Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm GMT. Live coverage of the game will be available on BBC One and BBC One HD. Live Radio commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5Live.


Bolton Wanderers welcome Liverpool to the Macron Stadium in a clash that offers both teams a second chance to qualify for the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The first leg at Anfield ended goalless, but it was Liverpool, who had the better chances with the visitors' goalkeeper pulling off some mighty saves to deny the hosts.

Newil Lennon's men have not fared well in the Championship following that game and come into today's clash on the back of a 2-2 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers, which was preceded by a heavy defeat to Rotherham United.

Moreover, the manager is without goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, who has been ruled out for six weeks with an injury. Ben Amos, who was loaned from Manchester United could get a run out in his place.

Meanwhile, Liverpool come into this game on the back of a seven match unbeaten streak and from recent performances, it looks like their attacking flow is back, with Raheem Sterling, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho running the show in their impressive 2-0 win over West Ham United on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers has also been boosted by the return of Daniel Sturridge, who was out with injury for the last five months. Bolton fans will be familiar with his skills as he spent half a season on loan at the Macron Stadium before his move to the Merseyside club.

The Northern Irishman will be keen to make up for the disappointment of not making the final of the Capital One Cup and go on a good FA Cup run.

What Managers Say

Neil Lennon: "We can do work today [Tuesday] and then we can do a little bit on the day of the game, get the players out of the hotel and maybe work on a few set pieces. We will study totally on how Liverpool went at the weekend and look at how they played. You can't second guess Brendan [Rodgers] though as he has such a good squad."

Brendan Rodgers: "Our best football is yet to come. We had a really difficult start to the season and we needed to find a way to get back to our identity again. We have got that and our best football is ahead of us. We want to take that into the games and get to cup finals."
