Bolton – Wigan Preview: Latest Form, News, and Potential Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Bolton vs Wigan lineups.

Bolton

Bolton made it 4 wins in 4, 1 of those in the League Cup, on Tuesday when they easily beat Fleetwood 3-1 at home. The Wanderers took their chances well in this match and scored 3 goals with just 4 shots on target. 

Bolton have been very dominant in every display so far and they are yet to have less than 54% possession in a football match this season. 

Striker Adeboyejo is the League One leading goalscorer after 3 rounds with his 4 goals. He scored all of those on home turf. 

The team’s other main striker Dion Charles will be absent now as he is serving a ban. Also, centre-back Johnston is out for the season with an ACL injury. In better news, both Toal (centre-back) and Bödvarsson (striker) have been passed fit. Both will be options off the bench. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Baxter (GK), Jones, Almeida, Iredale, Dacres-Cogley, Morley, Sheehan, Williams, Dempsey, N’Lundulu & Adeboyejo 

Wigan

Despite being the better side on Tuesday night Wigan had to settle only for a 1-1 draw on their visit to Carlisle. Those were the first points dropped this season with Wigan able to win their first 2 league matches. 

Despite earning 7 points from 3 games Wigan remain on negative points total as they had a serious point-deduction due to financial difficulties. 

Wigan have issues in defence for this local derby. Both Kerr and Jones are nursing injuries and only the latter has an outside chance of making the squad. Both would have been starting if fully fit. 

Veteran McManaman also playing through an injury. We expect him to be involved but he won’t be able to play the full 90 minutes. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Tickle (GK), Clare, Hughes, Morrison, Pearce, Smith, Adeeko, McManaman, Lang, Aasgaard & Wyke 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Victor Adeboyejo

After scoring 4 goals in Bolton’s first 2 home games this season the in-form striker Adeboyejo is the player to watch. Now even more of the forward actions will be channelled through him with his main partner Dion Charles missing suspended. 

We can see Adeboyejo continuing his hot start to the season with another goal or two.
