Wanderers' defensive woes have been well documented of late, but I don't think anyone expected this. Either Liam Feeney will start at right-back (has anyone ever seen him defend or tackle anyone?) or manager Neil Lennon has drastically revert to an untested 3-5-2 formation. For the life of me I'm not sure how we are lining up this evening.
Either way, Josh Vela makes a very welcome return with his first start of the season as he comes in for Jay Spearing, while Craig Davies replaces Jermaine Beckford and Liam Feeney comes in for Oscar Threlkeld.
The visitors' will pose a real threat to Bolton's interesting new formation, with the lively Adam Le Fondre and Federico Macheda up front, and dangerous Peter Whittingham and Craig Noone providing the creativity from midfield.
