Bolton Wanderers travel to Sheffield Wednesday looking to end a run of eight without a win. The home side have not won in their last six games and will be looking to turn that around at Hillsborough.

Wednesday’s recent form has left them just three points ahead of Bolton, making this an early season relegation six pointer.

Team news

Wanderers lost Will Buckley and Josh Magennis to injury during the game at the New Den, and will have to assess their fitness. Stephen Ireland is apparently still alive and looking to build up his fitness.

Wednesday have a long list of absentees with Sam Winnall, Kieran Lee, Gary Hooper and Joost van Aken defiantly not fit to start. It is hoped that Steven Fletcher will return from an injury which ruled him out of the weekends game.

Match odds

Wednesday win - 10/11

Draw - 23/10

Wanderers win - 3/1

#GetAPrice - A goal in both halves and the match to be a draw - 6/1

Match prediction

I’m going to say both teams winless runs will stretch on, 1-1.
