Bolton boss Dougie Freedman believes his side are improving as they head into today's game against Albion.

Wanderers are unbeaten in four games since Freedman left Crystal Palace to take charge at the Reebok.

They let slip leads in recent games away to Blackpool and at home to Barnsley, both of which were drawn.

Freedman said: “I think we are slowly building in confidence and starting to look like a team capable of keeping clean sheets and winning football matches.

“There is now a structure in place and we're going forward with a game plan. Have we taken advantage of that so far? Maybe not, with results. But I see there is some form of momentum."

Bolton expect central defender Zat Knight to shake off a minor hip problem in time for the game.

Freedman has switched them from 4-4-2 to a 4-2-3-1 set-up with Kevin Davies at the sharp end.

  • I'm expecting some banter - Freedman in The Argus today.

Bolton; seem to be coming to terms with their loss of status after a number of years in the Premiership. In my humble view, the dark horses of the championship. Difficult game today, but provided the Albion keep the tempo high, then no reason not to come away with three points. (I Hope)
