Tomorrow we head to Burnley to kick off our first ever Championship campaign, and I’m sure this will be a trip down memory lane for manager Owen Coyle and players Chris Eagles, Tyrone Mears and Joe McKee.
We have no new injury concerns, with Holden and N’Gog are the unavailable with cartilage and knee problems respectively.
Bolton’s player (one-to-watch): Martin Petrov; the Bulgarian has been on fire during the whole of our pre-season and should cause real problems for the Burnley defence.
Burnley’s player (one-to-watch): Charlie Austin. This talented striker has spent most of his life as a bricklayer playing amateur football but when Swindon Town snapped him up, he became a prolific goal scorer, bagging 31 goals in 54 appearances. He also was Burnley’s top scorer last season with 16 goals.
I think the lineup for tomorrow may be as follows: Bogdan, Riley, Mills, Ream, Ricketts, Lee, M.Davies, Andrews, Petrov, Afobe, Sordell.
Match Verdict – This will be a close game, despite Burnley’s home advantage I have to predict a win for us – therefore it’s going to be a 2-1 result to the Wanderers.
What do you think the result will be this weekend? Do you agree with the lineups?
