Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt has made four changes for this evening's clash against Salford City. The Trotters take on the Ammies for the first ever meeting between the two sides this evening in the League Two encounter at the University of Bolton Stadium. It will pit 10th against 20th in the fourth tier of English football and is being shown live on Sky Sports. Wanderers were last in action against Crewe Alexandra in the FA Cup where Evatt made just one change. Liam Gordon came in for the injured Harry Brockbank at left-wing back, with the Wanderers academy product poised to be out with a hamstring problem until Christmas.

One of the biggest decisions has been the dropping of young goalkeeper Billy Crellin who up until now had played every minute of Evatt's reign as boss. But after several notable errors which have led to goals recently, he has been replaced in favour of the experienced Matt Gilks, who comes in for his Wanderers debut. The defence lines up with Alex Baptiste, Ricardo Almeida Santos and Ryan Delaney as the established back three, with Peter Kioso and the returning Gethin Jones the wing backs. In central midfield will be skipper Antoni Sarcevic who had been 50/50 for today's game, and alongside him will be Andrew Tutte who starts in place of Tom White, with Ali Crawford playing the more advanced midfield role. And alongside Nathan Delfouneso returns Eoin Doyle to the Wanderers team where he will play against his former boss Richie Wellens, with the duo working together last season at Swindon Town. On the bench this evening for Bolton are Crellin, Gordon, Jak Hickman, White, Ronan Darcy, Shaun Miller and Lloyd Isgrove.
