Bolton Wanderers v Charlton Athletic: LIVE

Wanderers host Charlton in a dead rubber at the Macron, but can the hosts give old boy Chris Eagles a hiding to remember?

Bolton Wanderers play their penultimate home match of the season as they host Charlton Athletic this evening. Wanderers will be hoping to send off their supporters on a happy note for the summer, with a positive result against the South Londoners.

Neil Lennon makes three changes to the side that lost in the last minute against Norwich at the weekend, with Matt Mills, Rochinha and Neil Danns all returning to the starting lineup. Rochinha starts in behind lone striker Adam Le Fondre, and I'd expect a return to 4-4-2 with Josh Vela returning to his right full-back role. But you never can tell with Neil Lennon's team selections of late.

The visitors have two former Whites in their ranks, but both Chris Eagles and Tal Ben Haim start the game on the substitutes bench. And we can expect them to also line up in a 4-4-2 formation, with plenty of goals a possibility from the midfield positions in particular - especially from right winger Johann Burg Gudmondsson, who has 11 goals this season.

Wanderers largely dominated the first game between the two sides at the Valley earlier this season but struggled in front of goal, so can they fair better this evening?
