Friday night sees Bolton travel to Hull’s KCOM stadium for their next Championship encounter.
Having been beaten in their last league game against Derby, Bolton will be hoping to continue their decent away record so far this season having picked up points against both Millwall and Birmingham.
Hull have had a mixed start to the season sitting 14th in the table. They have managed a win against Burton, a draw against Aston Villa and defeats against Wolves and in their last league game, against QPR.
If Bolton are to come away with a good result, they’ll have to be at their best and watch out for key players such as veteran defender Michael Dawson, a midfield duo of David Meyler and recent summer signing Sebastian Larsson, and striker Frazier Campbell.
Last time we travelled to the then KC stadium back in 2015, Bolton then managed by Neil Lennon came away with a narrow 1-0 defeat after a goal from striker Chuba Akpom.
Over the years several players have worn both the white of Bolton and the gold and black stripes of Hull City, including Wanderers favourites Henrik Pedersen, Abdoulaye Faye, Jay-Jay Okocha and Sam Ricketts. Even Greek international Stelios even made 2 appearances for the Tigers.
The last time we came away with a win away from home against the Tigers was way back in 2008, during the Premier League days – a Matty Taylor goal on the 50th minute was the different between the two teams as we beat them 0-1.
Jen’s preferred starting XI: Howard, Little, Burke, Beevers, A Taylor, Buckley, Pratley, Karacan, Morais, Madine, Le Fondre
