Tamir Cohen is set to gain a rare start for Bolton Wanderers this weekend.
Bolton boss Owen Coyle is short of central midfielders for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League trip to Birmingham.
Stuart Holden has been ruled out for six months after damaging knee ligaments in the defeat by Manchester United last time out, while Mark Davies is a major doubt as he continues to battle an ankle injury.
That means Cohen could make his first Premier League start of the season. England Under-21 international Fabrice Muamba is also in contention.
