Wanderers Face Dale This Evening

Last updated : 12 January 2005 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers reserves will be hoping to progress to the final of the Lancashire Senior Cup this evening as they take on neighbours Rochdale in the Semi Final stage at the County Ground.

Wanderers reserve boss Neil McDonald once again calls upon the services of experienced duo Florent Laville and Khalilou Fadiga as he looks to build on Monday night's 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

McDonald will however be without the services of the injured Andy Oakes after he went off at half time against the Albion so Bolton-born Chris Howarth gets the nod ahead of Sam Ashton between the sticks.

Centre half Danny Livesey is still out on loan with Carlisle United and will therefore be unavailable for selection in this game.

Rochdale coach Keith Hill, a Bolton lad himself, will be hoping that his team can remain fresh for this game despite the fact that their game with Carlisle United on Monday was postponed due to bad weather conditions.

BOLTON RESERVES: Chris Howarth, Rhys Powell, Bradley Hill, Florent Laville, Charlie Comyn-Platt, Dale Whitehead, Blessing Kaku, Khaliliou Fadiga, Bedi Buval, Ricky Shakes, Jaroslaw Fojut
