Bolton vs Cardiff - Match preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Friday 24 January 2014

The Premier League’s bottom club, Cardiff City, travel to Championship club Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup fourth round.

Bolton were one of the pre-season favourites to be promoted, but have been extremely disappointing. It took them until October to even win a match, and after a mini-revival, they have slipped back towards the relegation zone, and last time out they were humiliated by Reading in a 7-1 thrashing. They have a strong squad, but the way things are going, Dougie Freedman’s job as manager could be under threat.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw his new Cardiff side win impressively at Newcastle United in round three, but since then they have dropped to the foot of the Premier League after two defeats, most significantly the loss to fellow strugglers West Ham United. With a trip to Old Trafford coming up on Tuesday, the Premier League will be the priority for the Welsh club, but they will be keen to avoid an upset.

David N’Gog might not play for Bolton, after being the subject of a bid from Swansea City. Jermaine Beckford also misses out, but Brazilian Andre Moritz will be fit enough to play.

Cardiff’s only absentee is left-back Andrew Taylor, so youngster Declan John will continue to deputise.
