Swansea City v. Bolton Wanderers

Match day is upon us once again and this time around, Bolton Wanderers will travel to the Liberty Stadium to face a Swansea City side that sit on nine points and in 15th place. The Trotters will have their work cut out for theme as these Swans have turned the Liberty into a fortress. In four home games this season, Swansea are undefeated and have allowed a grand total of zero goals. 

Bolton, who were held scoreless against Sunderland, must find a way into the back of the net against the strong back four of Angel Rangel, Garry Monk, Ashley Williams, and Neil Taylor. Goalkeeper Michel Vorm has made 38 saves so far this season while allowing 14 goals, 10 less than Jussi Jaaskelainen and Adam Bogdan combined. Danny Graham will look to continue his superb run of form that saw him score three goals in Swansea's last three matches.

Meanwhile, Bolton's injury crisis continues as Dedryck Boyata (who picked up a knock against Sunderland) will be out for six weeks with an ankle injury. This means that Gretar Steinsson, who was completely worked against Arsenal in the Carling Cup, will make his return to the first team. Owen Coyle should look to include a few squad members that played well against Arsenal midweek and it would be a welcome sight to see Gael Kakuta, Fabrice Muamba, and Tuncay get some minutes. 

Bolton have just six points on the season (all of which came away from home) and desperately need three more against Swansea. The team will be bringing their 12th man with them as well over 1,000 fans will take advantage of the club's free travel offer to cheer on the lads.
