BREWERS manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink may ring the changes for tonight's Capital One Cup clash at Bolton.

After Saturday's 2-1 debut home win in League One, the Albion boss said that he may freshen things up for the cup tie and that's the benefit of having a strong squad.

He said: "We need to have plenty of options because we are playing Bolton and we have to have fresh legs. We need that quality in the squad. We have to focus on the next game and the next game is Bolton. After Scunthorpe  we move onto to that game, watch a DVD of them playing and move on from there."

Hasselbaink will be without winger Zeli Ismail, because of a knee injury.

The manager confirmed that the injury that kept him out of the Scunthorpe game will also rule him out at the Macron Stadium.

However, Jerome Binnom-Williams coming off the bench to impress on the left wing on Saturday may give the Brewers attacking options.

He said: "He looked good. He's not 100 per cent fit yet. But he's got a bright future ahead. He's a young boy with a lot of power who is also very quick."

Overall the manager is pleased with where his squad is in terms of fitness after the first game.

"You are never going to be 100 per cent match fit at the first game of the season. It will take a little bit of time but we will get stronger, that's the way we work" he said.
