Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is expecting a tough test against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Harry Redknapp’s side visit the Reebok Stadium where they’ll take on a Bolton side who currently find themselves in thirteenth place.

Earlier this week it was announced that Bolton striker Johan Elmander will miss the game.

Megson told their official site: ”It has worked out the same way as last year where we are playing teams in the next six games that all finished in the top-half last season. So it is going to be difficult, but we turned Tottenham over last season on our home patch and hopefully we can do the same again.

”We want to keep the momentum going as long as we can, confidence is high and the determination is there to do that.

”They had a good opening day win against Liverpool at White Hart Lane and I watched their second game of the season away at Hull City.

”They were scintillating that day and Hull just couldn’t cope with Robbie Keane, who kept dropping into the hole. The pace of Jermain Defoe caused lots of problems and they were convincing winners. It was as good of a performance as I’ve seen in a long time.

”Well that is going to be a tough task anyway, but we would love to keep a clean sheet. I would certainly prefer to win 2-1 though than have a nil-nil draw.

”People say and write things about all football clubs, and what is being said at the moment is that we haven’t kept clean sheet in the Premier League this season. The other side of that is that we have scored more goals than we have done for a lot of seasons at this stage.”
