Parkinson to make 2 changes – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Bolton line-up to face Birmingham City


Predicted Bolton Wanderers Line-up To Face Birmingham City In EFL Championship

On Tuesday night, Bolton Wanderers face a season-defining game against a resurgent Birmingham City, knowing that a defeat could see them slip closer to the relegation zone. After their 2-1 loss to Leeds United, it is vital that Bolton bounce back against a Birmingham side whose new found confidence will make them tough opponents.

After this game, Bolton play a promotion-chasing Derby County and Millwall, so this game against fellow relegation rivals is a must-win. Phil Parkinson will know the importance of this game as he attempts to steer his side away from the relegation mire.

Probable Bolton XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

GK – Ben Alnwick

The former Tottenham and Charlton keeper has been a constant for Bolton this season and will want to keep the Birmingham attackers out.

LB – Andrew Taylor

The strong defender is a key part of the Bolton defensive unit. His calm presence helps the team to work together.

CB – Reece Burke

The on-loan West Ham defender is very calm on the ball and is a prime example of a modern-day defender. He is also a threat during set-pieces.

CB – Mark Beevers

The former Millwall defender is at the heart of the Bolton defence. When he plays well, the team plays well.

RB – Jon Flanagan

The on-loan defender has been thrust into a team that is struggling at the wrong end of the Championship and will need to step up to the plate to save his new teammates.

CM – Derik Osede

The Spaniard can play in the defence and the midfield. He will operate as a blood and thunder defensive midfielder and be tasked with breaking up the Birmingham attacks.

CM – Jem Karacan

The former Reading midfielder will try and draw Birmingham into making a mistake before releasing the creative players further up the pitch.

LW – Zach Clough

The creative midfielder will want to make an impact. He will look to find pockets of space to deliver through balls to the striker.

CAM – Josh Vela

Josh Vela can be impressive with his attacking play. His manager will want him to play on the front foot.

Josh Vela

RW – Sammy Ameobi

The former Newcastle striker provided an assist in the previous game but hasn’t scored since the 2nd of February.

ST – Adam Le Fondre

The 32-year-old is the main man for Bolton but his tally of 5 goals is less than impressive.
