After a week of change at Bolton Wanderers it's time for the football to do the talking once more as the Whites make the journey south west to Bristol City.

Jimmy Phillips takes charge of his first match of his second spell as Bolton caretaker manager, and makes four changes to the side that lost at home to Preston last weekend. In come youngsters Kaiyne Woolery and Tom Walker, while David Wheater returns from injury at centre-back and Gary Madine comes back into the starting lineup up front. Zach Clough is dropped to the bench after missing a hatful of chances against Preston and Ipswich, and is joined there by young defender Niall Maher who could make his first-team debut if called upon.

Bristol look to be lining up in a 4-4-2 formation, with everyone's favourite deadline day character Peter Odemwingie likely to support veteran striker Aaron Wilbraham, now 36. Tubby winger Lee Tomlin, on loan from Bournemouth, will also be a major threat for the hosts.

Phillips will be hoping to end Wanderers' long wait for an away victory, which goes back nearly one year.

We'll bring you all the action from Ashton Gate in the comments section below, and feel free to get involved with your thoughts on all things Wanderers.
