Bolton stiker Nicolas Anelka will miss Thursday's Uefa Cup clash with Crvena Zvezda as manager Gary Megson has opted to leave six of his key players at home.

Anelka, Kevin Davies, Kevin Nolan, Andy O'Brien, Ricardo Gardner and Jussi Jaaskelainen have not made the trip to Serbia as they are rested ahead of the weekend's Premier League match against fellow strugglers Wigan.

Nicky Hunt is expected to return after missing the 4-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday through suspension.

Loan signing Danny Guthrie is also available after being forced to sit out the Liverpool defeat due to the terms of his temporary move from the Reds.

Ivan Campo, who started against Liverpool, will not feature as he was not registered for the start of the competition under former Bolton boss Sammy Lee.
