Today marks the one year anniversary of Fabrice Muamba’s cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane. I need not remind any Bolton fan of the events of that day, but in case you’ve been under a rock for the past year here’s a brief summary:
It was 1-1 in the FA Cup Quarter Final heading in to half-time. Suddenly Fabrice Muamba fell to the ground and his heart stopped. Miraculously the medical staff at White Hart Lane managed to get him to hospital where he made a marvelous recovery. He has since retired from football on doctor’s advice.
Bolton are slowly becoming a feared side in the Championship, in a spell which has seen them undefeated in 8, 5 straight wins and only two goals conceded in the last four outings. A relegation battle has transformed into a playoff push since that defeat in early February at Vicarage Road, with the Wanderers sweetly poised just three points behind sixth placed Nottingham Forest.
