Sheffield Wednesday are looking to go 10 league games unbeaten, but haven't won at Bolton since Boxing Day 2012.
The injuries continue to mount for Sheffield Wednesday despite the Owls' nine-game unbeaten league run.
Steven Fletcher is the latest to fall victim, having been forced off during Saturday's draw with Derby County.
And the striker's omission from the latest Scotland squad - named earlier on Tuesday - suggests he won't be fit to face Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.
With Lucas Joao having struggled for fitness of late, Fletcher's place is likely to go to Atdhe Nuhiu - who performed well during his cameo at Derby - although the recovering Sam Winnall is also an option.
Elsewhere, Bruce is likely to favour a settled side, as he has done throughout his short reign as Sheffield Wednesday manager.
