Line-ups: SPAL v Bologna

Bologna are forced into changes by suspensions as they visit Andrea Petagna’s SPAL fresh from victory over Atalanta.

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, you'll be able to follow all the action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

This is the Emilia-Romagna Derby, as the two cities of Ferrara and Bologna border each other.

SPAL clambered off the foot of the table with a surprise win away to Atalanta and intend to build on that momentum, with only the usual Mohamed Fares and Marco D’Alessandro out of action.

Bryan Dabo has made a big difference since his arrival from Fiorentina in the January transfer window, with Federico Di Francesco supporting hitman Andrea Petagna.

Bologna are forced into quite a few changes, as Mattia Bani and Nicola Sansone are both suspended, with Gary Medel, Mitchell Dijks, Stefano Denswil and Ladislav Krejci injured.

It means Nehuen Paz steps into defence, with Jerdy Schouten chosen to fill the gap in midfield alongside Andrea Poli.

Musa Barrow is still only on the bench after his transfer from Atalanta, as Federico Santander leads the attack.

SPAL: Berisha; Cionek, Vicari, Igor; Strefezza, Dabo, Missiroli, Valoti, Reca; Di Francesco, Petagna

Bologna: Skorupski; Tomiyasu, Danilo, Paz, Mbaye; Poli, Schouten, Soriano; Orsolini, Santander, Palacio
