Bolton Wanderers v Albion match preview

20 January 2019

Albion face Bolton Wanderers at the University of Bolton Stadium on Monday night (ko 8pm).

The opposition 

Bolton are currently second from bottom in the Sky Bet Championship table and have won just one of their last 17 league games.

They are managed by Phil Parkinson, who has been at the Club since 2016 - guiding Wanderers to promotion in his first campaign before keeping them up last season.

The Trotters' only victory in the league since September came against Rotherham United in a 2-1 win on Boxing Day.

Last time out

Our last meeting was on the opening day of the season as the Trotters snatched the points late on to resign Albion to a 2-1 home defeat.

However, the most recent game between the sides in Bolton was an exciting end-of-season 2-2 draw as Roy Hodgson's side came from two goals down to claim a point.
