Bolton – Statistics & Current Form
The Trotters could not shorten the distance to the saving shore by the surprising victory in Birmingham for the time being, as Reading also won, but of course the points are extremely important anyway. The morale of coach Philip Parkinson’s squad had been badly hit by four defeats and one draw. However, the success can be described in terms of game shares rather than happy triumph.
In the upcoming match, the Whites go down as the worst home team, which so far shot only ten goals in front of their own backdrop – absolute low in the championship! The attack is undoubtedly the biggest shortcoming this season. Strikers like Josh Magennis or Sam Ameobi have not met in weeks. Significantly, Birmingham’s winning goal came from a Callum Connolly defensive midfielder who came from Wigan Athletic in the summer and celebrated his first goal success with the four-time FA Cup winner.
In addition, with the Dutchman Yanic Wildschut remains a striker from injury. However, the new signing from Cardiff could not meet the expectations with just two goals in 16 league appearances. The weak overall balance at the Macron Stadium has recently improved slightly. Bolton won in the past five home games a win against Rotherham United and two draws against Stoke City and Reading. The names of the clubs, however, make it clear that the points were only drawn against clubs that are located even in the lower midfield of the table or even in the table cellar. Obviously, in spite of the tender hope little plant speaks at Bolton vs Norwich, the odds to win the home win in the eye.

Matthews – Olkowski – Wilson – Wheater – Beevers – Noone – O’Neil – Lowe – Connolly – Magennis – Donaldson

In his already sixth club station in the course of his career, formerly even at FC Schalke 04 or Celtic under contract, the 28-year-old attacker seems to feel very comfortable.
