Fresh from their first point of the season at Millwall over the weekend, Bolton Wanderers will be hoping for their first league victory of the campaign at Birmingham City.

Wanderers have good memories of St Andrews, but have lost their last eight encounters with Blues boss Harry Redknapp.

Phil Parkinson makes two changes for tonight’s game with Adam Armstrong coming in for Adam Le Fondre to partner Gary Madine, and Filipe Morais replacing Mark Little at right wing-back. Which means 3-5-2 remains for this evening.

The hosts have two former Bolton men in their match-day squad, with club captain Paul Robinson taking his place on the bench alongside Lukas Jutkiewicz. Redknapp looks to be going 4-3-3, with Clayton Donaldson leading the line and wideman Jacques Maghoma likely to be a major threat.
