I don't do score predicting so i'll just content myself with a few general comments, I'm in agreement with a previous poster about Bolton- They are a tough combative side who can actually play football when they stop trying to constantly launch the ball, we will need to be at our best to win this one, a repeat of the casual play we witnessed for large parts of the Cracow game will see us soundly beaten.

Looking in my paper today they had Ben Haim down at left back for Bolton, if he plays there we could have some joy especially if Bentley is fit, he should be able to get the better of somebody who's got the turning circle of an ocean liner.

I think Mokoena needs to start this game with Tugay or Savage on the bench, depending on who's available we may have to play the formation that ended the game on Thursday, we can not afford to take anybody into this game that is 100% match fit.

Team if Savage and Bentley are fit-

Friedel- Emerton , Oijer , Zurab , Neill- Bentley , Savage , Mokoena , Pedersen- Nonda , McCarthy.

Team if both Savage and Bentley don't make it-

Fiedel- Emerton , Oijer , Zurab , Neill- Jeffers , Mokoena , Mcarthy , Pedersen- Nonda , Roberts.

I think The Trotters play a much better game than the media have them down for. It's a bit like the media calling us bully boys when we were playing fair and square in-your-face football just like Everton.

It will be a difficult, yet entertaining, game.

Expect the usual after-Euro hangover and Anelka and Stellios to put them 2-0 up at half time.

All our second half pressure will only produce one goal, a pen scored by Lucas.

Actually, believe it or not, I haven't a clue and expect not to win a sausage on the lottery either.

Still go for 1-2
