Preview: Five talking points ahead of Hull City v Bolton Wanderers

25 August 2017

With Wanderers back in league action against Hull City on Friday night, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the Whites' Sky Bet Championship clash with the Tigers.

1. Unbeaten on our travels

Wanderers head to the KCOM Stadium this evening looking to continue their unbeaten run on the road this term in league and cup.

Having emerged victorious in the Carabao Cup against Crewe earlier this month, the Whites have since picked up points in the league with draws at Millwall and Birmingham City.

And coming into tonight's clash off the back of a confidence boosting victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the cup on Tuesday, the Trotters will be keen to extend that run come full time this evening.

2. Who will start?

Manager Phil Parkinson made seven changes in midweek as his side progressed into the third round of the Carabao Cup, with a number of the faces who came into the fray impressing against the Owls at Macron Stadium.

The gaffer will certainly have some tough decisions to make ahead of our latest Sky Bet Championship outing as a result, with competition for places hotter than ever.

3. Pay on the day at the KCOM Stadium

Fans will be able to purchase tickets for this evening's game at the KCOM, with a flat rate of £18 per person.

Those wishing to do so should head for the away supporters' bar upon their arrival at the ground.

4. A trip down memory lane

Wanderers definitely have some great memories from trips to Hull, with one Friday night visit in particular sticking in the memory from April 1993.

Despite finding themselves a goal and a man down, the Whites fought back courtesy of a Dean Windass own goal and John McGinlay strike to secure a victory which ultimately helped them win promotion from the third tier of English football a week later.

5. Manager's former club

Tonight's game will also see Phil Parkinson return to one of his former clubs.
 
Having started his managerial career with Colchester United in the early noughties, he then proceeded to spend a spell in charge of the Tigers from June until December 2006 following the departure of Peter Taylor.
 
After leaving the club however, he enjoyed stints with Charlton and Bradford before joining Wanderers and the rest, as they say, is history.
