Bolton will again assess Chris Eagles and David Ngog prior to the lunchtime kick-off with QPR.
Winger Eagles has been absent since facing former club Burnley on the opening day of the Sky Bet Championship season and is once more rated 50-50 due to his ankle injury.
Striker Ngog missed the defeat to Nottingham Forest because of illness yet he partook in light training on Thursday.
Wanderers are already without Stuart Holden, Mark Davies and Joe Riley (all knee) while midfielder Andre Moritz is still struggling for fitness with boss Dougie Freedman suggesting he may have to wait until Tuesday's clash with Tranmere.
Junior Hoilett is set to miss out for Rangers.
The former Blackburn winger pulled up with a hamstring problem during the second half of last weekend's 1-0 win over Ipswich and could face a spell on the sidelines.
Midfielder Alejandro Faurlin (thigh) and striker Andy Johnson (groin) missed out against Town and remain doubts.
Gary O'Neil could make his full debut following his recent switch from West Ham while rookie forward Tom Hitchcock is likely to be on the bench again after marking his first QPR appearance on Saturday with the late winner.
