Bolton Wanderers v Leeds United: Predictions

New, comment

The match is several hours away, but we know who Neil Lennon will pick to start, or at least whom he should pick to start...

Coming off their 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup, Bolton Wanderers have quite a lengthy injury list heading into this Saturday's league match against Leeds United.  Matt Mills missed out on that one, an dis still nursing a mild ankle problem, but Neil Lennon and everyone else around the club expect him to be able to play.

In addition to Mills, winger Rob Hall will be out a couple of weeks with a more serious ankle injury.  Of course, given the performance of Zach Clough last weekend, many may consider Hall surplus to requirements.  The long-term injury list still includes Marc Tierney, Joe Mason, Max Clayton, Mark Davies, and possibly Kevin McNaughton.  Craig Davies is available, but still not 100% after his hamstring trouble.  Medo Kamara is reportedly on trial at Maccabi Haifa in Israel.  Finally, Chung-Yong Lee is in Australia for the Asian Cup.

I suspect Neil Lennon will stay as close as possible to his favored selection, he is not a man who likes to ring in the changes.

I think that is a good team.  A little light on goalscoring, not to mention a bit overly dependent on the 19-year-old Clough for creativity.  That aside, I think Gudjohnsen gets his first goal of the season, and Heskey come off the bench to add a late goal of his own.  2-0 to Bolton.
