Three successive wins had put Bolton on the way to Premier League survival, but back-to-back defeats, to Fulham and Newcastle, have dragged them back into the relegation dogfight. The biggest concern for Coyle at the moment, as he looks to steer a course to safety, is a leaky defence, with Bolton having failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine league games. They have also gone 10 matches without a shutout on home soil. Those statistics offer hope to Swansea, as they look to build on last weekend's impressive performance against another struggling outfit - Blackburn. A 3-0 victory over Rovers saw the Swans snap out of a four-match losing run, and they are now back in the hunt for a top-half finish.
• Bolton have won fewer games at the Reebok (4) in the Premier League than they have away from home (5) this season.
• Only QPR and Bolton have lost more away games in the Premier League this season than Swansea.
