Leeds United vs Bolton Wanderers

Elland Road

Saturday 5th March

KO: 15:00

Saturday will mark 334 days since Bolton last won away from home, when the Whites beat Cardiff City 3-0 on 6th April 2015. This week, they face a trip to Leeds United, who sit in 18th place in the table. Without a win in five, and after a 4-0 mauling at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday, the pressure is on Steve Evans and the Leeds team to get a result against the Trotters.

The fixture also comes nearly two years to the day since Bolton romped Leeds 5-1 at Elland Road in the 2013/2014 season, with goals from Joe Mason, Lukas Jutkiewicz, Zat Knight, Mark Davies and Andre Moritz.

Bolton's fan following will be small due to the eye watering cost of tickets. Fans travelling across to Yorkshire are expected to pay up to £42 for a match ticket, which is absolutely ludicrous.
