Bolton Wanderers will travel to Coventry City this weekend. The Trotters will be looking to make it three games unbeaten in the league against high flying Coventry.

Despite Bolton struggling at the bottom of League One, they managed a solid performance against Tranmere Rovers last weekend. Goals from Dennis Politic and Chris O’Grady gave the Wanderers a clean sheet and three points.

However, this week should be a tougher challenge when they travel to a fifth-placed Coventry City.

Coventry hasn’t lost a league game since December. Although, they have had an extra few games recently as they’ve been competing in the FA Cup.

With the Bolton squad feeling positive from the win over Tranmere, there’s a chance they may be able to take advantage of Coventry’s extra games…

Keith Hill has options

With that in mind, it’s worth thinking about the team selection that Keith Hill should pick this weekend.

New additions to Hill’s squad such as Ethan Hamilton and Kean Bryan got their debuts against Tranmere. He does have a few other options but should he use them?

There should be a range of players on the bench incase Bolton do struggle. However, this winning side had an outstanding performance last weekend that shouldn’t be changed.

Ex Nottingham Forest player Daryl Murphy is becoming a fan favourite at Bolton

Daryl Murphy has become a fan favourite at the University of Bolton Stadium this season. He has produced most of their goals this season.

However, it was Chris O’Grady and 19-year-old Dennis Politic who were responsible for the goals against Tranmere.

Hopefully, all three players will be able to contribute towards a solid performance this weekend.
