Key Player:

Kevin Davies: A fans favourite at the Reebok for many years now, big Kevin Davies has led the line heroically for the Trotters. The powerful centre forward only scored 8 goals last season but brings much more to side than what his goal tally suggests. Davies` ability to bring his teammates into play is second to none, which will provide a stern test for the Rangers defence. Davies plays with his back to goal and uses his physicality to hold up the ball and create openings for the Bolton attack. In 2010, Davies at the age of 33 earned his first England cap against Montenegro. In my opinion, Davies has been unlucky not to have been called up to the national side more often with players such as Carlton Cole and Emile Heskey being selected ahead of the Bolton talisman. Davies has made 637 career appearances, scoring 130 goals.
