BIG-MATCH FACTS

 

Premier League survival is all that remains from this season for these two mid-table sides.

 

These are two of the Premier League's most inactive clubs. This is Bolton's 29th game of the season and Newcastle's 31st. By comparison, the Carling Cup final will be Manchester United's 46th fixture of the campaign.

 

Newcastle were the fifth of 10 clubs Gary Megson represented in his playing career. The Bolton manager made 21 league appearances for the Magpies in the 1984-85 season.

 

Newcastle gained their first points in six Premier League visits to Bolton with a 1-3 victory last season. The Magpies have not recorded back-to-back league victories at Bolton since 1911 and 1912.

 

Distance between the clubs: 152 miles (245 kilometres)

5. Won the last two home league games; not won three in a row at the Reebok since the last two of last season and the first of this.

Pretty sure Shola will be starting. I'd also like to see R. Taylor as what he actually is, a right back, so the other Taylor can finally get out the team. Wing pair of Duff and Jonas will suit me.

 

Pretty much the team i think will be picked.

 

How do you feel about strola and oba upfront?

If we win (and it is winnable), we'll nearly be safe. I worry about Smith and Butt in the middle though. And I would probably play them two if I was manager.

 

I dont think it will put us safe like bud but it certainly would be a massive boost. This is a 6 pointer for sure.

 

Smith and Butt in the middle doesnt exactly get me excited but id rather have either of them ahead of Geremi.

 

I dont think its a bad side we'll field on sunday but its not our best for sure.

 

What is our best side when fully fit?

Didn't mean mathematically safe but just the confidence boost and the notion will probably pick up at least another 8-10 points even if we're crap between now and the season end. Only trouble with our defence is they aren't great in the air. Bassong is good but he's not dominant enough to do it on his own against Bolton at their place hoying it into the mixer for 90 mins. That said, I could see us getting a 0-0. I'm not too confident of a win though. Nowts each is a canny result in the fgrand sheme of things however.

Bolton's home form (W5 D2 L6), is slightly misleading as four of the six defeats were Arsenal, Manu, Dippers and Chelsea (Everton, Wigan the other two). They've had decent results against bottom-half sides.

 

Not confident but I can't remember the last time I was this season. Draw for me.

Aye. I think Lawrenson is spot on with his logic tbf.

Come on Chris and Colin! Time to break out the 4-3-3!

 

I still say since we've got more (theoretically) strikers than we do mid-fielders, we ought to just start running 4-3-3 against teams without a lot of offense. Especially after Beye comes back.
