Bolton Wanderers will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to League One with the visit of former player and assistant manager Phil Brown and his Southend side this afternoon.

Bolton have been bolstered by the addition of five new players on transfer deadline day.

Today sees two of the five make their debuts, with Keshi Anderson starting up front with Gary Madine and James Henry starting in midfield. It looks like a more traditional 4-4-2 with Josh Vela likely to play from a wider position. Three more of the new signings are named on the bench.

Southend also look like lining up in a 4-4-2, with Simon Cox leading the line and former Premier League player Anton Ferdinand at the back.
