Barnsley have a midweek away trip to reading to cope with before they visit the Reebok at the weekend but I still reckon we won't have enough to win it despite the "must -win" nature of the game. I'm thinking a draw.

On the basis that both teams can't lose, then I'll go for 2-1 and Armstrong

If by any chance we find ourselves 2-0 up at halftime. Can we kill the game off by scoring a 3rd maybe 4 th. Sitting back does not work QPR,Reading, We we’re lucky Norwich scored in 94 th minute also the Referee did not give Sheff W a penalty at 2-1. When pegged back we go all out Attack for the final minutes. Why not try score 3 n win it outright. FFS Parkinson we are not good enough to defend a full half without conceding when ahead.

After Reading stuffed Barnsley on Tuesday they are 6 places and 7 points above us so draws aren't enough for us if we want to climb up this mini league at the bottom especially as the teams around are intent on doing exactly the same thing. Sunderland have already picked up their first win under Coleman so we can't depend on others losing all the time and equally we can't rely on our luck.
What we can do is start winning our home games and show a bit more resilience away, but it's going to be a tough slog but if we can better the teams in the bottom half of the league, starting with Barnsley, we may just still have a chance. But it has to be 3 points, however we get them.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Barnsley

As Wanderers host Barnsley on Saturday afternoon in their latest league outing, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the Whites' Sky Bet Championship clash with the Tykes.

1. Home form

Wanderers head into this weekend's game with Barnsley unbeaten in their last four matches at Macron Stadium.

Picking up maximum points against Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich City, the Whites have only been denied maximum points by Queens Park Rangers and Reading, with both sides scoring late on to snatch a share of the spoils at BL6.

2. Bouncing back

Having been seven games unbeaten prior to last weekend's defeat to Wolves, Phil Parkinson's men are certainly determined to bounce back at the first time of asking.

They will come up against a Barnsley side meanwhile who have lost their last three games in the Sky Bet Championship, including a 3-0 midweek reverse at the hands of Reading on their travels.

And with just seven points separating the Whites and the Reds, this Saturday's meeting could see that gap narrowed should the Trotters pick up maximum points come full time.

3. Defensive reshuffle?

With David Wheater suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Wolves, this leaves the manager with a conundrum in terms of who will come into the fray in his place.

Reece Burke, Derik Osede, Stephen Darby and Dorian Dervite are all possibilities, with Burke in particular no doubt hungry to feature again on home soil after opening his goalscoring account for the club in his last outing at Macron Stadium against Reading.

4. Last chance to buy Wanderers' Festive Bundle

Fans have until 3pm on Saturday to purchase a special Festive Bundle ticket deal for the club's home matches in December.

For just £65 supporters can watch the home games against Barnsley (Saturday 2 December), Burton Albion (Saturday 16 December) and Cardiff City (Saturday 23 December), which represents a maximum saving of £27 on the total price of buying the tickets individually.

Supporters aged over 65 and under 23 will pay just £50 for the bundle (a maximum saving of £24) while children under the age of £18 will pay £20 for the three-game deal (a saving of £11).

Supporters can choose any part of the stadium for one set price if purchased on or before the Barnsley game on Saturday 2 December.

The Festive Bundle can be bought in person at Bolton Central, over the telephone on 0844 871 2932 or online via [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

5. Former Tykes man upfront?

Saturday will see current Bolton loanee and match programme cover star Adam Armstrong come up against his former loan side Barnsley.

The striker spent the 2016/17 season at Oakwell, scoring six goals in 37 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit.

And having figured prominently for the Whites so far this term, he will be no doubt hoping to put his old side to the sword this weekend as Parkinson's charges aim to pull themselves out of the second tier's bottom three.

Report: Bolton Wanderers 3-1 Barnsley

Wanderers picked up all three points with a hard-earned victory over Barnsley at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The deadlock was broken with 20 minutes on the clock as Gary Madine bundled home Mark Little's cross, but the visitors were back level two minutes later through Tom Bradshaw's penalty kick.

Bolton's advantage was restored before the break however, with Madine slotting home from a spot-kick of his own, before assist provider Little got on the scoresheet with a superb individual effort in the 70th minute with the scoreline remaining as such come full time.

TEAM NEWS

Phil Parkinson made two changes to the starting line up with Reece Burke coming in for the suspended David Wheater, while Will Buckley came in for Adam Armstrong who was named among the substitutes.

FIRST HALF

Buckley saw plenty of the ball early on and his knock-down for Josh Vela presented the hosts with their first chance. However, the midfielder was unable to connect sufficiently with the volley.

Vela then put in a lovely cross for Gary Madine at the far post, but the striker was unable to direct his header past Adam Davies.

Wanderers’ early dominance paid off after 20 minutes when Madine bundled in Mark Little’s centre after the full back made a great run to the by-line.

The visitors’ put themselves back into the contest two minutes later when Tom Bradshaw converted from the spot after Reece Burke was harshly adjudged to have committed the foul.

Wanderers were back in front just before the break when they won a penalty themselves. The lively Buckley was upended and it took an age for referee Oliver Langford to point to the spot. But Madine made no mistake as he sent Davies the wrong way with an emphatic low strike.

SECOND HALF

After a sluggish start to the second half, Ben Alnwick was pressed into making a full stretch save to keep out George Moncour’s effort after the midfielder was allowed time and space in the Wanderers box.

Wanderers survived a goalmouth scramble after Mark Beevers’ lost his footing in a dangerous area. Ben Alnwick was at his most agile as he kept out several attempts before the ball was eventually thumped clear off the line.

Full back Jason McCarthy was the next Barnsley player to test Alnwick as the Wanderers ‘keeper got his body in the way of the defender’s drive at the expense of a corner.

The Tykes were firmly in the ascendancy and seemed determined to get back on terms.

Parkinson made his first substitution on the hour mark with Armstrong coming on for Buckley.

Wanderers’ third came in scintillating style and will probably be a goal of the season contender. It came from the unlikeliest of sources in Mark Little. The full back, who was having an exceptional game anyhow, went on a mazy run down the right flank before cutting in with his right foot and firing beyond Davies with an exquisite finish.

Just a minute later and Wanderers could have increased their advantage through substitute Armstrong who narrowly fired wide with a right footed curler.

Barnsley were still on the hunt for a second goal and Alnwick once again had to be alert to prevent Brad Potts from firing home.

With eight minutes remaining Craig Noone came ono to replace Sammy Ameobi.

Barnsley sub Mamadou Thiam was causing a nuisance and was the main source of the Tykes’ attacking threat going into the final stages of the game. He forced an important stop from Alnwick after creating space for himself.

Aaron Wilbraham was Wanderers’ third and final substitute when he replaced two-goal hero Madine with just five minutes remaining.

Despite seven minutes being indicated at the end of the regulation 90, the Whites could taste victory and set about keeping the Tykes at bay.

There was still time for heroics from Alnwick, with him somehow keeping Bradshaw's drive through a crowded penalty area out.

But come full time, the visitors just couldn't find a way through to force late drama with Wanderers running out deserved winners.
