SAM Ricketts keeps his place as Owen Coyle names an unchanged side from the one that won at Wolves last weekend. That means no place for Gretar Steinsson on the full back’s return from suspension.

There a couple of familiar faces in the Newcastle line-up, with former Wanderers Kevin Nolan and Danny Guthrie both starting on their returns to the Reebok as the Magpies look to end Bolton’s three-match unbeaten run.

Wanderers: Jaaskelainen, Robinson, Cahill, Muamba, Taylor, Holden, Elmander, Knight, K Davies, Rickettes, Lee. Subs: Bogdan, Steinsson, Petrov, M Davies, Klasnic, Moreno, Blake.

Newcastle: Krul, Coloccini, Enrique, Nolan, Williamson, Guthrie, Carroll, Simpson, Smith, Gutierrez, Ameobi. Subs: Campbell, Routledge, Lovenkrands, Perch, Taylor, Ranger, Soderberg.

Referee: Howard Webb.
