Bolton v Blackburn Preview

Bolton host Blackburn in Sunday's Sky featured game.

Vital Quotes:

'We didn't want Nic to go anywhere but he had the chance to join one of the biggest clubs in the world.'

Bolton manager Mystic Megson on Nicolas Anelka's transfer. So Eddie Davies didn't want his money back then? Thanks for clearing that up.

Bolton Team News:

El Hadji Diouf has gone to the ACN and Anelka has gone forever. Abdoulaye Meite is also Africa bound. Oh dear.

Player to watch: Kevin Nolan

Watch and laugh. A candidate for the worst midfielder in the Premier League. Nolan is slow and immobile and so keen to get on the score sheet that he's happy to neglect is duties in the centre of the park

Blackburn Team News:

Roque Santa Cruz should be available after a groin injury. David Dunn, Steven Reid and Andre Ooijer are also in contention

Player to watch: Roque Santa Cruz

In fine form now he's stopped making those boxing movies. Santa Cruz v Michalik. Oh dear.

Match Facts & Stats

The home team hasn't won this fixture in the league since February 2000. These games are usually dire, so why Sky has once again chosen to screen this is anyone's guess.

Ref Watch:

Mike Dean, who sent Nolan off in the away game between these two last season.

Match Prediction:

Away win. Blackburn have been in poor form lately. Bolton have been that way for a year. The Wanderers are toothless in attack, wobbly in defence and clueless in midfield. This game will probably have purists reaching for the prozac.

Next Fixtures:

Newcastle (A)
