Wigan Athletic v Bolton Wanderers: Lineups and Discussion

There has been lots of friendly banter this week, some of it even clever (but not really). It's finally Sunday though, the match is here, and it's time for Bolton Wanderers to show their quality.

Could we see this today?

The team sheets are out, the meat pies are cooked, the lager is poored, and it's time to settle down for a nice, pleasant, controversy-free Lancashire derby.  Dougie Freedman has made one change, dropping Chris Eagles to the bench in favour of Neil Danns.  Keep in mind, this could be fitness-related.  Speaking of fitness, as has been anticipated all week, Mark Davies is on the sub's bench for Bolton.

Also on the long term injury front, Stu Holden is apparently on a cannonball run from Philadelphia to Wigan this weekend.  His last known location was Manchester International Airport.  We'll keep you posted as details become available.
