Happy New Year Everybody! Hopefully Dougie Freedman's men have forgotten their old acquaintance with conceding goals at an alarming rate.

Dougie Freedman has made some of the attacking changes we talked about in yesterday's preview for Bolton. Mark Davies takes over for Andre Moritz, which I believe is fitness related. The 4-2-3-1 formation remains, with forward Joe Mason coming back in for Jermaine Beckford.  In other notable news, young midfielder Josh Vela has made the substitute's bench.

The Bolton back line remains the same.  Boro have come out with a lot of firepower in the starting XI and on the bench. They want to score. What do you think Readers, can the Whites get a rare home win?
