There will be quite a lot of scratch-outs on Neil Lennon's team sheet this week. And he will not be facing a relegation-threatened side like Rotherham United. Wolverhampton Wanderers are making the trip up to Lancashire just three points out of the playoff spots, and they would love to solidify their own position while dealing Bolton's (fading) promotion hopes a critical blow.
Jay Spearing has finally left Wanderers, reportedly joining Blackburn Rovers on loan for the rest of the season. Emile Heskey has suffered a hamstring injury and will be out for a while, joining Craig Davies in the trainer's room. Adam Le Fondre will make his debut for the home side, along with Portugese starlet Rochinha. And speaking of starlets, Zach Clough is expected to return from his own hamstring problem. There is also a rumor that Chung-Yong Lee is nearing match fitness. I'm not sure I believe that one.

There you have it. I don't think there will be drastic changes, but I think there will be changes. Lennon does not like to change a winning side, but after the debacle at The New York Stadium, this is no longer a winning side. I'm not expecting a return to winning ways either. I'll say a 1-1 draw.
