The pair have both been sidelined for the past month with knee injuries but will be included in manager Lee Clark's squad for the game at St Andrews on Saturday.

"We have Lee Novak and Neal Eardley back and available, but unfortunately we've lost Mark Duffy to a serious calf injury. He'll be out from four to eight weeks, which is a big blow," Clark said.

"The Bolton players have a new manager to impress, they're playing for their futures basically, they're fighting for their lives. We expected a tough game before Neil Lennon took over, and we're expecting an even tougher one now.

"We were delighted with the way the players responded after the home defeat by Fulham. You can't pick a more intimidating place to go to than Millwall but we did terrifically well there and the following Saturday at Charlton, where we should have got maximum points as well.

"If we can beat Bolton it will be seven points from nine, which will be a terrific return. Our performance level at home is completely different to where it was over the past couple of years, but we must take our chances."
