Bolton take on Wolves at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday in a game they have to win.
‘They`re a big side, with Knight, Ricketts, Elmander and Davies, they`ve got plenty of height, and they`re solid. With Steinsson at right-back and Robinson at left-back, they make a big, powerful team.`
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy almost gets his facts right. Angry dwarf Paul Robinson isn`t big, powerful or solid. Or any good.
Bolton Team News:
There are no new injury worries for Owen Coyle. So that just leaves the existing ones.
Kevin Davies is due to return after sitting out the match at Spurs, with Johan Elmander and Ivan Klasnic competing to be his strike partner.
Player to watch: Kevin Davies
A disappointing season so far for Davies, but when a captain’s performance has been needed in the past he’s always delivered.
Wolves Team News:
Mick McCarthy will probably start with the same team that lost to Chelsea, although Andy Keogh is available after making a sooner than anticipated return from injury
Player to watch: Kevin Doyle
Wolves’s record signing is always a danger. Note to Zat Knight: try to stay stood up.
