More Changes Likely For Bolton Ahead of Birmingham Trip


Bolton start a run of four games against top half teams tomorrow when we travel down to Birmingham City.

It’s a team we beat back in August, but since then both teams’ seasons have progressed in contrasting styles. We are where we all know we are,while Garry Monk’s side are in the play-off hunt.

Team news

Mark Beevers could be ready to come back, but there is a problem at left-back, Jonathan Grounds is unable to play against his parent club, Andy Taylor has been injured, so Callum Connolly could play there. That in turn opens up midfield, especially after Luca Connell’s injury at the weekend.

Facts and stats

If Bolton won tomorrow night, firstly hell would freeze over, but secondly it would be the first league double over Birmingham since the 2009-10 season. Last season’s trip to St Andrew’s ended in a goalless draw, we haven’t won there since October 2014.

2014 was also the last time Bolton won away in the Championship on a Tuesday, when they beat Doncaster in April of that year.

If Bolton lose tomorrow, it will be their seventh consecutive away league defeat, their worst run since the end of the 2015-16 relegation season.


Birmingham are a bit hit and miss at home, but they’ll have more than enough for us, especially when we’ll be making a few changes again. 3-0 to them.
