Bolton are off to Norwich tomorrow as they try and put the latest off-field rubbish behind them.

It’s the hardest game they could ask for on paper, as the Canaries sit top of the Championship and look virtually unbeatable at the moment.

Team news

Bolton will be without Yanic Wildschut and Remi Matthews, who are on loan from our opponents. Will Buckley should be fine despite some sort of groin problem. Moritz Leitner will be missing from Norwich’s midfield, but Onel Hernandez will be available following a hamstring problem.

Norwich player to watch – Teemu Pukki

Now ahead of Jordan Rhodes as Norwich’s preferred lone striker, the Finn has scored a number of vital goals for them this season, and will likely get opportunities tomorrow as well. He has netted six in his last five league games.

Facts and stats

Bolton haven’t won a league game at Carrow Road since 2000, playing four times since. Last season’s visit ended in a goalless draw. We took four points off them last season, after a 2-1 home win last November.

We sit bottom of the Championship’s goalscoring charts and second bottom of the shots on target charts. Only Ipswich have had fewer.

Failure to win would make it 11 matches without a victory.

Prediction

Off-field nonsense + strong opponent = defeat. Hopefully the players will have a more comfortable journey than the one they had back from Millwall. 2-0 to them.
