Bolton play their first game since relegation tomorrow when they travel to Blackburn.

Easter is a time for resurrection and all that, so it would be nice, if probably unrealistic if we saw the first signs of it at Ewood Park. Probably not, though…

Team news

Sammy Ameobi and Craig Noone are once again rated as doubtful – as mentioned the other day I would like us to focus on players who will be or could be here next season. Blackburn have a dilemma in goal, David Raya had been replaced by Jayson Leutwiler, who apparently looked shaky on Good Friday.

Facts and stats

We played Blackburn on Easter Monday 16 years ago, that finished in a goalless draw. It was also goalless the last time we travelled to Ewood Park, back in August 2015.

We have conceded twice or more in eight of our last ten away games.

The last time we won away despite conceding first was in August 2016, when we beat AFC Wimbledon despite falling behind.

Prediction

Probably a defeat. 0-2
