Football - Whites have Hutton available

Full-back Alan Hutton could make his first domestic appearance of the season for Bolton's derby clash with Blackburn.

PA Sport Report

The Scotland international has not appeared in an English league game since his spell with Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day 2012, but Hutton agreed a one-month loan switch from Aston Villa to the Reebok Stadium on Friday afternoon and is considered match-fit.

Striker Jermaine Beckford is expected to return to contention from a hamstring problem although central defender Matt Mills (knee) and midfielder Darren Pratley (shoulder) could both miss out.

Midfielder Stuart Holden, who has played just five times for Wanderers since March 2011 because of a succession of knee injuries, will play for the club's Under-21s against Everton on Monday.
