Bolton’s Options Should Give Them A Boost Against Stevenage


Bolton have another home game tomorrow as they host Stevenage, with the chance to do the double over a team for the first time this season.

Wanderers beat Boro in November, in that little run we had in November where it looked as if we’d be getting our act together. That never really happened in the end, but there is hope we can climb the table still, and the prospect of having more options from the off tomorrow should give us something to look forward to.

Team news

Kieran Lee and whoever had COVID will be available for tomorrow’s match, as is Marcus Maddison after his red card was overturned. Dapo Afolayan impressed off the bench in Tuesday’s match against Morecambe, which raises the question of whether he is involved from the start tomorrow. Harry Brockbank, however, is unavailable after he came off injured the other night, Gethin Jones will probably start at right back. Arthur Gnahoua dislocated his elbow but it popped back in. Still sounds painful…


We won this season’s reverse fixture 2-1, but this will be our first ever home game against Stevenage.

The opposition

Stevenage are two places and three points below us in the league, and sit six points above the bottom two. Worryingly, their recent form is okay, including a win at Tranmere last weekend which shouldn’t be taken lightly.


With a few players seemingly back I think it’s fair to be quietly confident. Given the way the table is, it’s not a game to lose. 2-1 to Bolton.
