Bolton are back in action after the international break tomorrow when they travel to London to face Millwall. Here, we’ll have a quick look at our next opponents.
Their season so far
After a brilliant second half of last season, Millwall have been brought back down to earth this time around. They were set for an opening day win over Middlesbrough until they conceded two late goals and have struggled ever since. Their season has had a bit more of an even keel than ours, but they have the same number of points as us, only remaining above the bottom three on goal difference.
There doesn’t seem to be any pressure on Neil Harris, who is the longest serving boss in the Championship. He came in during the 2014-15 season, replacing Ian Holloway. They couldn’t stay up that season, but they went back up two seasons later via the playoffs, and had a good go at nearly making the Championship playoffs in their first season back in the second tier.
Players to watch
Midfielder Shaun Williams and striker Lee Gregory could have good games. Jake Cooper has a very respectable six assists for a centre back as well. There’ll be a change in goal, as Ben Amos can’t play against us. Expect Scottish youngster Jordan Archer, last season’s number one, to be between the sticks.
