A place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup is at stake on Saturday as Millwall tackle Bolton Wanderers at the Den.

Premier League strugglers Bolton come into the game on a back of a home defeat to Wigan last weekend while Millwall were held to a late 2-2 draw by Brighton in midweek.

Owen Coyle's men have done well away from the Reebok in FA Cup action after being unbeaten in their last four games.

Bolton and Millwall have been drawn together twice with the Trotters progressing on both occasions.

The last three games between Millwall and Bolton have ended 1-0, although the teams have not met since 1995 - an old First Division clash in which John McGinlay scored the winner.

Millwall news

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of Bolton.

The Lions came through Tuesday's dramatic 2-2 Championship draw with Brighton unscathed and have only a trio of midfielders occupying the sidelines with injuries.

Jimmy Abdou and Tamika Mkandawire remain in the treatment room with knee problems and are accompanied by Therry Racon, who is nursing an ankle injury.

Goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall returned to the bench at the Amex Stadium after an ankle knock and should keep his place amongst the substitutes.

Winger Liam Feeney and Andy Keogh both marked their promotions to the first team with goals and are likely to retain their places against the Trotters.

Bolton news

Bolton forward Kevin Davies has been ruled out of Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round tie at Millwall due to a knee injury.

Wanderers manager Coyle has revealed that Davies sustained medial ligament damage in last weekend's loss to Wigan and will miss the game, along with Tyrone Mears.

The defender is facing more time on the sidelines after suffering a setback in his recovery from a broken leg.

Striker Marvin Sordell is cup-tied, but Joe Riley may feature having regained his fitness after a groin problem.

There could be first Bolton starts for two January signings in centre-back Tim Ream, who is still yet to make his debut, and on-loan winger Ryo Miyaichi, an impressive substitute in the second half of the Wigan match.
