A Return to the Tundra
Stadium of Light
29th November 2008
After last weeks victory over Middlesbrough, Bolton return to the frozen wastes of the North East with Sunderland in their sights.
'He thinks he has gone on to a better team, we think differently.`
Kevin Davies puts El Hadji Diouf straight. You don`t want to argue with Kev. Ask Patrice Evra or Gael Clichy.
Sunderland Team News:
Cinderella Craig Gordon is still sidelined, as is George McCartney who, like his namesake Heather, has a foot problem.
Pascal Chimbonda will probably start and El Hadji Diouf may feature.
Player to watch: Andy Reid
Little fat sod he may be but the former Charlton player knows how to pass a football. Will need close attention.
Bolton Team News:
Joey O'Brien is out with a thigh injury and Tamir Cohen hasn't been seen for months. Bolton will probably start with the same line up as at 'Boro
Player to watch: Fabrice Muamba
Looked awful earlier in the season, but is now coming into form and looks like developing into a forceful midfield presence.
Match Facts & Stats
Bolton's league record at Sunderland isn't good. Ten games won, 39 lost.
It would be just like Bolton to do the hard work at Middlesbrough and then slip up against a poorly performing team. But Gary Megson's outfit are gaining confidence and might just buck that trend this time.
Winning would be splendid. Even scoring against the Blues at the Reebok would be a start.
