Confirmed: Bolton Wanderers v Leeds United line-ups; Wood starts, Botaka misses out

Here is how Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United will line up this afternoon.

Bolton Wanderers starting XI: Amos; Derik, Prince, Wheater, Casado; Vela, Pratley, Danns, Davies, Feeney; Madine.

Bolton Wanderers substitutes: Rachubka, Dervite, Clayton, Dobbie, Twardzik, Walker, Ameobi.

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri; Byram, Cooper, Bamba, Berardi; Dallas, Adeyemi, Murphy, Cook; Antenucci, Wood.

Leeds United substitutes: Horton, Bellusci, Wootton, Phillips, Mowatt, Buckley, Doukara.

Steve Evans takes charge of Leeds for the second time as his side travel to face Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium this afternoon.

Evans, who was appointed as Leeds boss earlier this week, opened his reign with a 1-1 draw away at Fulham, and will now be looking for that first win today.

Evans has intriguingly picked the exact same team which started against Fulham, meaning there are no changes to the starting line-up at all, with Chris Wood passing a late fitness test to play.

However, winger Jordan Botaka is unavailable having been taken ill overnight, meaning Souleymane Doukara is handed a place on the bench.

For Bolton, manager Neil Lennon has handed new signing Shola Ameobi a place on the bench, with experienced players such as David Wheater, Darren Pratley, Neil Danns and Mark Davies also starting, whilst ex-Leeds goalkeeper Paul Rachubka is on the bench.
