Indeed, Bolton have a decent record against Cardiff having lost just once in the last seven league clashes between the two sides. However, the Bluebirds have an excellent home record this season having lost just twice on their own turf.
Wanderers make one change from the side that drew 0-0 with Charlton in mid-week, with Neil Danns coming in for the injured Mark Davies. The squad contains 10 youngsters that have come through the academy, including first time appearances on the first-team bench for 19-year-olds Jamie Thomas and Tyler Garratt. This means 96-year-old Emile Heskey starts a third game in a week - outrageous.
Cardiff look to be lining up in a 4-3-3 formation, with Anthony Pilkington and Craig Noone supporting debutant 21-year-old striker Kenneth Zohore from the wings. So Zohore is bound to score. Interestingly, Lex Immers - the bookies' favourite to open the scoring in today's game - isn't even named on the substitutes' bench.
