Premier League Match Time: Bolton Vs Blackburn

It's Premier League match time at Reebok Stadium on Sunday, December 12, as Bolton host Blackburn in match week 17.

Bolton are coming off a 1-0 loss away to Man City in match week 16. Bolton had a mediocre outingA� in which Davies and Elmander were completely stifled by theA� Man City back-line. Joe Hart between the Manchester City posts was hardly tested, barring a free kick by Petrov that Hart kept out easily, and a Ricketts free-kick that almost helped Bolton equalise owing to an error by the 'keeper.

Owen Coyle's squad could not capitalise on a 10-man City after Kolarov was sent off in 79th minutes for a rough tackle on Ricketts.

Blackburn atoned for their abject 7-1 thrashing by Manchester United in match week 15 with an impressive 3-0 win against Wolves built on the back of Pedersen's set-piece wizardry. The Norwegian had a hand in each of the two goals by Dunn, and Nelsen.

Early in the game, Blackburn's back-line was found wanting, particularly Salgado who was slow on his feet, and Wolves had scoring opportunities in the first 15 minutes. But it was Salgado's long ball to Richards that set up the second goal on 42 minutes after Emerton latched onto the ball flicked into his path by Richards, to get a left-footer home. Robinson had a good day between the posts for Blackburn as he kept out several scoring attempts by Wolves.

After Bolton are firmly ensconced in sixth place after 16 games, while Blackburn who went up to eighth could be leapfrogged by Sunderland, Newcastle or Liverpool after their respective games in match week 16.

Head to head, in 22 league matches between the sides, Blackburn enjoy a 8-3 win-loss ratio against Bolton, with 11 games drawn.

Bolton's home record has been reasonable with a solitary loss in eight games hosted, but they would want to improve on their win percentage with just three of those games won with the remaining four drawn.

Blackburn's away record has been good, too, with the Rovers losing just 2 of eight games on the road, with four wins.

On current form, you can expect a hard-fought game between two well-matched teams.

The following players were in Bolton's starting eleven against Man City: Jaaskelainen, Ricketts, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Lee, Davies, Muamba, Petrov, Elmander and Davies. Taylor, Moreno and Klasnik played as substitutes.

Blackburn's starting eleven against Wolves comprised Robinson, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Givet, Jones, Emerton, Dunn, Pedersen, Diouf and Roberts. The substitutes used were Diouf, Morris and Mwaruwari.
