Bolton Wanderers make the journey to Lancashire rivals Burnley today eager to make amends for the 4-3 defeat at Queens Park Rangers before the international break.

Wanderers go into today's clash sitting in the relegation zone, while Burnley occupy the final play-off position just two points off second place and four points behind leaders Brighton.

Lennon's solution to rectifying the problems at QPR has been to drop Mark Davies, who has probably been our best player of the season so far, with Jay Spearing coming into the midfield alongside Darren Pratley and Neil Danns. Summer signing Jose Manuel Casado makes his debut at left-back in place of the injured Dean Moxey. Other changes at the back see Derik Osede replace Prince, while David Wheater comes in for Francesco Pisano who, along with Lawrie Wilson, doesn't even make the bench. That leaves Wanderers without a recognised right-back so it'll be interesting to see who fills in there, or whether there's a switch to 3-5-2.

Burnley look likely to line up in a 4-4-2, with plenty of threat from the widemen George Boyd and Scott Arfield and a solid looking defence and central midfield. If that wasn't bad enough there's a real goal threat in the form of Sam Vokes and £7 million man Andre Gray.
