We'll get dicked. You know, I know it, Parky knows it.

Even our 10-0-0 formation won't save us.

0-3 to the Boro.

They have a phenomenal squad for this level so I also expect us get dicked even if Parky finally gets round to changing the shape. What I don't want to happen is for us to try a different system, get dicked anyway simply because Boro have better players than we do and then abandon the new system just because it couldn't beat a £100 million team.

I think we'll lose by at least 2.

I'm looking forward to playing with three right wingers. Surely Parky wouldn't waste money on Ameobi & Noone and then not play them?

Hard to see anything other than a defeat probably by a couple of goals but you never know can but hope.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Middlesbrough

As Wanderers return to action against Middlesbrough this weekend after the September international break, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the Whites' Sky Bet Championship clash with the Teesiders.

1. Club football is back!

Club football returns to Macron Stadium on Saturday after the international break as Wanderers welcome Middlesbrough to BL6.

Having lost their their last outing before the break in disappointing manner against Hull City, it has been a long two weeks for the Whites as they looked to re-group at Lostock.

Hungry to bounce back, this weekend's clash with Boro gives Bolton the perfect opportunity to kickstart their season in front of their home fans.

Tickets for the game are available online, with fans able to buy in advance and print at home to avoid queues at Macron Stadium.

2. International break

The international break has provided Phil Parkinson with both positives and negatives heading into Saturday's game.

While Wanderers have had to wait that bit longer to get back on the field after their last outing, an extra week on the training field has been welcomed after a fast-paced opening month to the 2017/18 season.

Injured players have had an extra week to recover, presenting the Whites manager with a welcome selection dilemma as certain members of his first team squad close in on first team returns.

However, Bolton also saw West Ham United loanee Josh Cullen play the full 90 minutes for Republic of Ireland Under-21s as they faced Azerbaijan in Baku for their latest European qualifier.

And with Parkinson having resisted the urge to rotate for league fixtures so far this season, the likes of Derik Osede and Antonee Robinson could be given the opportunity to start after impressing in Carabao Cup fixtures.

3. Injury news

David Wheater is in line to make his first team return against his former club this weekend having been sidelined since the opening day of the season, while Phil Parkinson confirmed the injury suffered by Jem Karacan at Hull City is not as bad as first feared.

Late decisions will be made on Will Buckley and Josh Cullen after the pair also both limped off against the Tigers, but Sammy Ameobi is not yet ready to return. Josh Vela remains sidelined.

4. Signing session

Fans can meet Sammy Ameobi and Josh Vela in Bolton Central this Saturday with the popular duo appearing in the club's retail outlet to meet fans from 12.45pm onwards prior to the Trotters' Sky Bet Championship clash with Middlesbrough.
With Wanderers' 2017/18 home shirt back in stock in store, 'Wanderers Return', the club's 2016/17 promotion-winning commemorative book, available for a reduced price of just £10 and Bolton's official matchday programme, 'The Wanderer' also on sale, fans will have plenty of opportunities to get merchandise signed by the pair!
 
So pop into Bolton Central prior to kick-off and meet the pair, before cheering on the Whites as they look to return to winning ways after the international break!
 
5. Deadline Day debutant
 
Bolton fans could get their first glimpse of Deadline Day signing Craig Noone this weekend with the wideman in line to make his Trotters debut.

Signing a two-year deal after joining from Cardiff City, the 29-year-old has impressed in his first week at training at Lostock.

With Bolton's 2017/18 home shirt available both in store at Bolton Central and online, you can personlise your shirt with 'Noone 12' and give the Trotters' latest signing a warm welcome against Middlesbrough this weekend!

I'm guessing 4-2-3-1 perhaps (maybe 4-1-4-1)

Change of keeper - Alnwick (who I think is probably that bit better than Howard)

Darby right back, Wheater, Beevers, Robinson

Derik defensive mid alone(?) or

with perhaps Pratley playing with him there or if not further forward as centre midfield with Karacan with Morais and Noone wide of him/them in midfield

with Madine up front.


Anybody think differently?

So here we are trailing at HT despite Parky switching to a more defensive system, but the real problem seems to be that we can't get forward or retain possession. But Boro are a top team so as long as we don't capitulate in the second half maybe, just maybe we'll have the basis of a team that can survive this season, providing we beat the likes of Burton and Brentford. Burke on. COYW!

Absolutely brilliant football on display today, some really impressive individual performances that were actually excellent to watch. It's just a shame they were all wearing red.

One team cost a bomb to build, the other just an amalgamation of freebies and loan signings and it wouldn't have taken a genius to work out which was which. I think Boro could have sent out their number 37 and maybe a few others alone and they'd have still beat our eleven.

Personally I'm starting to wonder if we'll win a game all season. I think we could maybe scrape a 1 nil against Burton in December, but must matches will just be damage limitation exercises.

Report: Bolton Wanderers 0-3 Middlesbrough

Wanderers suffered defeat against Middlesbrough in their latest Sky Bet Championship outing at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The deadlock was broken inside 13 minutes, with Britt Assombalonga nodding home from six yards out, before the striker doubled his and Boro's tally with 20 minutes remaining when tapping the ball into the net from a yard out.

It was a third for the visitors meanwhile with 12 minutes to go, with debutant Marvin Johnson's shot from the edge of the box squirming beneath Ben Alnwick to put a generous gloss on the result for Garry Monk's men.

TEAM NEWS

There were seven changes for Wanderers from the side who started against Hull City last time out, with Ben Alnwick coming in between the sticks and a debut for new signing Craig Noone amongst the XI.

FIRST HALF

The game started brightly in the sunshine at Macron Stadium, with both the Whites and Boro enjoying possession in their opponents’ boxes.

And the first real chance of the game fell to Wanderers, with Gary Madine taking the ball down on his chest on the edge of the box before turning and unleashing a thunderous effort on goal, only for Darren Randolph to parry his stinging shot away from danger with seven minutes on the clock.

There was certainly a bite to the game too, with Jem Karacan being shown the first yellow of the encounter for a feisty challenge just outside the Middlesbrough penalty area.

The deadlock was broken in the 13th minute however as, following some dogged determination down the right flank, Adama Traore crossed the ball for Assombalonga to nod home from six yards out.

It was Boro’s first real opportunity of the game, Traore was proving instrumental for the visitors with a number of mazy runs into the box thereafter.

Wanderers were having to be on their guard, but they were still enjoying chances of their own from set-pieces, while Derik even attempted an audacious overhead kick when eight yards out from goal.

As the half wore on, Bolton were finding their feet a little more and were able to exert their own pressure on the visitors after being under the cosh for much of the opening quarter.

Middlesbrough were still looking a constant threat on the counter attack, with the combination of Traore and Assombalonga constantly a thorn in Bolton’s sides.

Despite their pressure however, Alnwick was rarely called upon to make any saves of note.

The tasty atmosphere continued too as the half drew to its conclusion, with Traore lucky to escape with a yellow card for a harsh challenge on Filipe Morais which left the winger requiring treatment.

Come the break however, Wanderers were still a goal down.

SECOND HALF

The start of the second period saw the home side make one change, with Reece Burke coming into the mix in place of Stephen Darby.

And it was Bolton who looked the brighter of the two sides inside the opening stages, with them enjoying all the pressure and in meaningful positions.

Against the run of play though, Alnwick was forced to palm Assombalonga's angled drive around the post with it seemingly destined for the bottom corner of the net.

Cyrus Christie also spurned a glorious chance from six yards, only to lift the ball high and wide under pressure from David Wheater.

For the most part however, Bolton were looking the more dangerous side and they almost had an equaliser on the hour mark when Morais' shot was parried by Randolph, with Noone unable to turn the ball home when losing his footing just six yards out.

It seemed to be just the tonic needed in Wanderers' search for a foothold in the game, with Wheater seeing his half-volley from a Madine knock-down blocked just inside the box shortly after.

On the counter attack however, the visitors doubled their advantage with Traore again teeing up Assombalonga who slid in at the far post to tap the ball home for his second of the game.

A bitter blow for the Whites who had looked like possibly levelling prior to Boro's second, they set about looking for a route back into the clash with Madine seeing a tame header collected by Randolph with 14 minutes remaining.

Again though, Middlesbrough countered and were rewarded with a third goal of the afternoon through debutant Marvin Johnson whose piledriver from the edge of the box squirmed beneath Alnwick in the Bolton goal.

There was still time for Madine to test Randolph's reflexes with a well-taken half volley eight yards out with two minutes left, while Assombalonga came within inches of completing his hat-trick with a close-range header that was always rising.

Come full time however, there had been no further goals as Wanderers fell to defeat.
