Bottom of the table Bolton host eighteenth placed Fulham on Saturday.
The Macron Stadium will witness a contest that Neil Lennon will be desperate to win.
If Bolton manage to win they could leapfrog Rotherham who are likely to lose against visiting Hull City. Despite being bottom of the Championship, Bolton’s biggest concern is actually off the field.
The club are in severe financial difficulties and their current footballing performance only adds to the misery of their fans.
Fulham will be looking to win to avoid slipping closer to the relegation zone, with Huddersfield in a position to overtake them.

Max Clayton’s ankle problem will keep him out of the Bolton side. Wellington Silva will be unavailable due to an ongoing hamstring problem.
Zach Clough looks set to start after overcoming shoulder trouble and Josh Vela is touch and go due to a knee problem.
Bolton haven’t managed to win in their last fifteen matches and it is hard to see that changing on Saturday.
However, Fulham find themselves without a manager and are on the Championship’s second longest losing streak, having been winless in their last seven matches.
Lennon will be looking to capitalise on their woes and bring some much needed cheer to his Bolton side.
Fulham’s Scott Parker has been out lately with an ankle problem but could make his return in the visit to Bolton. Fulham’s defense will be without Jack Grimmer, sidelined by an ankle complaint, and Ryan Tunnicliffe’s hamstring troubles will keep him out of the midfield.
Stuart Gray, Senior Coach of Fulham, will be leading the side out against Bolton as a permanent Head Coach still hasn’t been appointed.
Gray’s talked about the importance of not conceding early as he acknowledges his team’s difficulty in chasing a lead.
The match could go one of two ways – the drab affair that many are predicting, or an unexpectedly exciting match between two teams with a lot to prove.
A victory would mean more to Bolton that it would to Fulham.
As is so often the case in football, a moment of magic could provide the momentum that Lennon’s side need to begin their aim of escaping the relegation zone.
