Shola Ameobi has been handed his first Bolton Wanderers start for this evening's Lancashire derby with Preston North End.

For the hosts, Simon Grayson has brought Joe Garner back in attack for Jordan Hugill in the only change to the starting XI.

Preston North End: Pickford; Woods, Wright, Cunningham, Vermijl; Browne, Johnson, Gallagher, Reach; Garner, Doyle
Subs: Kirkland, Huntington, Kilkenny, Keane, Welsh, May, Hugill

Bolton Wanderers: Amos; Osede, Wheater, Dervite, Casado, Vela; Spearing, Pratley, Feeney, Clayton; Ameobi
