Everton v Bolton preview

Everton manager David Moyes will be able to call on Landon Donovan

for the game. It was announced in December that Donovan was

rejoining the Toffees on a two-month loan deal from the Los Angeles

Galaxy and the United States international is now available for

selection. Moyes, who was without Marouane Fellaini (abductor),

Seamus Coleman (thigh) and Royston Drenthe (unwell) for Sunday’s

1-0 win at West Brom, says he has “one or two knocks and a bit of

illness” in the squad to contend with. Bolton goalkeeper Jussi

Jaaskelainen is a major injury doubt for the trip. Jaaskelainen

picked up a thigh problem in the 1-1 draw with Wolves on New Year’s

Eve and will be replaced by Adam Bogdan in the starting line-up if

he fails to recover in time. Midfielder Darren Pratley missed the

contest on Saturday due to illness but is available again, while

manager Owen Coyle says defender Gary Cahill – who skippered the

Trotters against Wolves despite a fee for him having been agreed

with Chelsea – is “absolutely” a part of his plans for the clash at

Goodison Park as things stand. Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert,
