Team News: Bolton Wanderers
From a largely available group, there is only the one fitness worry for the Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt to contend with. George Johnston (Knee surgery) won’t be playing here.
We feel that Bolton Wanderers and Stockport County should be able to score more than one goal each in what is shaping up to be a fairly even contest.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility but, again, we don’t expect it to end goalless. That’s why our selection here is for a very even match with a 2-2 scoreline when all is said and done.
