Wanderers travel across the Pennines to take on Leeds

What year is it?! Old man Heskey starts again for Bolton at Leeds this afternoon

Bolton Wanderers' long search for an away victory continues this afternoon as they make the trip to Leeds United, more than a year since their last win on the road.

But Bolton's track record against Leeds doesn't bode well, having only won one of their last eight clashes with the Yorkshire side and only kept one clean sheet in the last 13 meetings between the two sides.

Bolton also haven't kept a clean sheet in their last ten league matches, while Leeds have only scored five goals in their last nine fixtures and only won one of their last 11.

Neil Lennon, in his infinite wisdom, again starts with Emile Heskey up front, naming the same eleven that started against Burnley last week. Bizarrely, Wellington Silva still remains on the bench along with Gary Madine, and is joined by the returning Liam Trotter. Stephen Dobbie somehow also remains on the bench.

Leeds appear to be lining up in a 4-3-3, with Mirco Antenucci and Mustapha Carayol - who always seems to score against Bolton - supporting Souleymane Doukara from the wide positions.
