Burton Albion – Bolton Preview: Latest Form, News, and Potential Lineups

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

Burton Albion

The Brewers have suffered an awful start to the new season (W0 D1 L4). With a single point in the league, won just last weekend in a 0-0 away draw vs Wycombe, Burton are feeling serious pressure already. 

Such a slow start was to be expected as the Brewers hit financial difficulties in the summer and had to sell 11 of their players. Replaced those with 10 new signings but the many changes and the lower quality of the newcomers are causing problems so far. 

On top of all else, the team’s main duo in attack Stockton and Walker are nursing injuries and both have missed the last 3 games. Also, the starting goalie Blackman is expected to sit out with a shoulder problem. All this forces the gaffer to trust some players he would usually keep on the bench. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Crocombe (GK), Brayford, Hughes, Moon, Caprice, Powell, Oshilaja, Chauke, Seddon, Gordon & Kamwa

Bolton

The Trotters had a very painful experience last weekend when they suffered their first league defeat of the season. It was against their bitter local rivals Wigan and the result was 0-4. This was by far Bolton’s worst showing so far this campaign. 

Bolton also struggle to beat Burton when these sides meet. The Trotters have won only 1 of the previous 9 H2Hs. 

Dion Charles returns for this game after serving his ban. He should start instead of the very disappointing last weekend N’Lundulu. Defender Toal is also an option again after an ankle injury but he’s more likely to start on the bench. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Baxter (GK), Jones, Santos, Iredale, Dacres-Cogley, Morley, Sheehan, Williams, Dempsey, Charles & Adeboyejo

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Victor Adeboyejo

Striker Victor Adeboyejo left Burton Albion only last January to join Bolton. Despite cutting his season at Burton short Adeboyejo still finished the campaign officially as their top goalscorer. 

Adeboyejo has scored 4 goals for Bolton in the first 4 rounds this season and he is the main threat up front right now. Now against, his ex-teammates and on a ground he knows well we back Adeboyejo to score again.
