Bolton resume their attempts to play football after the international break this weekend with something that, had it come later in the season, could be described as a six-pointer.

Wanderers dropped into the bottom three after losing to Swansea this time out and now they face a Millwall side who are above us in the table only on goal difference. Will this be the weekend we get a win? Will this be the weekend we score?

Team news

Gary O’Neil is available once again – Stephen Ireland is also back in full training but it at a minimum we will have to wait until next weekend to see him play for us. Ben Amos will not be allowed to play in goal for Millwall as he is on loan from us, Jordan Archer will probably step in, or David Martin, Welsh international Tom Bradshaw is a long-term casualty.

Facts and stats

Bolton have a decent record of late at the Den. They are unbeaten in four visits, winning two and drawing two. Their last defeat was in 2012, which cost Owen Coyle his job.

Last season’s game finished 1-1, with Filipe Morais levelling from a free-kick.

Bolton have just one point from their last five games, while Millwall have two wins and three defeats.

Prediction

They’ve been strong at home recently, can only see a defeat for us. 2-0 to them.

Next fixtures

Away to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday, which isn’t confusing at all. Next Saturday brings a home game against Wigan.
