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.
