Bolton v Reading: Lineups and Live Match Thread

I'll bring the ball. - Chris Brunskill

It's the home opener! Bolton Wanderers have drawn their first league match away and won their first cup match away. Now it's time to return to the friendly confines of Reebok Stadium, where promotion favorites Reading will try to set the tone for the season with a big result up north.

Keith Andrews has been loaned out and Jay Spearing has been brought in on a permanent deal.  Both of these moves, combined with a Chris Eagles injury picked up last Saturday have had a big effect on Bolton's starting XI.  I'm sure Dougie Freedman didn't expect to be chopping and changing this early in the season, but sometimes that is the way it goes.

It looks like a 4-5-1 to me, with Ngog dropping into a deeper role behind Beckford.  Thoughts?
