Tranmere Rovers v. Bolton Wanderers: lineups and open match thread

Tony Marshall

Two teams struggling in league play meet up in a Capital One Cup clash at Prenton Park in hopes of kick-starting their respective league seasons with a confidence-boosting win. For Bolton Wanderers, that confidence boost will come with a resounding win and the strikers scoring. For Tranmere, that confidence boost will come simply from beating Bolton. Let's hope the latter doesn't happen.

Dougie Freedman will make changes to his lineup based on injury issues and not wanting to overuse certain players. Heros of the first round, Rob Hall and Sanmi Odelusi, both get the start, flanking Tom Eaves up front and Josh Vela, Medo Kamara, and Darren Pratley in the center of the park. With Tim Ream injured, Matt Mills will make his first appearance of the season in defense.
