Wanderers face The Cottagers at The Macron

Following on from last week’s 1-0 win against Bristol City, Bolton Wanderers are back at The Macron to face in-form Fulham FC.

The two sides drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage back in October, after Fulham grabbed an equaliser with the last kick of the game.

Fulham, who have risen up into the play-off places due to a run of five successive wins, have a pretty decent at The Macron.

The Cottagers have lost just once in their last seven visits, and have also kept seven clean sheets against Wanderers in their last ten meetings in all competitions.

But, Wanderers have only lost once at home since September.

Fulham’s last visit to The Macron was a 2-2 draw back in December 2015, when a Zach Clough brace was cancelled out by a late equaliser from Ross McCormack.

A win for Wanderers today could see them go six points clear of the relegation places.

Team News

Wanderers will probably be without Reece Burke and Aaron Wilbraham, whilst Darren Pratley and Will Buckley will definitely be missing.

Fulham captain Tom Cairney is in contention to play after missing the last two games through injury.
