Faye, who joined the Tigers during the summer, played more than 70 games for Wanderers between 2005-2007 and says this weekend’s game is a special one for him.
“It’s a special game because it’s against my old team,” said Faye.
“When I came to play in England, Bolton was my first team and I had a good time there. I’m certainly looking forward to coming up against Kevin Davies because I played in the same team as him.
“I have happy memories of playing with the likes of Jay-Jay Okocha and Ivan Campo. My family still live in Bolton as well, so I am very excited to be playing against them on Saturday.”
Both teams go into Saturday’s game with identical records in the league this season with a win, a draw and a defeat from the first three games.
Faye feels City have made a solid enough start but knows things can get better.
“It’s not been too bad so far and we won our first game,” adds the centre back.
“We played well in the game we lost at Blackburn and then should have won at Charlton but didn’t take our chances.
“This game against Bolton is now very important. If you want to go up, you have to win your home games.
“We have the players to win this game.”
