England will be hoping to avoid a third successive friendly defeat against Spain when the two sides meet at Wembley on Saturday evening.

Fabio Capello's side have failed to score in their last three fixtures against the world and European champions and a youthful side will face a tough challenge to end that run tomorrow night.

The England manager has promised to experiment with the younger members of his squad in the upcoming matches against Spain and Sweden but is likely to retain an experienced spine to the first XI on Saturday, with one eye on avoiding a painful humiliation.

Capello is considering pairing Aston Villa team-mates Darren Bent and Gabriel Agbonlahor in England's attack, as he searches for a replacement for Wayne Rooney who will be suspended for the start of Euro 2012.

Agbonlahor has caught Capello's eye after a fine start to the season - scoring five goals and providing four assists - and could be given another chance to impress in an England shirt on Saturday.

With Rooney and Bent the only strikers currently assured of a place in Capello's squad for next summer's European Championship in Ukraine and Poland, Agbonlahor is likely challenging Jermain Defoe, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck for one of the two remaining strikers' berths.

Capello's main decision is whether to start under-fire captain John Terry. The Italian had indicated he was prepared to rest the Chelsea defender with a look to testing other centre-backs in the squad.

However, with Phil Jagielka struggling to recover from a hairline fracture to his toe, Terry could be drafted in to provide some experience to the back-line. Manchester United's Phil Jones appears certain to start, most likely in central defence rather than midfield.

Frank Lampard is expected to get the nod in central midfield, with the Chelsea player likely to assume the captain's armband should Terry miss out.

England probable XI: Hart; Walker, Jones, Terry, Cole; Parker, Barry; Walcott, Lampard, Downing; Bent.
