Bolton Match Zone

Can Bolton Do The Double Over Cheltenham?


Bolton Wanderers are back at home tomorrow as they take on Cheltenham Town. 

After tomorrow’s match is played we’ll be at the half-way point of our season, we won’t go any lower than where we are now (17th) but we could theoretically climb into the top half, although not in practice.

Team news

There don’t seem to be any new injuries, and the two players who had COVID are now clear. Arthur Gnahoua could land himself a starting place after his goal and all-round impact off the bench at Exeter on Tuesday night.


Ryan Delaney’s injury time header sealed all three points down in Cheltenham a month ago, but this will be the first time ever we host them.

The opposition

Cheltenham were, and probably still are in the promotion mix given they’re sixth, tipped pre-season to be there or thereabouts, but that loss to us seemed to trigger a bit of a barren run. They’ve won none of their last five. Ian Evatt has again mentioned the physicality and long throws they’ll offer. One hope is Cheltenham will have half an eye on next weekend when they host Man City in the FA Cup.


This sounds mad given how we’re almost a charity case when it comes to playing out of form sides (Port Vale anyone?) but hopefully we can at least take a point. 1-1
