Gordon Greer has been handed an instant recall to the Albion defence - but there is no Matt Upson at Bolton today.

Ever-present Upson has been ruled out of the game at the Reebok by illness.

Greer returns after serving a one-match ban.

He was replaced by Lewis Dunk for almost half last Saturday’s draw against Reading and then all of Tuesday’s win over QPR.

Dunk earned praise for his performances and now starts alongside Greer against a Wanderers side unbeaten in their last five outings.

Bolton-born Dale Stephens is also back in the side today.

Stephens, who grew up supporting Bolton in their Premier League days, replaces Keith Andrews in midfield.

Andrews, on loan from Bolton for the season, is not permitted to play against his parent club.

But Stephens would have a decent case for inclusion anyway after recovering from a foot injury.

Albion: Kuszczak; Bruno, Greer, Dunk, Ward; Ince, Stephens, Forster-Caskey; Buckley, Lingard, Ulloa. Subs: Brezovan, Calderon, Chicksen, David Lopez, Rodriguez, LuaLua, March.

Would be an excellent time for a first win at the Reebok. We would have some real momentum then.

Good positive line up and only enforced changes from the QPR match.
Bolton will attack so at least we can play our way, Lingard to get off the mark today and a 1-3 win for the Albion.

I like your optimism, 1-3 would be great, but maybe a win by the odd goal is a tad more realistic? I will be rooting for you to be right.
