Bolton Wanderers will be hoping to record successive home victories following an impressive 3-1 defeat of Fulham on Tuesday night. But it certainly won't be easy as fifth placed Watford visit the Macron this afternoon.

Neil Lennon makes one change from the win over Fulham, with young Zach Clough coming in to replace Eidur Gudjohnsen. Wanderers look to have stuck with the 4-4-1-1 formation that worked so well in the second half on Tuesday, with man of the match debutant Saidy Janko retaining his right wing role.

The visitors boast a side with plenty of attacking prowess, including the dangerous strikeforce of Matej Vydra and Odion Ighalo who will pose a big test for the Wanderers defence. Interestingly, the Watford starting lineup features just one English player, Wigan's FA Cup winning hero Ben Watson.

Here are today's teams, let us know your thoughts and keep in touch with all the action from the Macron in the comments section below.
