MKD may be 15th but we have shown we can f*** up against anyone and we have a new strikeforce so I've absolutely no idea how we'll get on in this one.
We need to win but my guess is that we'll draw 1 - 1.

I haven't a clue what team he'll play and whether that team turns up or not.
I expect to lose this game 2-0

Ref watch: David Coote to oversee MK Dons trip

David Coote will take charge of Wanderers' trip to MK Dons this weekend.

The Nottinghamshire-based official has run the rule over three Whites' outings in the past - the most recent being Bolton's away clash with Rochdale earlier this season..

Officiating his first Football League fixture back in April 2008, he has been a regular in the Football League since the 2010/11 season.

The man in the middle for 26 matches so far this season, Mr Coote has handed out 96 yellow cards and four red cards.

Adam Matthews and Daniel Robathan will run the line, while Nigel Lugg is the fourth official.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of MK Dons v Bolton Wanderers

1. First win of 2017?
Having been frustrated in recent weeks, Bolton head into Saturday's game in search of their first win of 2017 against the Dons.

Successive home reverses to Swindon Town and Charlton Athletic have been a blow for the Trotters, but having picked up a late equaliser in their last league game on the road against Coventry, they will head to stadiummk this weekend determined to go one further.

2. Adam Le Fondre
A more than familiar face to the Bolton faithful, Le Fondre's return to Macron Stadium on transfer deadline day was one which brought smiles to the faces of all associated with the club.

Having spent a loan stint with the Whites during the second half of the 2014/15 season, the 30-year-old notched eight goals in 17 appearances in that stint.

And now set to remain with Phil Parkinson's men until the current campaign's conclusion, the striker will be aiming for a repeat performance, hopefully starting with a debut goal this weekend.

3. Chris Long
The first of four players to join the club this week, young striker Long linked up with the Trotters on loan from Burnley for the rest of the season on Monday.

Still only 21, the highly-rated forward spent the first half of the current campaign on loan with fellow Sky Bet League One side Fleetwood Town.

Now a Wanderer however, the Liverpudlian will be eager to make his mark for the outset and add to his four goals already this term between now and April 30.

4. Viv Solomon-Otabor
Another attacking-minded player added to Bolton's ranks on Tuesday was young winger Solomon-Otabor.

Agreeing terms on a loan deal until the end of the season from parent club Birmingham City, the 21-year-old is an exciting prospect for Wanderers.

Held in high regard by all at St. Andrew's, the London-born wideman was also named as the Blues' Young Player of the Year last season.

5. Filipe Morais
Unveiled as a Bolton Wanderers player on Thursday, former Portuguese youth international Morais signed for the Whites on a free transfer until the conclusion of the campaign after being released by Bradford City.

The 31-year-old winger was formerly under the stewardship of manager Phil Parkinson during his time at Valley Parade.

Morais meanwhile boasts ample experience in the English game having started out with Chelsea, whilst he has also figured north of the border for various Scottish sides.

Setting off in a bit for the match, can't wait to hopefully see a bit more attacking intent than recent games and hopefully an away win. COYWM :footy: ::bwfc::

Alnwick, Wilson, Beevers , Wheater, Taylor, Derik, Vela, Spearing, Long, Morais, Madine, BWFC starting XI

Interesting- Henry and Thorpe not starting. And no ALF either. Presume they're all on the subs bench?

But playing Derik at FB again. When will Parky let him have a go in midfield?
Still, it makes sense to go with two wingers.

What make you think Derik is right back? He's playing his usual back line of 4 with Taylor and Wilson as full backs.  I reckon we'll see Derik further forward.

we were hanging on at the end and we only had 10 men so a point is not too bad. More of a worry are the injuries to both full backs. Wilson pulled his hamstring i think so will be out for a while and we have no back up right back as Buxton is always injured

Only 1 shot on target all match is also a major concern

Report: MK Dons 1-1 Bolton Wanderers


IN BRIEF

Wanderers picked up a point away at MK Dons on Saturday afternoon.

The game was played in front of a record league attendance for the club, but they were silenced on the stroke of half time when Jay Spearing found the back of the net with a free-kick from distance.

But a goal from Kieran Agard after the interval ensured honours were even.

The Whites were also forced to play the final ten minutes with a man down when Lawrie Wilson limped off with an injury after Phil Parkinson had used all his substitutes.

TEAM NEWS

New signings Chris Long and Filipe Morais were in the starting line up alongside the returning Derik and Dean Moxey while Adam Le Fondre and Viv Solomon-Otabor were named among the substitutes as manager Phil Parkinson made four changes from the side that lost to Charlton Athletic seven days earlier. 

Tom Thorpe and James Henry dropped to the bench. Andrew Taylor was named in the original starting XI but was withdrawn prior to the start.

FIRST HALF

After a frantic opening spell which saw both teams win early corners, the tempo soon settled.

Stadiummk had a large crowd due to a free ticketing initiative to celebrate the town’s 50th year. Wanderers were backed by over 1,200 travelling supporters and played their role in a buoyant atmosphere.

The two new boys, Morais and Long, combined to create Wanderers’ first chance. Alnwick comfortably gathered a Dons corner and immediately dispatched the ball to Morais who broke into the host’s half. The Portuguese’s cross found Long whose glancing header went wide of target.

The move and effort sparked the visitors into life and they looked the more likely of the two to break the deadlock.

Ed Upson’s 20-yard free kick had Alnwick scrambling just after the half hour mark but the ball was just a little too high.

Vela had a great opportunity just before the half time break when the ball fell to him on the edge of the box. However, he was unable to control his volley and the ball sailed over Martin’s bar.

Wanderers had Mark Beevers to thank for maintaining the stalemate as the opening 45 minutes drew to a close. A last ditch challenge by the big centre-half as Harvey Barnes went clean through on goal.

But deep into injury time, the visitors took the lead in bizarre circumstances. Morais was fouled over on the far touchline. Spearing took the free-kick and his intention was simply to put it into the danger area. 

But somehow the ball curled beyond Martin and into the back of the net as it evaded touches from either team and nestled into the bottom corner to silence the majority of the crowd. 

Spearing and his team-mates ran the length of the field to celebrate in front of the travelling army.

SECOND HALF

Wanderers emerged from the dressing rooms with confidence which showed in their play. Morais, impressive in the first half, continued in the same manner, putting in dangerous balls from the left.

One such effort resulted in Madine heading just over while Morais was replaced ten minutes of the restart by Clayton.

The equaliser came just before the hour mark when Wanderers failed to clear their lines. The ball fell to Agard on the edge of the box and he rifled home through a sea of legs to give Alnwick no chance.

Wanderers made their second substitution with Viv Solomon-Otabor replacing fellow debutant Long.

The hosts were dominating possession and Parkinson made his final change on 79 minutes with Le Fondre coming on for Derik.

Wanderers changed shaped with Le Fondre partnering Madine in a 4-4-2 system.

The visitors were forced into playing with ten men for the final ten minutes with Wilson going off injured. Captain Spearing dropped to right back.

Wanderers were hanging on for the point as the Dons were sensing victory, but some last gasp defending and a solid display from Alnwick ensured that Wanderers went back to BL6 with a point.

Poor one dimensional performance, long balls aimlessly lumped up to an isolated Madine, Derik was sat deep with Spearing nothing coming through midfield. Long and Morais did okay, the other new signings didn't have enough time to make an impact.

No beer in the ground, bad day all round.

Might prove to be a useful point at the end of the season but a dismal performance to say the least. At least the freaking motorway was open all the way home.

I'd use the Clough money to fuck Parkinson off, he's a poor mans Dougie Freedman, one dimensional, no plan B, poor use of substitutions, and anybody who thinks Madine should be first name on the teamsheet needs sectioning, get Gary Rowett in.

Give over Martin he's had his hands tied behind his back from day one, no money to buy players, had to bring in frees and loans and still had us in the top two or three for nearly all the season - give the bloke a chance for Christ sake.

As for the match, 29 seconds of highlights here - can't have been much of a game then!

Sluffy I'm all for giving a manager a chance, but this fella is Freedman MK2, he has no plan B, he persists with Madine who in terms of the team adds the best part of fuck all, his subs are not game changing, other managers have sussed his gameplan out and set their teams out to counteract it, which is why we are on the slide, Gillingham aside when have we looked comfortable in any game?

If we persist with him we'll be lucky to reach the playoffs.
