Reading v Bolton Wanderers: Lineups and Thread

New, comments

Wanderers are down south today, and the long ride home will be a lot better if they are bringing three points with them.

Chris Brunskill

Win, lose or draw today, Bolton Wanderers have run out of excuses. Last Saturday's result didn't go the Trotter's way, but now it's time to start the climb up the table. They have not overcome their poor home form, but this is not a home match.  Jermaine Beckford is out injured, and Dougie Freedman has gone back to the 4-2-3-1 in response.  It's a chance for Wanderers to make a statement against a club fighting for a playoff spot.
