Bolton travel to Newcastle hoping to build on last week’s victory against a desperately poor Stoke City.

Vital Quotes:

‘With the money I’ve got to spend I could probably bring in 10 players but they wouldn’t be the right ones. We want to bring two in, I’m hopeful of getting one, but if we don’t, we’ll just have to go with what we’ve got.’

Gary Megson explains Bolton’s transfer policy. Puzzled? It’s not just us then.

Newcastle United Team News:

Michael Owen and Mark Viduka are out, but Steven Taylor should return.

Player to watch: Jonas Gutierrez

Looked handy on his debut against Manchester United. His dive in the penalty area drew full marks for artistic impression.

Bolton Wanderers Team News:

Heidar Helguson is that rare thing. A player who’s injured more often than Michael Owen. This time it’s a hernia. Otherwise, Bolton have a clean bill of health.

Player to watch: Johan Elmander

Had an encouraging debut. How well he can lead the line away from home remains to be seen.

Match Facts & Stats

Bolton have a poor record in the league at Newcastle, winning twelve and losing 35 with six draws.

Ref Watch:

Steve ‘Gordon’ Bennett. The worst referee working at top level. Expect controversy.

Next Fixtures:

West Brom (H)

Fulham (A)
