Bolton Wanderers continue their survival battle as they go in search of a much-needed victory up against Queens Park Rangers at the Macron Stadium this afternoon.

Having enjoyed a three-game unbeaten spell, Wanderers suffered the familiar feeling of an away defeat at Brighton - who are losing 4-1 to Cardiff today - last weekend. That defeat leaves Bolton seven points from safety, so a win today is vital if they are to have any hope of surviving this season.

Today's visitors have only won two of their last 12 matches, so you'd expect a draw to be on the cards this afternoon.

Wanderers make two changes to the side that started at Brighton, with Zach Clough coming back into the starting line-up in place of Wellington Silva and Dean Moxey coming in for Derik Osede. That means Liam Feeney and Mark Davies, who were both dreadful last weekend, both start and you'd expect both to be in wide midfield roles.

QPR also look to be lining up in a 4-4-2 formation, with January signing from Peterborough United Conor Washington starting up front alongside that horrible man Jamie Mackie. Matt Phillips will be a danger out wide as will Australian midfielder Massimo Luongo, while Tjaronn Chery - who was excellent in QPR's 4-3 victory over Bolton at Loftus Road - is only on the bench.

Today's starting line-ups are below. We'll bring you all the action from the Macron in the Comments section below. Let us know your thoughts on today's game and all things Wanderers related.
