Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Wanderers fans! After their fantastic 1-0 win away at Sheffield United on Saturday, Bolton Wanderers return to action just two days later against Nigel Adkin’s Hull City.

The Tigers have struggled to adapt to life back in The Championship, sitting in 19th place in the league, just two points above Wanderers. Hull have only won once in their last five games under new manager Nigel Adkins.

Wanderers have not lost to Hull in their last twenty home games. The Tigers' only away win against Wanderers came in March 1935 - 2-1 at Burnden Park.

A win for Bolton could see them go as high as 19th in the table, amazing.

Team News

Craig Noone, Sammy Ameobi and Andrew Taylor could all return, whilst Mark Little and Josh Vela could be in to return to the starting line-up.

Hull will be without Kamil Grosicki, who is struggling with an ankle injury. Jon Toral remains doubtful, but Jarrod Bowen an Fraizer Campbell will likely take part.

Form

Bolton Wanderers - WLLWLW

Hull City - DWLLDD

Odds

Hull are just favourites for the win with odds of 6/4. Wanderers come in at 7/4, whilst a draw is 12/5.

Match Prediction

With Wanderers full of confidence, I’m hoping for a decent result today. I’ll say 1-1.
