Match Preview: Bolton Wanderers v Leicester City

Matthew Lewis

After an uninspiring 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic on Good Friday, Bolton Wanderers will be hoping to continue their impressive late season form, but title chasing Leicester City stand in their way

Leicester City come to the Reebok Stadium with promotion already firmly in the bag after an amazing season, which has seen them win 28 games thus far, and they'll be hoping to make that 29 on Tuesday, which would see them crowned as Champions.

Bolton, however, will be looking to put a dent in those celebrations and continue their impressive run of eight games unbeaten.

The Foxes have suffered a slight dip in form recently after earning promotion, seemingly not being able to reach the same intensity which they had previously played at, they fell 4-1 at home to Brighton and then drew 1-1 at Reading. They did, however, return to winning ways on Saturday, with a hard fought victory over QPR, thanks to top scorer David Nugent.

Leicester's second top goalscorer, Jamie Vardy, is a doubt with a groin injury that kept him out of the win on Saturday and left back/striker Jeff Schlupp will miss out with a knock he picked up against QPR.

Medo Kamara could return to the Bolton squad after illness kept him out of the Good Friday clash but Bolton will be without the Brazilian play maker André Moritz after he suffered a hamstring injury in training and there's a worry over Alan Hutton's fitness after he went off with a knock against Charlton. Apart from that, the usual suspects and Mark Davies, who's seemingly disappeared of the face of the Earth, it's looking rosy.

I would say I'd like to see some youngsters given a go, but I'm afraid I'd only be screaming into the void at this point. I'd also urge everyone to expect 4-5-1 tomorrow, which Dougie Freedman will no doubt play against the top of the league.

The last two games between the two clubs have conjured up thirteen goals, lets all hope for a similarly exciting game to liven up this fading season.
