Bolton v Man City preview

Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba faces a race to be fit for the

game against City. Muamba is doubtful after suffering a hamstring

injury in the defeat by Blackpool last weekend. Mark Davies, Stuart

Holden, Sam Ricketts and Sean Davis are all long-term absentees.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is set to name a full-strength

side. Mancini will leave nothing to chance as City chase the

victory that will secure an automatic place in next season’s

Champions League. The future of skipper Carlos Tevez is still

shrouded in doubt but the 20-goal striker needs to score more than

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov manages at home to

Blackpool to secure the Premier League’s Golden Boot award. Bolton
