A Return to the Tundra

After last weeks victory over Middlesbrough, Bolton return to the frozen wastes of the North East with Sunderland in their sights.

Vital Quotes:

'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.

Match Prediction:

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.

Next Fixtures:

Chelsea (H)

Winning would be splendid. Even scoring against the Blues at the Reebok would be a start.
