Bolton Wanderers are coming off of an away loss to Norwich City, and despite improved performances under new manager Neil Lennon, the boys from Lancashire are still in the relegation zone, and still struggling to get the results that will change that status.
Goal Difference: -12
Goal Difference: +3
A few players are still out injured, although Adam Bogdan is getting close to returning, and David Wheater may even be on the bench for this match. The immediate loss Bolton have to be concerned with though, involves two loan players. Kevin McNaughton has been solid at right back for Wanderers, and Joe Mason leads the club in scoring, thanks largely to a hat trick a while back. Both are on loan from Cardiff City, and ineligible to play in Tuesday night's encounter.
This is just my personal prediction, I don't have any inside info. That said, I think it is a good side. A side that could get three points, and lift the Whites out of the bottom three.
