Rotherham United v Bolton Wanderers: Predictions

We know that Emile Heskey is out, but who will be in the starting XI three short days after an epic performance at Liverpool?

There are a lot of rumors that Zach Clough will finally be back in contention after his hamstring injury two weeks ago.  We haven't seen Clough in action since his extraordinary debut against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup third round.  I personally would prefer to see Conor Wilkinson start and Clough, if fit, make a cameo appearance off the bench.  Mark Davies is out long-term, Chung-Yong Lee's future is unclear, and it is wise to not risk the young attack until he is fully fit and ready to go.

I would make a few changes from the Liverpool match, but Neil Lennon has shown no indication that he will change a winning team:

Adam Bogdan

Kevin McNaughton Matt Mills Dorian Dervite Tim Ream

Rob Hall Darren Pratley Neil Danns Josh Vela Liam Feeney

Conor Wilkinson

That is what I would do if I were the manager.  Just a few changes, but important changes I think.  Eidur Gudjohnsen's performance suffered noticeably when he had to play two games very close to each other, so I would rather bring him in off the bench.

Rotherham United are in poor form, Bolton Wanderers are not, and I am predicting a 2-0 away win for there Trotters.  #COYWM!!!
