Bolton Wanderers host Bristol City today as the Whites continue their desperate search for just a second victory of the season.

Even if they win today Wanderers will remain in the relegation zone, but they could move to within one point of today's visitors with all three points.

Neil Lennon has rung the changes once again, with Stephen Dobbie starting, Shola Ameobi returning up front, Mark Davies back from injury, and Josh Vela moving to right-back with Prince shifted to centre-back. That means Max Clayton is somehow dropped to the bench despite being our only decent threat in attack in recent games.

Bristol City look to be lining up with three at the back, with Premier League loanees Elliott Bennett and Nathan Baker, from Norwich City and Aston Villa respectively, alongside Aden Flint. Leading the line is free scoring Jonathan Kodjia, who has scored eight goals in 15 matches this season.
