Tom Cleverley to injury in the 12th minute and saw goalkeeper Chris Kirkland carried off on a stretcher shortly after the hour mark.
Yet Latics boss Roberto Martinez has fashioned a side with guts.
His men refused to lie down and Dutchman Stam, a summer signing from FC Twente, stabbed home at the far post in the 80th minute to claim his first Wigan goal and earn a booking for his celebrations in front of the visiting supporters.
Bolton mounted a late rally but Johan Elmander was denied by a superb save from substitute Wigan stopper Mike Pollitt and Fabrice Muamba blazed over from six yards.
Kirkland, back from a loan spell at Leicester, was given the gloves with Ali Al-Habsi being ineligible to face the Trotters under the terms of his loan.
Wigan's relegation plight was underlined when an early own-goal from Chelsea defender Jose Bosingwa put Wolves 1-0 up at Molineux, increasing the pressure on Martinez's men before they had even kicked off at the Reebok Stadium.
Yet the Latics did not seem fazed in the slightest.
Kirkland - making his first start for Wigan since facing Bolton in the corresponding fixture at the DW Stadium on October 23 - claimed an early cross from Matt Taylor with calm assurance.
Moments later Elmander's delightful flick set Taylor into space inside the left channel but his low cross was well blocked by Antolin Alcaraz.
Wigan were then dealt a major blow when Cleverley, on loan from Manchester United, pulled up with what appeared to be a hamstring injury and was replaced by Mohamed Diame.
It was a severe blow to Martinez at such an early stage in the game but Bolton struggled to create genuine goalscoring opportunities as rain continued to fall.
Wigan's greatest threat came from striker Hugo Rodallega, who ploughed a lone furrow up front but showed enough quality on the ball to suggest he could pilfer a goal.
The Colombian frontman forced a fine save from Jussi Jaaskelainen in the 32nd minute when his fierce 25-yard free-kick was parried clear by the long-serving Finn.
Bolton held the upper hand without ever producing the skill required to unlock the Latics' dogged defence.
The Trotters went close twice within the space of as many minutes in similar circumstances shortly after the restart.
In the 47th minute Taylor's free-kick from the right was greeted by a powerful header from Gary Cahill but his effort flew just wide.
Then a corner from Taylor, again from the right flank, was completely missed by Kirkland and Cahill headed over from the edge of the six-yard box.
The Trotters began to dominate and broke the deadlock in the 54th minute when a delightful passing sequence led to Mark Davies spotting Rodrigo making a diagonal run inside the Wigan penalty area.
Rodrigo took a touch to steady himself and then clipped a superb left-foot shot past Kirkland from the edge of the six-yard box for his first goal in Bolton colours.
Bolton pressed for a second and after Elmander caught Kirkland with a late challenge, the goalkeeper required lengthy treatment before being carried off on a stretcher and replaced by Pollitt.
Yet Wigan refused to lie down and were level in the 80th minute with a goal that was testament to their proud passing game.
Rodallega found right-back Steve Gohouri advancing at pace down the flank and his low first-time cross was sidefooted home at the far post by the onrushing Stam.
Stam was booked for rushing towards the celebrating Latics fans but Bolton came back strongly in search of a winner.
They peppered Pollitt's penalty area with a series of teasing crosses but the veteran stopper made a superb stoppage-time save to repel Elmander's 12-yard drive before Muamba blazed wastefully from close range.
