Two home games coming up to try to get back on track starting with Millwall on Saturday, a very winnable game, so I'm going 3-1.

Without Spearing and Howard we are shit. No doubt Trotter will keep his place.

Draw at best. 0-0.

Parky out!

Ref watch: Paul Tierney to take charge of Millwall visit

Paul Tierney will take charge of Wanderers’ Sky Bet League One clash with Millwall at Macron Stadium on Saturday.

The Lancashire-based official has overseen four Whites' matches in the past, the most recent being last season's 2-1 home defeat to Preston North End.

Having run the rule over his first Football League fixture in August 2009, his first second tier clash followed in February 2010 while he has also stepped up to the Premier League on occasions in the past three seasons.

Mr Tierney has controlled 11 matches so far this campaign, including two in the top-flight, dishing out 42 yellow cards and one red card along the way.

David Bryan and Harry Lennard will run the line, while Glen Hart is the fourth official.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Millwall

1. A league double?

Just over four weeks on from when Wanderers travelled to the Den and the two sides meet again at Macron Stadium with Phil Parkinson's side chasing a league double over Millwall.

The Whites were victorious home and away the last time the two sides were in the same division back in 2014/15.

With spectacular efforts from Sammy Ameobi and David Wheater clinching victory in the capital last month, will Bolton wrap up another league double on Saturday?

2. Jay Spearing could return!
Sidelined for the Trotters' last four outings after injuring his groin in the pre-match warm-up against Port Vale, Jay Spearing could return for Wanderers on Saturday.

The gaffer confirmed that the Whites' stand-in skipper has trained all week after making good progress and a decision will be made on whether he is ready to return.

Initially ruled out for four weeks, the midfielder's potential availability will be a welcome sight for manager, players and fans alike as Bolton look to bounce back against the Lions after successive defeats.

3. Ben Alnwick
Ben Alnwick will make his full league debut for the Trotters on Saturday after Mark Howard was ruled out for up to three months with the hand injury sustained at Peterborough United last weekend.

Before making his Wanderers league debut against his former side on Sunday, the shotstopper had had to be patient for a shot in the Whites' first team having been limited to two appearances in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Having established himself as a proven Sky Bet League One goalkeeper during his time with Peterborough, Alnwick will be eager to grab his opportunity with both hands ahead of what looks set to be a prolonged stint between the sticks.

And with recently capped England Under-18s international Jake Turner also stepping up from the Club's youth ranks to provide cover on the bench, Bolton fans should rest easy knowing their side's goal is in safe hands.

4. Millwall's away day blues
Millwall will be chasing a first ever win at Macron Stadium when they take on the Trotters on Saturday.

The Lions have not won away at Wanderers since January 1974, while their last league win on the road came even further back in October 1968.

Locking horns ten times at the home of the Whites since the former clash, Bolton have won nine of those meetings, only conceding four goals along the way.

They are also unbeaten from the last six outings between the sides both home win and away, winning all of the last three without conceding a goal.

Despite this, Millwall will be confident coming into the clash having won all of their last five matches as well as seven of their last eight outings.

However, that sole defeat came at the hands of the Trotters last month at the Den.

Will Wanderers' good form in this fixture continue? Get down to Macron Stadium on Saturday to find out! 

5. Wanderers' home form
Heading into Saturday's game off the back of successive defeats, the Whites will be looking to respond against the Lions on Saturday.

A Checkatrade Trophy exit and defeat to Peterborough saw Bolton's recent unbeaten runs in both all competitions and league come to an end.

However, the Trotters have won all of their last four outings at Macron Stadium while Parkinson has only lost once at BL6 all season since taking over as Wanderers manager back in the summer.

Now facing back-to-back home games in quick succession, the Whites will no doubt be buoyed by playing in front of their home fans once more as they look to maintain their recent run.

Played well all round, midfield looked better with spearing pulling the strings which allowed vela to hunt down their back four and put them under pressure, we also passed the ball better through midfield than we did last week and again spearing was a big part of that. 
 
A few others deserve a mention, Madine had a good game upfront battling for every ball and I thought Andy Taylor did really well both defending and going forward, probably the best LB we have had at the club since Gardner.
 

Vela heading for player of the season at this rate, great finish for the goal and never let Millwall settle on the ball.

Report: Bolton 2-0 Millwall


IN BRIEF

Wanderers bounced back to winning ways as they eased to a comfortable victory over Millwall at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

Following a slow start to proceedings, the Whites opened the scoring in style as Josh Vela’s volley from the edge of the area nestled into the back of the Lions’ net.

Bolton’s advantage was then doubled 12 minutes into the second half, with Tom Thorpe notching his first for the club with a powerful header from a corner kick to make sure of the win.

TEAM NEWS

Jay Spearing returned to the starting XI for Wanderers following his lay-off through injury, while Ben Alnwick made his first league start for the club in the absence of Mark Howard.

Derik Osede was also in from the off for Phil Parkinson’s men.

FIRST HALF

Bolton began the game in the ascendancy, although their opportunities in front of goal were limited to long range efforts which failed to trouble Jordan Archer inside the opening stages of the encounter.

The visitors then proceeded to enjoy a spell of pressure however, with a succession of corners ensuring that the Whites were on their guard early on.

As the game reached its quarter-hour mark however, neither goalkeeper had really been tested and the clash appeared to have fallen into a bit of a lull.

Out of nowhere however, Wanderers took the lead courtesy of a superb volley from the edge of the box by Vela.

Spearing had seen his initial shot blocked, but the ball fell kindly for the academy graduate on the edge of the box who struck a beautiful effort past a helpless Archer.

Just the boost the Trotters needed, they pushed forward in a bid to extend their lead thereafter with Liam Trotter being denied a goal against his former employers by an offside flag after turning home Clough’s initial parried shot.

Mark Beevers almost had his second of the season with ten minutes of the half remaining as he found himself in unfamiliar territory in Millwall’s 18-yard box, but the centre-half’s eventual drive was kept out at the near post by the Lions’ keeper.

Neil Harris’ side were failing to really trouble Alnwick in the Bolton goal, with their rare forays into Bolton territory resulting in nothing much of note.

On the stroke of half time however, some last ditch defending from Derik ensured that a dangerous ball from Fred Onyedinma was cleared away from danger.

Up the other end meanwhile, Spearing saw a deft header tipped onto the crossbar by Archer with the midfielder agonisingly close to doubling Bolton’s advantage.

As the half time whistle was blown however, it was just the one-goal lead for the Whites.

SECOND HALF

Wanderers made just the one change at the break, with Trotter being replaced by Tom Thorpe.

And they came close to doubling their tally just three minutes into the second period, with a Spearing free-kick causing all kinds of problems for Archer.

The run of play in the game continued to fall Wanderers’ way, with Clough proving himself a handful for the Millwall backline as the encounter made its way to the hour mark.

And they were eventually rewarded with 57 minutes on the clock as Thorpe opened his account for the club with a powerful header from a corner kick.

Completely deserved given the Whites’ dominance, it was almost three shortly after as Vela pickpocketed the ball on the left flank, cut inside at the byline and teed up Clough, but his fellow academy graduate saw the ball snuffed out by a Millwall defender just as he was about to unleash.

They certainly weren’t for resting on their laurels either, with the home side looking dangerous with each passing attack while Ameobi saw a thunderous drive from 30 yards parried by Archer with 23 minutes left.

Ameobi in particular was a tyrant for the Millwall backline, with them unable to get to grips with the on-loan forward as he slalomed into the Lions’ box.

Alnwick was virtually a spectator as the match entered its final quarter, with the shot-stopper only being called upon to pluck the ball out of the air on a handful of occasions.

With the game inside its final ten minutes, it was a case of now-or-never for the Lions if they were to have any hope of snatching something from the game, but Wanderers were standing firm.

Bolton themselves even enjoyed half-opportunities to extend their lead, but come the final whistle it simply didn't matter as the points were comfortably theirs.

Decent performance, never really looked like losing.

Spearing clearly man of the match, he is far and away our best player. Credit to Derek for coming in and doing a sound job.

:agree:  The only problem for me today was keeping warm. A bloke near us brought his own cushion. What's the world coming to.

Another solid performance all through the team another clean sheet despite two changes to the back 5 same again Tuesday please . Thought Taylor had a very good game at left back. Madine a real solid shift but he will never be a goalscorer.
