Bolton coming back up is no real surprise, but the fact they started 2021 in 15th is. They had a superb run through to the end of the season and with their house in order, they’ll be a much better prospect this time out.
There’s a familiar face in their line-up too, Matt Gilks played much of the season as their number one although there is every chance he’ll step aside for the upcoming campaign.
We didn’t get to go to their stadium in the curtailed 2019/20 season, so our visit there next time out will be out first since Chris Sutton’s side were beaten 4-0 in the FA Cup back in 2010.
