Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship clash between Hull City and Bolton Wanderers at the KC Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers travel to the KC Stadium on Saturday as both teams look to kickstart their Championship campaigns.

Jay Spearing could make his Trotters debut following his season-long loan from Liverpool, while Joshua Vela (knee) and Benik Afobe (rib) face late fitness tests.

The home side could also feature a new face in Ahmed Elmohamady, who has signed on loan from Sunderland.

Tom Cairney is a doubt for the Tigers after picking up a knee injury in their 3-2 League Cup defeat to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday.

Liam Rosenior and Robert Koren have both shaken off injury problems and will be vying for a place in the starting lineup.

Current form:

Hull: WLD
Bolton: LWD

Possible lineups:

Hull: Amos; Chester, Bruce, Faye, Rosenior; McKenna, Koren, Evans, Elmohamady; Aluko, Proschwitz

Bolton Bogdan; Mears, Mills, Knight, Ricketts; Lee, Spearing, M. Davies, Eagles; K Davies, Sordell

Sports Mole says: 1-2
