I almost forget that Bolton play football these days

Well, well, well. We’re still going. Bolton Wanderers live to take on Birmingham City in the first game since Eddie Davies sold the club to the Sports Shield Group (subject to Football League approval). The first game will be a vital one for Lennon and the players to: A. Take advantage of the good feeling around the club. B. Saves their skins after an appalling season. We come off the back of a draw that felt like a loss against QPR, hopefully this will be the win we’re craving.

Team News:

Bolton Wanderers

No new news for Wanderers. Gary Madine is likely to start after 2 consecutive starts by Heskey who has a question mark over his hip. Ben Amos is a doubt after picking up a knock; the keeper very much at fault for the QPR equaliser.

Birmingham City

Nicolai Brock Madsen will miss the game after picking up an injury. James Vaughan returns.

One to watch

Clayton Donaldson

With Wheater still injured I worry about such a physical frontman against the inexperienced Holding and shite Dervite. Talent on the wings means we’ll see a lot of balls coming in to our box, will those two be able to cover him?

Prediction

I’m confident given recent form and events, but not that confident to give us a win. 2-2
