Ref watch: Stephen Martin to oversee Norwich City clash

Stephen Martin will run the rule over Wanderers' Sky Bet Championship clash with Norwich City at Macron Stadium on Saturday.

Officiating his first Football League fixture in February 2011, the Staffordshire-based official established himself as a League One and League Two regular in the 2012/13 season while he also oversaw his first Championship fixture during the same campaign.

Taking charge of his first Wanderers outing the following season when the Whites took on Tranmere Rovers, he has manned four Whites fixtures to date including Bolton's home defeat to Derby County earlier in the season.

Mr Martin has run the rule over 15 games so far this season, dishing out 24 yellow cards and two red cards.

Matthew McGrath and Jonathan Hunt will run the line while Scott Duncan is the fourth official.

The local Norfolk media are - as usual - running stories on every aspect of the Canaries' situation but the theme that seems to be getting most traction is that "Bolton are confident despite being bottom of the league" which tends to veer towards "Bolton are cocky" in the body text.

The other theme is that if they win they will set a club record of six consecutive away wins having already beaten Sheffield United, Middlesborough, Reading, Ipswich and Brentford (Cup match) in their last 5 away games.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Norwich City

1. Unbeaten run

Wanderers head into Saturday's game unbeaten from their last four outings after picking up maximum points against Sheffield Wednesday before seeing late goals deny them victories against Queens Park Rangers, Fulham and Sunderland.

The Whites will be eager to record a positive result against Norwich City as they look to extend their unbeaten run heading into the November international break.

And with Phil Parkinson's men slowly narrowly the gap between themselves and the teams outside the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone, a victory for Bolton could see them at least climb off the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship table if other results go their way.

2. Last game before the international break

Time passes quickly in football. Look back to before the October international break and the Trotters were still searching for their first win of the season, finding goals and points hard to come by.

Now heading into the November international break off the back of an unbeaten month and boosted by the returns of a number of players from inury, Wanderers cannot wait to get back on the pitch as they look to climb the second tier table.

With morale high courtesy of recent results and performances despite their current league position, the Whites will be keen to carry on where they left ahead of a two-week break from league action.

3. Back at Macron Stadium

After two tough games on the road, Bolton return to Macron Stadium this weekend.

Following a 3-3 away draw against Sunderland in midweek and a 1-1 draw at Fulham last weekend, the Trotters will be keen to put on a strong display infront of their home fans as they return home for the first time in two weeks.

Last time out at the Macron, Wanderers fought out a 1-1 draw Queens Park Rangers as skipper Darren Pratley scored the only goal for the home side before Idrissa Sylla equalised late on for the R’s.

Now hoping to go one better against the Canaries, the Whites will be hungry to make home advantage count in their efforts to maintain their current momentum.

4. Remembrance Day fixture and signing session

Bolton Wanderers Football Club would like to encourage all supporters attending Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship match ato please take their seats for 2.50pm in order for everyone to be able to take part in the Act Of Remembrance which will take place just before kick-off.

The players shall be wearing poppies on their shirts and cadets will also be selling poppies ahead of the game.

The Club will also have military representatives as guests for the match from the 4th Battalion of Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and the 216 Battery Bolton Royal Artillery along with family members who have lost loved ones in recent conflicts.

The Club’s Chaplain Phil Mason will lead the Act of Remembrance and our military personnel guests will be invited back on to the pitch at half-time to draw the Golden Gamble.

Earlier in the day, at 2pm, in the UK Healthcare Suite, a wall within the suite that has images and photographs of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and other serving military personnel will be dedicated to be a lasting memorial to all those who have served and sacrificed in times of conflict.

If anyone would like to attend the short ceremony they are welcome. Please make your way to the UK Healthcare Suite which is located in the North Stand.

Elsewhere, Filipe Morais will be meeting and greeting supporters in Bolton Central from 1.30pm .

The Bolton No.22, who made the switch to the club earlier this year before agreeing a new deal in the summer, will be in attendance at the club's retail outlet ahead of this weekend's Sky Bet Championship clash with the Canaries.

Fans are encouraged to arrive in plenty of time if they are wishing to meet Morais who will be on hand to sign memorabilia and pose for photos.

5. Sammy Ameobi

After scoring three goals in his last four games, Sammy Ameobi was named in WhoScored.com’s October Team of the Month for the Championship.

Having fired home against Sheffield Wednesday, Fulham and Sunderland, the popular forward will be looking to add to his tally this weekend. If he were to score again, he would be outright top goal scorer at the club.

Could he again make the difference and help take the Trotters into the international break off the back of a victory?

Report: Bolton Wanderers 2-1 Norwich City

Wanderers ran out comfortable winners in their latest Sky Bet Championship clash against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon

Having found themselves under pressure inside the opening half hour of the clash, the Whites rode the storm and were rewarded in the 35th minute as Gary Madine tucked the ball home from a matter of yards out following superb work by skipper Darren Pratley.

And it was two just five minutes later, with Adam Armstrong’s delicious 20-yard first-time effort cannoning into the net via the inside of the post and although Josh Murphy halved the deficit in second half injury time, it was merely scant consolation as the Trotters ran out winners come full time.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers’ starting XI was unchanged from that which began against Sunderland in midweek, with the only change to the matchday 18 being the inclusion of Connor Hall amongst the substitutes in place of Adam Le Fondre.

FIRST HALF

The home side started brightly, with David Wheater seeing his half-volley from 12 yards deflect away for a corner kick inside the opening two minutes.

Buoyed by their early chance, the Whites continued to press forward when the chance to do so arose, while Norwich also enjoyed an opportunity which Cameron Jerome drilled right at Ben Alnwick from an acute angle.

The aforementioned Jerome came close again soon after, with his bobbled effort from just inside the penalty area skewing just wide of the upright.

Neither side was able to gain a real foothold in the game however, with goalmouth opportunities arriving in fits and spurts.

Christoph Zimmermann was next to enjoy a sight of goal, with his header from a corner rippling the side netting inside the opening quarter to the relief of Wanderers.

The visitors were certainly enjoying the majority of possession, but for the most part, they weren’t producing much of note in the final third.

Bolton then spurned the best opportunity of the game on the half hour mark, with Adam Armstrong unable to keep his header down after being found by Sammy Ameobi’s lofted ball into the area.

Ameobi himself came close soon after, with his drilled shot from the edge of the box rippling the side netting with half of Macron Stadium believing it to have gone in.

They didn’t have to wait long to break the deadlock however, with Pratley’s clever footwork inside the penalty area eventually leading to a cross which found Madine who cleverly tucked the ball away past Angus Gunn.

And just five minutes later, it was two for the Whites with Armstrong getting in on the action, curling the ball home from 20 yards out with it finding the back of the net via the inside of the post.

As the half drew to its conclusion, there was even time for Wanderers to come close to adding a third as Armstrong cut inside and unleashed a drive goalwards, but Gunn was down quickly to smother his effort.

But come the break, Phil Parkinson’s men still led by two goals to nil.

SECOND HALF

With no changes for either side at half time, proceedings got back underway as darkness began to fall at Macron Stadium.

And, as was to be expected, the visitors started with gusto as they looked for a route back into the clash, but were finding themselves coming up against a stubborn Bolton backline for the most part.

As the game reached its hour mark, Pratley tried his luck for Bolton on the half volley from 20 yards, but his shot failed to trouble Gunn between the sticks for Norwich.

The Canaries responded meanwhile with a double substitution, with one of those newcomers - Marley Watkins - slamming a shot into the side netting with 25 minutes to go.

For all their possession in Bolton territory however, City weren't really troubling Alnwick as the game headed into its final quarter.

The Whites certainly weren't ready to rest on their laurels either, with them pressing forward at every opportunity and Madine proving himself a handful for the Norwich defence.

Tempers were flaring inside the final throes of the clash, with a number of players from both sides picking up bookings for rash challenges.

Some superb link-up play between Josh Vela and Little with ten minutes remaining deserved more, but Gunn denied the latter at close range to keep the scoreline at just two.

The visitors came within inches of pulling themselves back into the clash with six minutes to go as Josh Murphy saw his initial shot saved by Alnwick, with the Norwich City man somehow putting the rebound wide with the goal at his mercy.

Victory was tantilisingly close for the Whites, with the Bolton faithful sensing so as they grew vocally in their support of the team.

Ameobi and Wanderers were left calling for a penalty on the stroke of full time as our No.10 was seemingly hauled down in the area, but referee Stephen Martin waved away the claims.

And with four minutes added on at the end of the regulation 90, it was last chance saloon for the visitors with Bolton putting everything on the line to defend their advantage.

Josh Murphy did halve the deficit deep into injury time with a close range effort, but it was scant consolation come full time as Wanderers ran out winners.

Good win. Shame about conceding at the end. Another shite ref.

Great to see John Byrom at HT.

And what happened to the minute's silence after the Last Post? Bit of a cock up.

Excellent win. Norwich may only be midtable but they clearly have quality.

The only negative - and it isn't to do with the performance itself - is what do we do if/when Ameobi gets injured again.

Yes there were other positives such as the likes of Madine putting a good shift in, but those things amount to jack shit without that bit of attacking quality that Ameobi brings.

You knew once the ref cocked up on the minutes silence that he would be pants, he didn't disappoint. Excellent today thought both full backs did well getting forward, and Ameobe just brings something very different to the table.

Good win over a strong side. we have averaged 1.8 points per game over the last 5 games, that's play off form, so IF we can keep it up we will be fine.
