Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship encounter between Crystal Palace and Bolton Wanderers at Selhurst Park.

Dougie Freedman will make his first return to former club Crystal Palace on Saturday when he takes his Bolton Wanderers side to Selhurst Park in the Championship.

The Trotters are currently on a winless run of four matches in all competitions, while a victory for fourth-placed Palace could see Ian Holloway's men move into the automatic promotion places.

Palace nicked a 1-0 victory when the two teams met at the Reebok Stadium back in September.

Adam Bogdan should be restored to the starting lineup for the hosts, while Marvin Sordell could feature after he scored twice in Tuesday's FA Cup third-round victory over Sunderland.

Meanwhile, the visitors are expected to recall a number of senior players following their midweek defeat at Stoke City in the FA Cup.

Recent form

Palace: LDWDLL

Bolton: LWLDWW

Possible lineups

Palace: Bogdan; Alonso, Ream, Knight, Ricketts; Eagles, Andrews, Spearing, Lee; Ngog, Sordell

Bolton: Speroni; Moxey, Delaney, Ramage, Parr; Bolasie, Jedinak, O'Keefe, Moritz; Zaha, Murray

Sports Mole says: 2-0
