The match against Bolton tonight is a tough one to predict. We are coming off a good home performance against Swansea; a game we should have won. However, our away record over the last 12 months makes for grim reading.
Since the beginning of last season, we have picked up just three wins and four draws. However, as we all know, one of those victories was against Bolton in Garry Monk’s only away win so far in charge.
We have good memories heading to what is now called the University of Bolton Stadium. The away support was in full voice when we were last there helping the ten-man Blues over the line for a vital win. The Trotters are a much stronger side this season though, and on Twitter, not everyone is sure we’ll get a win:
I’d take a point tonight to keep our run going

Tough task tonight John. Bolton have been great so far and Parkinson’s recruitment has been fantastic. I’d take a point but we really need to win especially with forest away on Saturday. I’m going for a 1-1

Difficult to predict this one. After winning there 3 times on the bounce, I can't see us winning this time and hoping Clayton doesn't score. I'm going to go for a very hopeful 0-0 draw. KRO!

Some are banking on us getting the three points:

0 – 2. Mags and Juke on the score sheet.

As I’ve said this is a difficult one to call. I can see this being a very tight contest with one goal in it so I’ll back a 1-0 win for us with either Mags, Jutkiewicz or Bogle bagging the points.
