Bolton Preview

14 February 2013

Billy Davies will take his seat back in The City Ground dugout when his newly-adopted Nottingham Forest side face Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

He will be looking to provoke an instant upturn in form as The Reds go in search of their first win in over a month.

Bolton haven’t found life easy since their relegation from the Premier League and they currently languish in 17th place, four points behind Forest.

Davies has a fully-fit squad to choose from, while midfield duo Mark Davies and Medo are back in contention for The Trotters.

Forest - 19th
Bolton – 18th (Premier League)
