Bolton Wanderers are back at the Macron Stadium today for their penultimate home match of the season. Today's visitors are second placed Norwich City, who will be hungry for all three points as they look to keep the pressure on league leaders Bournemouth.

Last week's two-goal hero Craig Davies is again sidelined after suffering a recurrence of his hamstring problems, so Adam Le Fondre returns to the Wanderers starting lineup. But the big news for Wanderers is the absence of captain Matt Mills, which means Dean Moxey comes into the side, and the welcome return of Mark Davies to the match day squad for the first time in five months from the bench.

I think we can expect Wanderers to stick with the 3-5-2 formation that worked well next week, with Josh Vela staying in midfield alongside Barry Bannan and Eidur Gudjohnsen and Emile Heskey both starting alongside Le Fondre.

The visitors' main danger is likely to be striker Cameron Jerome, who scored twice in the previous meeting at Carrow Road. While wide man Nathan Redmond will also be a real threat to Wanderers, who will need to work out who picks up the winger quicker than they did against Craig Noone in the Cardiff match.
