Bolton Wanderers travel to high flying Sheffield United in search of desperatly needed points.

United haven’t won in their last two, which is apparently a poor run of form. What exactly that makes our two wins in something like 23 league games I don’t know.

A United win could take them back into the automatic promotin places. Wanderers need to points to stay in touch with a decreasing number of sides who are within range.

Gary Madine could play for the home side and is looking for his first goal in a year. Knowing out luck he will play and brake that duck. If he doesn’t start United still have an embarrassment of riches to call on up top with Billy Shap and David McGoldrick likely to play a role.

Wanderers could offer a debut to Callum Connolly after he joined on loan from Everton on deadline day. Last minute hickups means that otherwise the Wanderers squad remains the same as before. That does mean that despite reported interest Luca Connell, Erhun Oztumer and Sammy Ameobi remain available. Ben Alnwick could return in goal and Phil Parkinson will be hoping for a cleaner bill of health at centre back.

March Odds

United win - 2/7

Draw - 21/5

Wanderers win - 12/1

#GetAPrice - United to win both halves, United over 2.5 goals and United to keep a clean sheet.

Match Prediction

I can only see a second comfortable United win of the season. 3-0 will be the scoreline again.
