Ref watch: Simon Hooper takes the whistle for Preston trip

Simon Hooper is set to take charge of Wanderers' trip to Preston North End on Friday.

Taking charge of his twelfth Whites game in total, the Wiltshire-based official first took charge of a Bolton game in December 2012 when the Trotters beat Birmingham City 3-1 while his last Wanderers match was their Carabao Cup defeat West Ham United back in September.

Predominantly overseeing Sky Bet Championship fixtures last season, he ran the rule over 43 games including the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final, handing out 149 yellow cards and three red cards.

Meanwhile, Mr Hooper has refereed 17 games so far this season, dishing out 49 yellow cards and one red card.

Akil Howson and Daniel Robathan will run the line while Geoff Eltringham is the fourth official.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Preston North End v Bolton Wanderers

1. Football is back

Club football after the final international break of the calendar year as Wanderers travel to local-rivals Preston North End on Friday night.

Last time out, the Whites claimed a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Norwich City to move off the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship and extend their recent unbeaten run.

Now looking to pick up where they left off, Bolton will be keen to return to action with a bang knowing victory could take them out of the second tier's bottom three if other results go their way.

2. Unbeaten run

The Trotters head into Friday's trip to Deepdale unbeaten from their last five outings.

Picking up maximum points against Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich City, Wanderers have only late goals to curse for stalemates against Queens Park Rangers, Fulham and Sunderland.

Despite the November international break temporarily halting momentum, the Whites' recent form sees them confident as they go in search of a first away win of the season.

And while Bolton have not won on the road at this level since April 2015, could that all be about to change on Friday night? Only time will tell.

3. Local derby

Having fought out many memorable encounters with a number of their North West rivals in Sky Bet League One last season, local derby clashes in the Sky Bet Championship are few and far between for the Trotters this year.

With Preston their only neighbours at this level, excitement is high heading into the game with local bragging rights up for grabs.

Facing off under the lights in front of the cameras with over 3,000 away fans making the trip, the scene is set for a pulsating match on Friday night.

And with North End in need off three points themselves after a recent injury crisis coincided with a slump in form, both sides will have plenty to play for come the first whistle on Friday.

4. Live on Sky Sports

Friday night's game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports as Wanderers and Preston lock horns at Deepdale.

Phil Parkinson's men will be looking to make a point in front of the TV cameras, having been written off by many one month ago following the conclusion of the last international break.

With limited meetings between the two sides since the Whites' Play-Off Final victory over Preston in 2001, the last clash between them at Deepdale was also broadcast live on Sky Sports back in October 2015.

However fans, television audiences and broadcasters will be hoping for a little more entertainment this time around following a 0-0 draw that day.

Overseas-based iFollow BWFC should note that Friday night's game is a blacklisted fixture as a result and will not be shown live on the service.

Live audio commentary is available, while a full match replay of the game will also be on offer for all subscribers regardless of location the day after the game.

5. Pay on the day

Tickets will be available to purchase on the night at Deepdale.

Kicking off at 7.45pm, travelling supporters will be able to buy tickets directly from the Away Ticket Office, which is located at the Bill Shankly Kop End at Deepdale and opens at 6pm.

There will be no price increase on the night and with cash and card payments accepted.

Any supporters who have organised for their tickets to be duplicated will also be able to pick their tickets up from the Away Ticket Office.

Advance tickets remain on sale directly from Bolton Central or via the phonelines (0844 871 2932 (option 2 then option 1)) until midday on the day of the game with prices as follows:

Adults - £24

Over-65s - £16

Under-22s - £15

Student - £15

Under-19s - £8

Under-11s - £2 (Must be bought with full-paying adult)

Seeing that Preston could be without 7 first team defenders and 2 strikers and that their current form is awful has made me change my mind, i think we can win this. I reckon a 2-1 away win to the Super Whites

Tonight is one of those games where I think that having the opportunity to get out of the relegation zone will put pressure on the players - more so than when we were at rock bottom and expectations were lower. I just hope they haven't lost the momentum we had before the international break and come out firing.

Boring game yes, but the fitness and grit in the team now gives a lot of hope. Both teams were short on quality but as I said the year we came down you get a long way in the Championship by being fit and organised both of which we looked tonight. 

6 games unbeaten is a great achievement considering where we've come from, and the hand Parky's been dealt makes it all the more impressive. Onwards and upwards.

A point is fine but we could still be back to bottom of the league by tea time tomorrow.
And Sunderland are likely to get the new manager bounce thing over the next month or so and will probably reinforce using Coleman's contacts in January. We need to win some games starting with Reading because we're not likely to get much away at Wolves,

Report: Preston North End 0-0 Bolton Wanderers

Wanderers extended their unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship to six games with a goalless draw away at Preston North End on Friday evening.

The Whites did enjoy opportunities to win the game with Adam Armstrong coming closest, but they were forced to settle for a point come the final whistle at Deepdale.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers named an unchanged starting XI from the side who turned out against Norwich City prior to the international break, with Connor Hall amongst the Whites' substitutes.

FIRST HALF

The game started brightly, with Karl Henry receiving a booking inside two minutes for a challenge deemed worthy of a yellow card by referee Simon Hooper.

And the Whites were soon under the cosh from the home side, with North End seeing an effort somehow elude the goalmouth after flying across Ben Alnwick’s in the sixth minute.

The lively start continued, but it was pressure which was falling more so in the home side’s favour as Wanderers remained in their own third of the pitch for the most part.

Callum Robinson then came close to opening the scoring in the 14th minute as he attempted to flick the ball home from a corner, but his effort flew inches wide of the far post.

That was followed up by a deft Paul Huntington header from a free-kick on the edge of the box which was narrowly wide of the goalmouth.

A much-needed breather followed for Phil Parkinson’s men, with some form of respite coming in the form of forays upfield and into Preston’s own third of the pitch.

Alex Neil’s side were still looking a threat on the break however, with Wanderers having to be on their guard.

Stephy Mavididi was next to come close for the hosts, with his glancing header flying inches wide on the half hour mark.

The Whites saw their best chance of the game fall to Josh Vela soon after, with the midfielder’s shot from the edge of the box being tipped over the crossbar by Chris Maxwell.

The opportunity seemed to be just the tonic for Wanderers, with Adam Armstrong seeing his angled drive collected by the Preston keeper shortly after.

Bolton’s pressure continued, with Sammy Ameobi a constant threat for Parkinson’s men.

And as the half drew to its conclusion, neither side was able to break the deadlock as the first period finished goalless.

SECOND HALF

With no changes at the break for either side, the clash got back underway under the floodlights with Wanderers attacking towards their 3,300+ strong away following for the second period.

And the Whites came out all guns blazing, with the hosts under pressure from the off while David Wheater saw his free-kick fail to trouble Maxwell.

The hosts were soon back on the attack themselves however, with a free-kick - which saw Ameobi booked for the initial foul - thundering into the Bolton wall inside the first ten minutes of the second period.

It was very much end-to-end at Deepdale, while Henry saw an effort from 20 yards out always rising on the hour mark.

Wanderers saw a succession of chances go begging soon after too, with Armstrong seeing his show following a mazy run into the area palmed away while Antonee Robinson proved himself a nuisance down the left flank.

The 71st minute of the game saw the first change for Bolton too, with Armstrong being replaced with Will Buckley.

And he almost made an immediate impact, with his dangerous ball across goal being cleared away at the death while Henry's thunderbolt from 20 yards from the resulting corner was just over the crossbar.

Wanderers were looking confident on the ball and with each passing attack, they appeared to be edging closer and closer to a goal.

North End weren't quite finished themselves though, with substitute Daniel Johnson looking lively for the home side.

With five minutes to go, the Whites made another change in the form of Filipe Morais who replaced Vela.

The game was far from over despite the clock ticking down, and with four minutes of time added on, it was all hands to the pump for Wanderers with Ameobi's mazy run into the mix deserving more.

Come full time however, the spoils were shared.

Good point and much improved second half performance after a poor first half. Our blatant hoofball tactics are really embarrassing though. Don't know why Parky insists on playing this way as it never gets us anywhere anyway. Just ends up surrendering posession to the opposition every time. All our best moments come from genuine bits of individual skill from the likes of Ameobi, Armstrong, Morais etc.

I kind of expected a dip in performance after playing with so much confidence and freedom against Norwich so I'm glad we got away with a point, but we have to get it back for the Reading game which surely has to be targeted as a must win game.
