Bolton vs Brentford by Hassy
Despite currently sitting at the bottom of the league table, most will be surprised to see that Bolton have only lost once at home so far and have chalked up six draws in their eight matches.
Bolton boss Neil Lennon will make a last-minute decision on Stephen Dobbie's fitness before the live Sky Sports clash with Brentford on Monday night. Dobbie has been struggling in training due to shin problems and his fitness will be monitored. Wellington Silva (hamstring), Dean Moxey (foot) and Zach Clough (shoulder) are still out with long-term injuries. Young midfielder Tom Walker is available and hoping to be considered after overcoming a foot injury.
Since Lee Carsley was appointed temporary manager for The Bees, (despite him not even wanting the job) they have shown a remarkable upturn in their fortunes. They have won five matches of the seven matches he has overseen and come into the match in good spirits. Brentford will be without suspended Harlee Dean at the Macron Stadium. Jack O'Connell will fancy his chances of coming into the Bees' starting line-up in Dean's place.
Marco, Djuricin (ankle), Maxime Colin, Andreas Bjelland, Scott Hogan (all knee), Lewis Macleod (hamstring) and Jota (ankle) are all still sidelined.
Bolton don't score many goals but at the same time they do not concede many either. The defensive solidity is what gives me confidence in a draw. Despite Brentford hitting a bit of form they are expected to announce a new manager this week so I expect them to be slightly off their guard. One thing for sure is that the under 2.5 goals market appeals as this will be a tight match and the tightness of the fixture, Bolton's high number of home draws leads to another 0-0 or 1-1 for Neil Lennon.
