Vital Quotes:

‘Bolton Wanderers has been my spiritual home in football, but now I have another spiritual home, here at Hull.`

Hull manager Phil Brown dismisses speculation linking him to the soon to be vacant job at Bolton, leaving Wanderers fans no choice but to resort to kidnapping. You`re coming back Phil, whether you want to or not.

Hull Team News:

Captain Ian Ashbee will return from suspension, but Anthony Gardner is sidelined with a thigh injury.

Player to watch: Stelios

The Greek garden gnome is still highly regarded by Bolton fans after a five year spell at the club. Almost certain to score, probably because he’s too small for Gary Cahill to notice.

Bolton Team News:

Kevin Nolan is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card. No mean feat in eleven games. Ricardo Vaz Te is out for the season and Joey O’Brien has a knee injury. It is thought that Johan Elmander and Mustapha Riga will be available for selection.

Player to watch: Ricardo Gardner

Bolton player of the season so far. Gary Megson will be desperately looking for a way not to pick him. Don’t eat anything that the Ginger One has prepared Ricky.

Match Facts & Stats

Bolton have won three times in the league at Hull, with the home side having seven victories.

Ref Watch:

Alan Wiley Coyote. Not the Acme of the refereeing world, but it could be worse.

Next Fixtures:

Liverpool (H)

The town is currently preparing for an invasion of whiny scousers.
