Bolton vs Middlesbrough Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Bolton

The home team had a positive run of five straight games with a win before going without one in their last two matchups. Bolton players will believe that they have a chance against a team that has struggled mightily at the start of the season. George Johnston is out through injury.

Expected lineup: Baxter, Santos, Iredale, Jones, Maghoma, Thomason, Cogley, Dempsey, Williams, Charles, Adeboyejo.

Middlesbrough

The only win Middlesbrough has earned this season was in their first encounter in the EFL Cup where they defeated Huddersfield. The team has three losses and a draw in their four matches in the Championship. Anfernee Dijksteel is injured.

Expected lineup: Dieng, Fry, Smith, Lenihan, Engel, Hackney, Howson, Rogers, McGree, Silvera, Latte Lath.

Player to Watch: Victor Adeboyejo

It has been a terrific start to the season for Bolton's top scorer Victor Adeboyejo. The Nigerian striker has scored four goals and added an assist in four games in League One. He featured during a few minutes in the team's first EFL Cup match, but he could get a better shot against their next opponent.

Adeboyejo is in his first full season playing for Bolton after arriving from Burton Albion, and he couldn't get more effective to start the season even if he tried. The 25-year-old has a total of seven goals in 23 games since taking over goalscoring duties at Bolton. His best form was seen playing at Burton where he scored 13 goals.
