Blackpool v Bolton Wanderers: Lineup predictions

With Mark Davies out, Darren Pratley back from suspension, Chung-Yong Lee jet-lagged, and Adam Bogdan possibly fit, Neil Lennon has some decisions to make. But before he makes his, we make ours.

Neil Lennon has used a few different formations in his short time as Bolton Wanderers manager.  There has been a 4-4-2, a 4-5-1, and a 4-2-3-1.  There may have even been an old 4-3-3 late in one match when we were behind.  He seems to be partial to the 4-4-2, although not opposed making tactical modifications within that set-up.

The injury to Mark Davies hurts.  He is certainly one of Bolton's most talented players, and he has been a big part of Lennon's early success.  That said, injuries are part of the game.  So here is my prediction for who will play from the start at Bloomfield Road tomorrow.

Andy Lonergan

Kevin McNaughton Matt Mills Dorian Dervite Tim Ream

Josh Vela Darren Pratley Chung-Yong Lee Neil Danns

Max Clayton Craig Davies

Blackpool FC have been terrible this season, so some might expect an easy three points.  Unfortunately, Bolton sides of the last few seasons have made a habit of dropping points in matches like this.  It will be a real test under Lennon.  And I think he will come away with a 2-1 win.

Those are my predictions, let's see yours.
