Senderos, who had been an unused substitute against Sunderland on Wednesday after arriving from Arsenal, was the only change to the Toffees starting line-up, with fellow defender Sylvain Distin missing out with an injury. Wigan captain Mario Melchiot had not recovered from a neck problem in time forthe game, so Emmerson Boyce came into the Latics defence with Titus Brambletaking the armband.

Derby 1 (Rob Hulse 78) Nottm Forest 0 14.45 Smalling starts for Fulham Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill named an unchanged side for today's Barclays Premier League clash at Fulham.

Fulham made three changes with Simon Davies starting his first match since early December as he continued his comeback from a foot injury. Defender Stephen Kelly and striker Erik Nevland were also drafted in followingthe 2-0 midweek loss to Tottenham. There was also a starting place for defender Chris Smalling, who agreed a summer switch to Manchester United this week. 14.40 Brown rings the changes for Wolves Stephen Hunt was one of just six Hull players to retain his place as Phil Brown rang the changes for today's crucial clash against Wolves. Brown had no doubts over the winger's state of mind for the key Barclays Premier League relegation fixture despite Wolves' persistent attempts to sign him during the current transfer window. Steven Mouyokolo came in for the injured Kamil Zayatte in defence while Nick Barmby, Geovanni, Craig Fagan and Richard Garcia were all left on the bench at the KC Stadium. Youngster Tom Cairney was handed a first league start while Jozy Altidore and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink were paired up front as Hull reverted to 4-4-2. Wolves, just one point above Hull at the foot of the table, made one changewith David Jones replacing Nenad Milijas. 14.35 Gardner on the bench for Birmingham Birmingham's new signing Craig Gardner had to be content with a place on the bench for the home Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham. Blues boss Alex McLeish named an unchanged line-up for the 11th successive league match despite the midweek 3-0 setback at Chelsea. Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp also kept faith with the side which overcame Fulham 2-0 at White Hart Lane on Tuesday. Striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, who is attracting the interest of Birmingham, wasagain ruled out with a groin problem sustained in training after the FA Cup tiewith Leeds. 14.25 Aquilani and Ngog back for Liverpool Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez opted for a more attacking line-up against Bolton at Anfield as he restored Alberto Aquilani and David Ngog to the team. The pair were on the bench for the goalless midweek draw against Wolves but were brought in at the expense of Maxi Rodriguez and Lucas Leiva. It meant Dirk Kuyt returned to his role wide on the right to allow Ngog to play up front with Aquilani slotting in alongside Javier Mascherano. Bolton made just one change from Tuesday's midweek victory over Burnley with midfielder Mark Davies replacing striker Ivan Klasnic. On-loan Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was named among the substitutes having made his temporary switch from the Gunners this week. 14.23 Cole on the bench for West Ham West Ham named an unchanged XI for this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash with Blackburn. Gianfranco Zola kept faith with the team which drew 1-1 at Portsmouth, as fit-again England striker Carlton Cole again started on the bench while Scott Parker and Herita Ilunga were also both among the substitutes. Blackburn had Christopher Samba back from suspension, but David Dunn missed out because of a calf problem. New signing Yildiray Basturk was not yet match fit.
