Bolton Wanderers vs Sheffield Wednesday: Darren Moore reacts after Owls drop points late on

Sheffield Wednesday may not have a better chance to improve their away form when they take on Bolton this afternoon.

Saturday, 9th April 2022, 5:27 pm

The Trotters are without their captain Ricardo Santos, former Owls favourite Kieran Lee and January signing Kyle Dempsey.

Bolton’s 11-goal top-scorer Dapo Afolayan is only fit enough for the bench.

The Owls, who have six wins from 19 away games, are unbeaten in their last five matches.

There’s a flare on the pitch and an Owls player down hurt. Can’t see who.

Another Bolton chance

This time Will Aimson heads over the bar from a corner. Probably should have done better there.

George Byers and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing leave the field for Berahino and Paterson.

Noise levels going up

First chance goes to Bolton, put it’s put wide at the far post.
