Today marks the first home fixture since Dean Holdsworth's Sports Shield consortium began life as owners of Bolton, and they would have hoped for an easier chance of a first victory.
Wanderers are up against a Burnley side that sits second in the league and move to the top of the table with a victory today.
Wanderers 'welcome' back Emile Heskey this afternoon in a bizarre looking diamond formation that not only lacks width but is also bereft of any creativity. Liam Feeney is likely to start in behind Heskey and Zach Clough, with the ineffectual Mark Davies alongside Darren Pratley in midfield. This means Neil Lennon is unbelievably choosing to keep Wellington Silva on the bench, alongside Kaiyne Woolery. Seriously, what is the point?
There's also one change at the back for Wanderers as Derik Osede replaces the injured Dorian Dervite, while Gary Madine returns on the bench following his bust-up with Neil Lennon.
Burnley will line up in a 4-4-2 formation with the free-scoring Andre Gray - whose 18 goals mean he has scored three times more than any Bolton player - and Sam Vokes up front. A combative midfield duo of David Jones and Joey Barton is complimented by wide threat from George Boyd and Scott Arfield.
In short, we have absolutely no chance and if Burnely don't win 3-0 or 4-0 I will be shocked.
