Both the teams have been tipped to struggle this season with Stoke favorites to go straight back into the Championship. Bolton manager Gary Megson though will be hoping to avoid another season of near failure that almost saw them get relegated to the Championship for the first time in seven years.
A late surge in the final five games of the season which saw Bolton collect 11 points of a possible 15 saw the Trotters pull themselves out after spending most of the season in the drop zone. Megson has been fairly busy in the summer transfer market off-loading as many as eight players including El Hadji Diouf to Sunderland.
The Bolton manager has brought Johan Elmander as a replacement for Nicolas Anelka who departed to Chelsea in the January transfer window. Other arrivals include Fabrice Muamba, Riga Mustapha and Danny Shittu.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis too has embarked on a rebuilding process following promotion to the Premier League. Seyi George Olofinjana was signed from Wolves in a deal reported to be around 3 million while Dave Kitson moved from Reading for 5.5 million.
Pulis has admitted that he is interested in signing few more players including Valencia striker Nikola Zigic and Chelsea's Claudio Pizarro. While Stoke are expected to go down after just one season at the top, Pulis carries an enviable record of not having relegated even once in his career.
