Mason missed the midweek 0-0 draw at Derby due to illness.

He was rated 50-50 as late as yesterday but starts today’s clash at the Reebok alongside Lukas Jutkiewicz.

Mason, who was interesting Albion as they searched for a striker in January, has scored once in each of the last three appearances of his loan stint from Cardiff.

His return is one four changes to the team which earned a good point at Derby.

Out go centre-back Zat Knight, widemen Neil Danns and Mark Davies and attacking midfielder Andre Moritz, They are replaced respectively by David Wheater, Liam Trotter, Chung-Yong Lee and Mason.

Wanderers are unbeaten in their last five games, including a 4-0 derby thrashing of Blackburn in their most recent home match.

They have not lost a game anywhere or conceded a home goal since Sam Vokes’ winner here for Burnley last month.

Bolton: Bogdan; Baptiste, Wheater, Ream, Hutton; Trotter, Spearing, Medo, Lee; Mason, Jutkiewicz. Subs: Lee-Barrett, Knight, Threlkeld, Vela, Mortiz, Danns, Hall.

4-4-2 so they will be coming at us, that's cool, better than them sitting back. Have to think that they will try and do a QPR, press us all over the park and hope to get one of their two strikers on the ball should we give away a misguided pass.
The pace of Lingard and Buckley could be a big factor today. Upson out and Dunk in, Dunk's recent performances gives me confidence.
