Chungy will be waving good-bye for a month very soon.

Neil Lennon has stuck with the same group that won against Blackburn Rovers, swapping Liam Trotter into the starting XI for Rob Hall.  Other than that, it's the same.  Wha's surprising about that is that Craig Davies is not in the 18-man squad.  Reports were that he would be.  Here is the entire startup XI:

Huddersfield Town Bolton Wanderers

GK: Alex Smithies

D: Conor Coady

D: Murray Wallace

D: Mark Hudson

D: Jack Robinson

M: Tommy Smith

M: Jonathan Hogg

M: Jacob Butterfield

F: Harry Bunn

F: James Vaughan

F: Sean Scannell

GK: Andy Lonergan

D: Josh Vela

D: Matt Mills

D: Dorian Dervite

D Tim Ream

M: Liam Trotter

M: Chung-Yong Lee

M: Neil Danns

M: Darren Pratley

M: Liam Feeney

F: Eidur Gudjohnsen

Huddersfield substitutes: Lloyd Allinson, Anthony Gerrard, Adam Hammill, Joe Lolley, Nahki Wells, Oscar Gobern, Lee Peltier

Bolton Substitutes: Adam Bogdan, Dean Moxey, Jay Spearing, Rob Hall, Emile Heskey, David Wheater, Zach Clough

What do you think?  I think he will have to be very judicious with Heskey and Gudjohnsen.  It's a 48-hour turnaround for two 36-year-olds who have barely played football the past twelve months.  When I thought Davies would be available I predicted a victory for Bolton.  Now that he is not I will say a 1-1 draw.
