Sports Mole previews Bolton Wanderers' Championship clash with Doncaster Rovers.

Bolton Wanderers are hoping to return to winning ways against Doncaster Rovers this weekend following back-to-back defeats against Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town.

The Trotters' current run of form has left them languishing in 18th place in the Championship, but only one point separates them from their opponents in 15th ahead of kickoff.

Mark Davies and Josh Vela are back in training for Dougie Freedman's team, yet will remain sidelined for the Doncaster clash to give them the opportunity to regain match fitness.

Chris Eagles has been passed match fit despite taking a knock midweek, but may have to settle for a place on the substitutes' bench.

Doncaster are without the services of injured midfielder Richie Wellens, who could be replaced by David Cotterill following his goalscoring exploits against Birmingham City in midweek.

This fixture was last played competitively in 1987, but the teams met for an FA Cup tie in 2007, which Bolton won 4-0.
