Following the greatest win in footballing history, Bolton Wanderers are looking to secure their first successive wins since the beginning of time. In their way stand the boyz from the Hudd led by manager David Wagner. The Yorkshire side are themselves looking to build on their own positive result away at QPR in which they picked up a plucky 1-1 draw.

Despite the reprieve of only their second win of the season against the cave-dwelling Blackburn Rovers, Bolton still remain under serious pressure to get a result this weekend. Bolton can take some heart in the more positive home form, which is not as bad as you may think. Bolton have only lost two games at home all season.

Team News


Bolton Wanderers
Legends of the game Emile Heskey and Shola Ameobi are struggling with injury and both are unlikely to  return to the starting line-up against Huddersfield.  Despite transfer speculation surrounding numerous players, particularly Josh Vela, none (at the time of writing) have yet left and remain available for selection

Huddersfield Town
Football manager 'wonderkid' Phillip Billing is likely to return to the side after being named on the bench at the recent draw at QPR.
