Bolton Wanderers

Last updated: Tue 22 January 2019 10:41
In Brief

Bolton unfortunate at Bristol City. Gary O'Neil and Yanic Wildschut injured. Joe Williams doubtful. Could have problems in goal with Ben Alnwick a doubt. Remi Matthews now signed.

Looking Back

Lost 2-1 at Bristol City last week where they conceded twice in two minutes having led 1-0.

Have still won twice in last five games which is a slight improvement and gives them something to work with.

Appear to have reached some ground on off the field matters and have finally completed the permanent signing of Norwich keeper Remi Mattthews.

Looking Ahead

Yanic Wildschut has now been ruled out until April while Gary O'Neil is also missing.

Joe Williams picked up a knock last week so is rated a doubt for this game too.

Ben Alnwick is a doubt so the signing of Matthews could be rather timely.

Points of Interest

Woeful home record with just three wins, three draws and seven losses this term.

West Bromwich Albion

In Brief

Baggies denied at home to Norwich. Jake Livermore suspended. James Morrison and Matty Phillips doubtful.

Looking Back

Could only draw 1-1 at home to Norwich last week, conceding late after winning for much of the match.

Form inconsistent recently too and now likely to need a January signing or two following huge loss of Harvey Barnes who returned to Leicester.

Looking Ahead

Again without Jake Livermore due to suspension. That could mean Rakeem Harper again starts in midfield.

James Morrison and Matty Phillips both missed the Norwich game and are again considered doubts.

Points of Interest

Have six wins, three draws and four losses away this season. Suffered surprise 2-1 opening day defeat to Bolton at the Hawthorns.
