Bolton enter this weekends home tie against Chelsea with no points from their last four Premier League fixtures and in desperate need of a turnaround in fortunes.
A winless September sees them rock bottom of the league with only the three points they picked up on the opening day of the season away to QPR.
Chelsea arrive after a mid-week draw in the Champions league against Valenica, a game they were all set to win until a penalty in the dying minutes of the game going against them.
It was positive night overall though with Frank Lampard finding the back of the net following weeks of speculation over his future as a Chelsea player.
Premier League form sees them sitting third in the league with 13 points having lost only one game this season, 3-1 away to Man Utd, making them firm favourites for the win this weekend.
With Fernando Torres suspended due to the straight red he saw last weekend against Swansea, Andre Villa-Boas may look towards Didier Drogba to lead the attack after his goal last weekend marking his return from injury.
Owen Coyle finds himself once again without Stuart Holden who is sidelined for another six months with a knee injury and David Wheater who is suspended after last weekend’s red card. David Ngog looks set to return after only lasting 20 minutes last weekend at the Emirates.
All the action will be live from the Reebok Stadium on Sky Sports 1 from 1.30pm on Sunday afternoon.
Bolton, the major underdogs due to their poor home form this season, will be hoping with the home fans behind them they can take something from this game to kick-start their season.
However Chelsea will be expected to walk away with all three points as they aim to keep the pressure on the two Manchester clubs leading the way in the Premier League so far this season.
