Wickham starts as Cattermole returns to Sunderland squad
CONNOR Wickham will lead the line tonight as Sunderland look to see off Bolton Wanderers in an FA Cup third-round replay.
Wickham, whose promotion from the bench sparked a Black Cats revival in the original tie at the Reebok Stadium, replaces the injured Steven Fletcher in Martin O'Neill's starting line-up.
O'Neill has made three changes to the side that beat West Ham on Saturday, with Phil Bardsley and Matt Kilgallon also starting.
Bardsley lines up at right-back, with Craig Gardner pushing into midfield to replace Seb Larsson. Kilgallon plays alongside Titus Bramble in place of the injured John O'Shea.
Lee Cattermole is a surprise inclusion on the substitutes' bench, with the midfielder having completed his recovery from a knee ligament injury two weeks ahead of schedule.
SUNDERLAND (4-4-1-1): Mignolet; Bardsley, Kilgallon, Bramble, Colback; Johnson, Gardner, Vaughan, McClean; Sessegnon; Wickham.
Subs: Westwood (gk), Cattermole, Larsson, McFadden, Saha, Campbell.
BOLTON (4-5-1): Lonergan; Mears, Knight, Ricketts, Alonso; Vela, Pratley, Spearing, Afobe, Eagles; Sordell.
Subs: Bogdan (gk), Ream, Odelusi, Holden, Lee, Ngog, Davies.
