Bristol City head to Bolton this Saturday on the back of a good midweek win against Wolves.

All the key information on their opponents can be found below.

 

BOLTON WANDERERS
The Trotters boast just one win to their name so far this campaign and currently take up one of the relegation places. Neil Lennon’s side have struggled in front of goal and are the lowest scorers in the division with just ten goals.

MANAGER
Neil Lennon – Former Celtic and Leicester City player who amassed over 550 appearances during his 22-year career. The 44-year-old entered management in 2010 with The Bhoys and won the Scottish Premier League three times and the Scottish Cup twice in his four years in Scotland. Lennon had a 70% win ratio in charge of Celtic, whereas his record at Bolton is only 26%.

STAR MAN
Liam Feeney – London-born midfielder who started his career in non-league with Hayes before two years at Salisbury City. He made his name in league football with Bournemouth and made over 100 appearances for the Cherries before Millwall came calling. He spent three years at the Den spending time on loan at Bolton and Blackburn before making a permanent switch to the former in 2014.

OFFICIALS
Stuart Attwell is appointed as the man in the middle. Christopher Akers and Duncan Street will assist him, and Kevin Wright will be the fourth official.

TICKETS
The match will be pay on the day. Cash only.

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol City 1-2 Bolton (2013) - Craig Davies’ penalty in the second half condemned City to defeat at Ashton Gate. A calamitous own goal Liam Fontaine opened the scoring for the Trotters before Steven Davies replied shorty after half-time. But after David N’Gog was fouled, Davies stepped up to win it for the Trotters.

LAST SEASON
Sky Bet Championship: 18th
FA Cup: Third round (lost to Chelsea)
Capital One Cup: Fourth round (lost to Liverpool)
