Bolton Wanderers face their only away Lancashire derby of the season as they make the short trip to Preston North End this evening.

The Sky Sports cameras are in town for the clash, which I distinctly remember being a dreary 0-0 last time they decided to do so a couple of years ago - so let’s hope for something more entertaining for the millions of people glued to their televisions all over the world.

Phil Parkinson names an unnamed side from the one that defeated Norwich City two weeks ago, with Gary Madine free from his shake with the law to start up front.

On paper, there’s nothing too scary about the Preston side, whose starting strikers of Tom Barkhuizen and Callum Robinson have just three goals between them this season. But they do have a threat from the bench in Manchester United loanee Josh Harrop and winger Daniel Johnson. Preston have lost their last four matches and without a win in six since 26th September - so this is a great chance for a first Championship away win in a long, long time.

Here are tonight’s starting lineups. You can follow all the action in the Comments section below, and let us know your thoughts on all things Wanderers related.
