After last nights result and where Bolton are in the table, we really should be looking to win this. I'm confident we can get a result up there!

I'd keep the same side as last night but I wouldn't be surprised to see Wilbraham start, might of given him a rest ready for this game. I hope not though, was very impressed with Agard yesterday.

700 sold so far for this, hopefully can shift a few more as its a big game. Any Bolton fans on here?

0-2 City

Cotts isn't really the type to tinker (frustratingly sometimes!) so I would expect to see the same team for this one.

Back to back wins would be massive in bringing a bit of confidence back to everyone, and I think it's a definite possibility here.

1-2 City

Going to this one, coaches unfortunately as I've left it far too late to book the train and I can't justify paying £70 odd quid when the coaches are only £23.

2-0 Bolton.

Want to go to this but money being a bit tight may have to give it a miss, maybe do Rotherham instead.

Big game, but a bigger one for Bolton than us. Lose this and they'll be properly cut adrift. Win'd be great but as long as we don't lose it'd be alright really.

Same team I expect and I hope. Maybe be nice to see Reid get a go but not too fussed either way

Expecting the same team to start, but wouldn't be at all surprised for Reid to come on in the second half. As said above, a much bigger game for Bolton then for us, but would still be nice to put more space between us and bottom 3. Think we may just have enough to sneak this so going with another 1-0 win to City.

Throwback reminder to when Flint said no, not once, not twice, but three times.

Although I'm quietly confident and do think we have the ability to win, I can't bring myself to predict a victory after the Fulham debacle.

I'll go for a frustrating 1-0 to Bolton. Their goal to come in the 55th minute after we've dominated the first half. If I expect that, anything else will be a nice surprise right? :)

That's my mentality, although this season it's rare that there are any 'nice surprises'!

Not far away now, and really not sure what to expect today.

2-0 or 0-2, likelihood is it'll be 2-0.

Hope Agard starts alongside Kodjia again.

Expect the same team again today, Agard is such a menace and stops teams from playing out of defence. Reid in for Freeman would be my choice, but Cotts is very loyal with his selections.

In positive spirits for this one.

1-3 to City.

Why is Attwell such a twat?

But well done Fielding for saving the non penalty.

You realise Bolton isn't in Lancashire right?
My location services says otherwise :p

It was 100% a penalty, shove in the back. Was a fucking awful referee though, whistle happy to say the least.

Awful game. First half utterly forgettable, second more open but still really lacking in quality. We had more of the play but lacking a final ball, and Bolton had the better chances tbf. Perhaps slightly fortunate to get a point, fuck me we were open on the counter towards the end. And there was the penalty saved although that was justice done.

Frustrating result against a very poor side, but another clean sheet and it was important not to lose today.

Anyway, as for the game, it was utterly abysmal. Like seriously, that first half was the worst half of Championship football I think I've ever seen.

Bolton were shit, yet they still should have won it. They missed numerous chances towards the end as we got exposed, and our final ball was really lacking today. Came very close on a couple of occasions, but our reluctancy to get the ball into the box or have a shot rather than just dilly-dallying around on the edge of the box with it, and then conceding possession.

The main talking point will obviously be the penalty. 100% a penalty. Without doubt. Decent save Fielding.

Have to disagree on the pen JJ. Baker just stood his ground, their guy threw himself over and the ref completely bought it.

Thankfully he almost guiltily scuffed it straight at Fielding.

Radio Bristol made out we should have had a penalty on Freeman in the first half and Boltons was very soft.

4 clean sheets in 6 games. :)

Bit misleading though, our defence in the 2nd half was as bad today as it was vs Fulham. A clinical team, or one that didn't have to rely on Gary Madine, would've scored a lot in that second half.

Ameobi was excellent today (missed penalty aside).Wouldve been a good upgrade on Wilbs.

It was a blatant shove in the back, how the fuck was it not a penalty? If that happens anywhere else on the pitch it gets given as a foul, so even if it did look soft, it's still a penalty. Rules are rules.

It's not a shove though, his arms don't touch him, he just goes behind, the player feels the slightest touch and chucks himself on the ground

He's bundled into the back of him, clumsy defending, it's a penalty.
