Preview: Five talking points ahead of Brentford v Bolton Wanderers

12 January 2018

As Wanderers return to league action this weekend in the capital away at Brentford, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of Saturday's clash at Griffin Park.

1. Winning run

Wanderers return to league action on Saturday afternoon following an almost two-week break from the Sky Bet Championship, but they do so having won their last two outings against Sheffield United and Hull City.

Last Saturday's narrow Emirates FA Cup defeat to Huddersfield is the only blemish on the Whites' recent form, with Phil Parkinson's men's attentions now solely focused on their domestic exploits.

Can the Trotters make it a hat-trick of league victories come the final whistle this Saturday?

2. Back on the road

Following back-to-back home games in league and cup, Wanderers head back out on their travels this weekend for the first time in a fortnight.

Last time out on the road however they managed to secure their first away league victory of the campaign down at Bramall Lane, and will no doubt be keen to follow that result up with another in the capital this Saturday.

3. Harry Charsley

Having made the switch to Macron Stadium on Friday on loan from Everton for the rest of the season, could Saturday see a first Bolton appearance for midfielder Harry Charsley?

The 21-year-old has already figured in the Europa League for the Toffees this season, making his debut for the Merseysiders in their game against Apollon Limassol in December.

And following on from fellow youngster Connor Hall's maiden Bolton appearance against Huddersfield Town last Saturday afternoon, there could be another debutant in the Whites' ranks this weekend.

4. Injury news

There are no fresh injury concerns from last weekend's outing in the Emirates FA Cup, but Karl Henry and Darren Pratley remain sidelined with their respective knocks which they picked up against Hull City on New Year's Day.

With a number of players coming into the fray last time out meanwhile in the cup and putting in impressive performances, the manager will no doubt have food for thought when it comes to his team selection. 

5. Pay on the day

Bolton Wanderers fans will be able to purchase tickets on the day of the match for this Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash away at Brentford.
