Two of the three clubs in the relegation zone go head-to-head in what can be seen as an early season 6-pointer, as 23rd placed Fulham host 22nd placed Bolton Wanderers. Fulham go into the game on the back of their first win of the campaign, a 2-1 victory over Birmingham City on Saturday, with fans hoping that will help kick-start their season. Bolton, however, travel to Craven Cottage following a 2-0 home defeat to Derby County, in which a large majority of fans chanted 'Freedman Out' (the manager) and 'Gartside Out' (the chairman).

Fulham will be without Shaun Hutchinson, as he continues to serve his suspension following his horror tackle on Blackburn's Lee Williamson in their 1-0 home defeat. There are no new injury concerns for Kit Symons, after Scott Parker returned to the squad on Saturday. Bolton boss Dougie Freedman will be without youngsters Josh Vela and Sanmi Odelusi, Marc Tierney, Adam Bogdan, David Wheater and Liam Trotter as they continue their recovery to full fitness.

Fulham will be likely to stick with a similar squad that clinched victory over Birmingham, with Symons hoping that he has found the winning formula for Fulham and lift them out of the bottom three and up the table. Record signing Ross McCormack is set to start upfront along side Hugo Rodellega, after the Columbian scored the winner at the weekend.

Bolton will have to attack from the off, as their defence has been very poor so far this season. Dougie Freedman will have to see victory at full time or even more pressure from the stands will be put on the board to sack the Scot.

As a Bolton fan, I would love to see us Whites win, but I can't see us coming away from the Cottage with anything, our performances so far have been gutless and Dougie Freedman and Phil Gartside should no longer be at the club.
