PREVIEW: MIDWEEK ENGLISH ACTION
JOHN KRETLOW - Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Both Tim Ream and Stuart Holden hope to feature in Bolton's home match against Peterborough United, while Frank Simek's Carlisle United look to claw their way out of the bottom half of the League One standings.

Bolton Wanderers - Peterborough United

Tim Ream and Stuart Holden look to keep Bolton in strong form when they take on Peterborough United on Tuesday.

The American duo did not feature in Bolton's big win over Hull City at the weekend, but the short break could make manager Dougie Freedman to look at Ream or Holden.

The Trotters go into the midweek game on a four game unbeaten run in league play, including two straight wins at home. Bolton also has separated themselves from the drop zone by seven points.

Peterborough is in last place and lost to Birmingham City this weekend. They are four points from safety and will need a strong performance against a streaking Bolton side.

The Wanderers have no new injury worries, though Keith Andrews and Matt Mills are still sidelined with knocks.

Carlisle United - Walsall

Frank Simek is expected to start in Carlisle United's home match against Walsall.

The Cumbrians are on a three game winless skid, having drawn with Milton Keynes Dons at the weekend. They are in 16th place, but are a strong nine points above the drop zone.

Walsall is in 9th place and nine points from the last playoff position. They are on a four game unbeaten run and look to keep the strong play going with three points on Tuesday.

Danny Livesey and Matty Robson are doubtful to feature for the Cumbrians.

Notes

Zak Whitbread hopes to force his way into Leicester City's lineup when they take on Blackburn Rovers.

Mike Grella looks to force his way into Scunthorpe United's lineup when they take on Stevenage on Tuesday.
