Bolton will make late decisions on the fitness of Chris Taylor and Dean Moxey ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League One game at home to Oldham.
Taylor and Moxey are both hoping to recover from illness in time for the fixture while midfielder James Henry is struggling to overcome a hamstring strain.
Striker Max Clayton has returned to full training after a knee injury but is not expected to be ready this weekend.
Midfielders Mark Davies (knee) and Darren Pratley (broken leg) remain long-term absentees.
Oldham have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match.
Defenders Cameron Dummigan and Ryan McLaughlin are both available again after being away with Northern Ireland Under-21s.
The Latics also have forward Calaum Jahraldo-Martin in contention after his return from playing for Antigua and Barbuda.
Oldham sit 21st in the table but recorded a morale-boosting 2-1 win at Gillingham last weekend thanks to Ryan Flynn's late winner.
