Bolton meets Blackburn in relegation match
19 December 2011, 17:52
London - The Premier League relegation battle could become clearer this week when Bolton and Blackburn — the bottom two clubs — go head-to-head.
With the season just short of halfway, the local rivals have five wins between them and their combined points tally wouldn't even earn a place in the top half of the standings.
Both are creating chances but neither can stop goals at the other end, so Tuesday's match at Ewood Park could be entertaining.
Bolton manager Owen Coyle says "confidence is key in football and certainly this is one of those times when it is being tested."
In a full midweek program, Manchester City hosts Stoke on Wednesday, when Manchester United is at Fulham.
