Bolton Wanderers face the thankless task of welcoming non-league Eastleigh to the Macron tonight. Everyone wants us to lose, Eastleigh reckon they're going to win, and even some Bolton fans think we will lose.

Eastleigh are fifth in the Conference National, having lost just once in their last ten league games - drawing the last two and winning the previous three - and only lost six times all season. Bolton, on the other hand, have only won two games all season, including losing their last three league games.

Bolton name a wholly predictable starting 11, as Lennon decides not to opt for the pace and unknown in Kaiyne Woolery and sticks with the same lot that have lost near enough every match this season. The creative duo of Darren Pratley and Liam Trotter remain in midfield, while Mark Davies will likely fill in on the right with Wellington Silva on the left and Liam Feeney somewhere in and around Gary Madine. Or something like that... who knows.

For some unbeknown reason Wanderers also have Shola Ameobi and Stephen Dobbie on the bench... Why why why why why why why why???

Eastleigh begin with the same 11 that finished the first tie, with Kaid Mohamed in for the injured Yemi Odubade.
