Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's Championship meeting at the Reebok between Bolton and Leicester as Dougie Freedman looks to pick up his second win since joining Wanderers.

Dougie Freedman could pick up a second straight win as Bolton Wanderers manager when high-flying Leicester City visit the Reebok on Tuesday night.

Two quickfire goals against league leaders Cardiff saw Freedman begin his reign at Wanderers with a maximum on Saturday.

Now they face Leicester, who were top of the table before two defeats against Freedman's former club Palace and at Watford this weekend.

Nigel Pearson's men are still within one win of possibly reclaiming top spot and they will look to come out on top in the first meeting between the Foxes and the Trotters in nearly seven years.

Zak Whitbread is missing for Leicester after seeing red at the weekend while Wanderers are without David N'Gog as the Frenchman also was dismissed.
