Reebok Bolton

Here is how Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday will line-up for this afternoon’s match at the Reebok Stadium...

Bolton Wanderers starting XI: Lonergan; Dervite, Mills, Ream, Moxey; Spearing, Garvan; Chung-Yong, M Davies, Feeney; Mason

Subs: Fitzsimons, Hughes, Pratley, Medo, Danns, Beckford, C Davies

Sheffield Wednesday starting XI: Westwood; Palmer; Lees, Zayatte, Mattock; Maguire, Coke, Semedo, Maghoma; May, Nuhiu

Subs: Kirkland, Buxton, Drenthe, McCabe, Helan, Madine, Dielna

The pressure is on Bolton boss Dougie Freedman today as his side welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Reebok Stadium this afternoon.

Wanderers have picked up just one point from their first five Championship games this season, piling the pressure on manager Freedman. The former Crystal Palace manager needs a win today to relieve some of the tension at the Reebok Stadium, with some fans believing that a defeat today could spell the end of the Scot's reign in charge of the Trotters.

Bolton hand a debut to new loan signing Owen Garvan after the midfielder joined on loan from Crystal Palace this week, and whilst striker Craig Davies claimed the club's player of the month award, the Welshman is on the bench with Joe Mason leading the line on his own.

Freedman's men face a tough task as well in search of that elusive win. Stuart Gray's Sheffield Wednesday have made an impressive start to the season picking up eight points from their first five games, but defeat to Nottingham Forest last time out means they will be looking to bounce back with a win today.

Dangerous strike duo Atdhe Nuhiu and Stevie May continue their burgeoning partnership up front, whilst former Hull defender Kamil Zayatte is in the side in the absence of Glenn Loovens.
