Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle is happy with options at his disposal in the attacking department as they prepare to host champions Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.
Tuncay Sanli, David Ngog and Gael Kakuta all arrived at the Reebok Stadium during the summer transfer window to compensate for the departures of Daniel Sturridge and Johan Elmander.
Trotters captain Kevin Davies has already shown good form in the early stages of the 2011/12 campaign and so has striker Ivan Klasnic, giving Coyle a pleasant "dilemma" in terms of squad selection.
"The lads (Ngog, Kakuta and defender Dedryck Boyata) have settled in well," he enthused. "The senior players have really looked after them and there is no doubt that they have trained really well this week.
"What that does is give you a dilemma in picking the team, and we have to make sure we pick the best team possible.
"They are certainly in my thoughts. Without giving the team away, it's fair to say they will be looking to play a part at the weekend.
"We want competition in all positions over the pitch. The skipper and Ivan Klasnic have started really well, and we have added to that.
"It is always good to have that sort of threat because ultimately, to win games you have to score goals."
Bolton are currently tenth in the league standings with three points from as many matches.
