The team news for Bolton’s latest championship fixture this weekend is in, we take a little look at this.

Bolton head to Elland Road to take on Leeds United on Saturday afternoon looking to build on last weekends impressive win over rivals Blackburn Rovers.

Darren Pratley and Stuart Holden would have missed the game anyway but Pratley will now miss the rest of the season as will Holden, probably. Holden will soon know just how serious his latest knee injury is, in fact he’ll know next week.

After a hamstring injury Jermaine Beckford can return and could face his former side, but will likely have to do this from the bench.

Matt Mills (knee) is still out but could next week.

Bolton have to go back almost 10-years for the last time they beat Leeds, and if they can replicate the 4-1 win on that occasion when the sides met in the premier league that would be more than acceptable!

Mr Ecky sends his best to the Vital Bolton community, he’s currently not well, he’ll be back as soon as possible and in the meantime, he’s got a staff writer to fill in for him.

If anyone has something to share in the meantime (this gives a genuine Bolton point of view from a Bolton fan!) feel free to fire an email through.

Please include your username so I can put that to it though.

  • Unacceptable I’m afraid. Clearly we should have had six. I bet someone somewhere still moans about Zat Knight.

  • The unbelievable turnaround continues, long may it last! Still of course too late for this season and a shame we didn’t do this two months ago, but I get the feeling we should make the most of this run while it lasts. After Derby lost today would fancy us for at least a point on Tuesday night!

  • I hope you’re right Gav. The highest placed side we’ve beaten this season is Blackburn who sit in 10th place. I do think we’re playing plenty well enough, it’s just a case of whether we continue to play as we have been doing the past three games or whether we get rabbit-in-headlights syndrome.
