Bolton Wanderers host Sheffield Wednesday in The Championship this evening, looking to record back-to-back victories after Saturday's win over Wolves.

Wanderers have only scored three times in their opening six league games this season, but the fact that two of those came at the weekend, coupled with the improved performance, shows signs of promise. And Lennon has stuck with the same eleven that beat Wolves, despite Neil Danns apparently suffering a concussion at the weekend.J

Wednesday spent fairly big - well, anything is big compared to Bolton's spending power - in the summer, bringing in 14 new players including the likes of former Bolton loanee Barry Bannan, Watford trio Fernando Forestieri, Lewis McGugan and Daniel Pudil, and Norwich defender Michael Turner. However, they haven't won since their opening day defeat of Bristol City. Wednesday are one point and two positions below Bolton in the league, sitting 19th on five points having scored 7 and conceded 10 goals in six games.

I genuinely have no idea how Wednesday will line up from their starting eleven, but Barry Bannan does start.
