Bolton Wanderers go in search of a fifth straight home victory this afternoon as Millwall come to the Macron Stadium, just one month on from Wanderers winning the reverse fixture in south London.

Jay Spearing makes a welcome return to the starting lineup following a spell out through injury, and that is much needed given last week's shocker at Peterborough. But David Wheater is a surprise absence - presumably through injury - and he's replaced at centre-back by Derik Osede. Uh-oh. Liam Trotter somehow retains his place in midfield alongside Spearing, and Ben Alnwick comes in for his first league start for Bolton following Mark Howard's injury.

Millwall hand only a second league appearance to 21-year-old 6ft 5in forward Harry Smith, who will play up front alongside Lee Gregory. Smith scored twice on his debut in an EFL Trophy game against Luton Town and then scored on his league debut against Bristol Rovers last weekend.
