SACK RACE

Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman is starring the sack after a very poor start to the campaign, which has left the club bottom of the table after eight matches. Bolton are without a single win in this opening round of fixtures.

The team came into the weekend's match against Brighton and Hove Albion looking for the first win of the season, but they were disappointed yet again after a 3-1 defeat. This defeat has raised questions about the future of manager Freedman at the club.

BOLTON TARGET PROMOTION

Bolton Wanderers will be looking to target promotion in the new season according to manager Dougie Freedman, who has said that the club will be looking to make a couple of signings before the end of the transfer window.

BOLTON WANT BECKFORD

Bolton Wanderers have shown a lot of interest in signing Leicester City striker Jermaine Beckford, but the deal is far from being completed due to several issues.

Bolton are yet to agree a deal with Leicester, while they are also believed to be miles apart when it comes to agreeing personal terms with the striker. Former Everton striker Beckford is one of the best strikers in the Championship, but it seems that his astronomical wage demands may put off the deal.

NOT BREAKING THE BANK

Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has said that the club will not be breaking the bank in order to keep defender Marcus Alonso at the club. The Spaniard has been heavily linked with several clubs across Europe like Fiorentina, Swansea, and Celtic.

FREEDMAN SATISFIED

The Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has said that he is extremely satisfied with the performance of his players despite being defeated by Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup. It took a last-minute goal from the Premier league club to beat Bolton as they put in a great performance.

CHARACTER AND QUALITY

The Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has said that he is extremely delighted with the character and quality shown by the players in the recent match against Birmingham city.

Bolton Wanderers looked like suffering yet another defeat in a match after Birmingham have taken the lead through a goal from Zigic after just 11 min on the clock. Due to the fact that both are coming into the encounter on the back of two consecutive defeats, things appeared to go from bad to worse for Freedman and his team in the initial stages of the match.

ROTATION CONTINUES

The Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has said that he will continue with his policy to rotate the squad after managing to impress sufficiently since taking over from Owen Coyle on a permanent basis. Since the sacking of Owen Coyle, Bolton Wanderers have been able to make their way up the table.

They are also undefeated in the last six matches, while they recently managed a spectacular 2-1 win over Blackburn in the Lancashire derby. This away victory against the former Premier league club has been met with a lot of confidence at the Reebok stadium.

Bolton vs Peterborough Preview

Bolton Wanders’ next Championship match will be played away against Peterborough on 22nd December and if you are interested in betting on the outcome then the bookmakers are currently offering odds of around 12/5 on a home side win and 6/5 on Bolton. A draw is priced at 5/2.

Poor Peterborough is having a hard time this season. The club is languishing at the very bottom of the Championship League table with just 19 points from 22 games and a negative goal difference of -15. Out of their last 10 games they have lost all but two with one draw.

COYLE SLAMS REFS

The Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has said that a number of refereeing decisions have cost the club dearly in the new Championship season. Bolton were one of the teams expected to do well in the Championship season due to the fact that they have come into the division as one of the experienced Premier league campaigners who had been relegated the previous season.

POSITIVE RESPONSE NEEDED

The Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has said that the players should be showing a positive response to the 2-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Burnley on the opening day of the new Championship season.

Bolton Wanderers were relegated from the Premier league after more than a decade of top flight football. However, they have decided to retain their manager Owen Coyle with a view of returning to the Premier league in the first instance. They began the life in the Championship in the worst possible manner after a 2-0 defeat against Owen Coyle's former employers.
