Collins, Bishop, Emmanuel, Quaner and Dozzell Start at Bolton
Saturday, 6th Apr 2019 14:24
James Collins, Teddy Bishop, Josh Emmanuel, Collin Quaner and Andre Dozzell all start as Paul Lambert makes five changes for the game at Bolton Wanderers.
James Bree, Trevoh Chalobah, Toto Nsiala and Kayden Jackson drop to the bench, while Jon Nolan misses out due to the achilles injury he suffered in the 2-0 home defeat to Hull City last weekend.
Will Keane made the trip but is not included in the 18, along with Jonas Knudsen.
Emmanuel makes his second start of the season at right-back with Collins alongside skipper Luke Chambers at centre-half.
In midfield, Dozzell and Bishop are either side of Cole Skuse in a midfield which could become familiar next season in League One.
Alan Judge, fresh from signing his new contract, and Gwion Edwards will be either side of lone central striker Quaner up front.
Bolton are unchanged from the team which won 2-1 at QPR last weekend with the players having returned to training on Thursday following a 48-hour walkout in solidarity with unpaid off-field staff.
The players remain unpaid, while there is no hospitality and although the IT problems overnight were rectified Wanderers’ email system wasn’t working ahead of the game.
Bolton: Matthews, Taylor, Beevers, Olkowski, Connolly, Wheater, Ameobi, Buckley, O’Neil, Williams, Magennis. Subs: Alnwick, Little, Oztumer, Donaldson, Noone, Wilson, Connell.
Town: Bialkowski, Emmanuel, Chambers (c), Collins, Kenlock, Skuse, Bishop, Dozzell, Edwards, Judge, Quaner. Subs: Gerken, Chalobah, Jackson, Downes, Nsiala, Bree, El Mizouni. Referee: Peter Bankes (Merseyside).

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
