Barnsley v Bolton Wanderers: Lineups and Live Thread

It's Boxing Day! Nothing better to do than follow a Bolton Wanderers away match. At least the Bolton players will hear less booing at the Oakwell Stadium.

There are a lot of changes today.  Dougie Freedman has put his team in a standard 4-2-3-1, which has always been his favorite formation. This lineup does appear fairly well-suited to it, especially with Mark Davies' return to the team sheet. Zat Knight has replaced Matt Mills (who is one yellow card away from a suspension) as well.  The Twitterati are not going to be happy.  What do you think of the starting XI?
