After the week seemingly from hell, Saturday’s game against Millwall became something of an afterthought for Bolton Wanderers. However, after claiming an unlikely win against the Lions, hopes of another relegation miracle are springing up for Bolton fans.
While it may be unlikely, a renewed sense of optimism surrounding the potential takeover of the club could give a huge boost to Bolton’s players and fans alike.
With just 10 games remaining this season though, Wanderers need every point they can get.
What better way to follow up Saturday’s win with another positive result. That’ll be the hope going into tomorrow night’s home fixture against Sheffield Wednesday.
Wanderers fell to an unfortunate defeat at Hillsborough the last time the two clubs met and will be striving for an improved result on Tuesday.
The Owls have improved dramatically since new boss Steve Bruce took over however. Wednesday are undefeated in all eight games since Bruce became manager, a worrying sign for Phil Parkinson and co.
Speaking to the club’s website today, Bolton boss Phil Parkinson said: “At Hillsborough earlier in the season, there was nothing in that game and they managed to nick it through a set play. I expect a similar encounter tomorrow night.”
A win, or even avoiding defeat against one of the Championship’s in-form sides could go a long way to closing the gap to the teams ahead. That could be crucial, especially with a local derby against Wigan coming up at the weekend.
How do you think Bolton will get on against Sheffield Wednesday?
