First of all, let’s check the off-field news…
Still no takeover…
Bolton host Millwall tomorrow. The game will be on, although the players will still be playing without pay. Last week’s defeat felt like a big nail in the coffin, and a defeat against a team struggling themselves, dropping into the relegation mix, would be just a big an indicator of where we will be ending up next season.
It should also be pointed out that tomorrow marks the anniversary of the Burnden Park disaster, a tragic moment in the club’s history that we must never forget.

Jason Lowe, Craig Noone and David Wheater are all suspended for us. Millwall will be missing injured centre-back Murray Wallace, but tricky winger Ben Marshall is back after being unable to play against parent club Norwich last weekend.
Stats and facts
We drew the reverse fixture in November – conceding late to draw that game 1-1. Last season’s home game ended in a 2-0 defeat 11 months ago.
We’ve scored just 22 goals, which is the lowest total a second-tier side has scored in 35 games since Birmingham managed 20 in the 1988-89 season.
We have won one, drawn one, and lost eight of our last 10 games. Both sides have lost their last three games.
I feel too much has gone on this week for the players to have had the chance to shut it out. 1-0 to Millwall.
