It looks like Samu Saiz will be fit for Bolton after all.

Paul Heckingbottom said, in regards to Saiz’s fitness:

We know he has an injury there.

It’s something we’re going to have to be conscious of. He’s got to 95 per cent speed so we’re hoping we can manage him through, especially these first couple of weeks. We know the longer we can keep him training and out with us the better he’s going to get over time.

So it looks like there is a good chance that Saiz will get at least a start against Bolton, but it probably means he won’t go the full 90 minutes if he does play. Will he lift the team to a good result? We can only hope.
