I can't see us getting anything from this one.

Even before we lost Henry, Pratley and the West Ham boys, Brentford had been in better current form than us (during the period our form had improved from the signing of Henry as our only defensive midfielder in the whole team).

So even at our sustained best this season - Brentford have out performed us.

I've no idea what team Parkinson will pick either.

I'm guessing 4-5-1 though, with Little hopefully fit at right-back to replace Burke, maybe the Everton lad we just signed playing attacking midfield - just behind Madine, with Vela and Derik playing defensive midfield and Noone and Ameobi on the wings?

Can anyone see a better set up with the players we have?

Midfield is going to be an issue definitely. I thought Vela and Cullen did well in the game when Henry and Pratley went off but Cullen has gone now. I suspect he will stay with a 4231 and play Vela and maybe Derik as the holding midfielders with Ameobi, Buckley or Noone and Morais in front of them.

I'd be surprised to see the new lad start but you never know. I did predict a draw on the prediction thread but don't be surprised to see me change it before tomorrow.

I think we'll get dicked.

The team will be:

Alnwick

Little - Wheater - Dershite - Beevers - Robinson

Morais - Vela - Derek - Buckley

Madine

Not sure which way it will go as Brentford have been a mixed bag recently. They lost to Wolves last time out but prior to that had some good wins against decent sides. However, Barnsley managed to get a draw at Griffin Park and Hull beat them so maybe they don't do so well against struggling sides? 

If we play to our top form we may have a chance but I'm going with 1 - 1.

That may not be good enough to keep us out of the bottom 3 as Burton are playing QPR and Hull have Reading.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Brentford v Bolton Wanderers

As Wanderers return to league action this weekend in the capital away at Brentford, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of Saturday's clash at Griffin Park.

1. Winning run

Wanderers return to league action on Saturday afternoon following an almost two-week break from the Sky Bet Championship, but they do so having won their last two outings against Sheffield United and Hull City.

Last Saturday's narrow Emirates FA Cup defeat to Huddersfield is the only blemish on the Whites' recent form, with Phil Parkinson's men's attentions now solely focused on their domestic exploits.

Can the Trotters make it a hat-trick of league victories come the final whistle this Saturday?

2. Back on the road

Following back-to-back home games in league and cup, Wanderers head back out on their travels this weekend for the first time in a fortnight.

Last time out on the road however they managed to secure their first away league victory of the campaign down at Bramall Lane, and will no doubt be keen to follow that result up with another in the capital this Saturday.

3. Harry Charsley

Having made the switch to Macron Stadium on Friday on loan from Everton for the rest of the season, could Saturday see a first Bolton appearance for midfielder Harry Charsley?

The 21-year-old has already figured in the Europa League for the Toffees this season, making his debut for the Merseysiders in their game against Apollon Limassol in December.

And following on from fellow youngster Connor Hall's maiden Bolton appearance against Huddersfield Town last Saturday afternoon, there could be another debutant in the Whites' ranks this weekend.

4. Injury news

There are no fresh injury concerns from last weekend's outing in the Emirates FA Cup, but Karl Henry and Darren Pratley remain sidelined with their respective knocks which they picked up against Hull City on New Year's Day.

With a number of players coming into the fray last time out meanwhile in the cup and putting in impressive performances, the manager will no doubt have food for thought when it comes to his team selection.

5. Pay on the day

Bolton Wanderers fans will be able to purchase tickets on the day of the match for this Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash away at Brentford.

Supporters will then only be able to buy tickets directly from window number 4 at the Ticket Office on Braemar Road at Griffin Park on Saturday.

Tickets will be sold from noon onwards and can be paid for with cash or debit/credit card.

There will however be a £5 price increase for all age bands on the day, excluding U18s which will remain at the advanced price.

Any supporters who have organised for their tickets to be sent to Brentford for collection or have their tickets duplicated, will also be left at the Ticket Office Collection Point.

On-the-day prices are as follows:

Terrace Prices

Adults - £28
Over-65s - £22
Under-25s - £20
Under-18s - £6

Seated Prices

Adults - £30.50
Over-65s - £23.50
Under-25s - £21.50
Under-18s - £6

I'd forgotten that Griffin Park still has two terraces. Not sure how that squares with the Taylor Report. They also have a pub on all four corners of the ground. Missed a trick there when the Macron was designed Smile

4-0 Lusty... feel better now?  -17 GD for Sundy... could have been more... 9 shots on target for Cardiff to none.  Let's hope we can hold our own today and steal one point.

A lot better. That final goal means we start our game level on GD at -18 so if we can avoid defeat we'll have a bit of breathing space between us and one of the teams below us. The rest are breathing down our necks.

Report: Brentford 2-0 Bolton Wanderers

Wanderers' winning run in the league came to a halt after they bowed out to goals from Florian Jozefzoon and Neal Maupay against Brentford.

The frontman netted the opener just after the interval before a late cheeky backheel from substitute Maupay gave the Bees the maximum points on a cold afternoon in London.

Team News

Harry Charsley was handed his debut for Bolton Wanderers just 24 hours after signing on loan from Everton. Karl Henry and Darren Pratley, who both got injuries in Wanderers’ last league outing – the 1-0 victory against Hull City, were replaced by Josh Vela and Derik Osede in the engine room.

First Half

After a spritely start from both sides, the hosts had the game’s first effort on 13 minutes when Florian Jozefzoon flashed a volley wide from close range.

Yoann Barbet had an opportunity from a free-kick but his header went high over Bel Alnwick’s cross bar.

The hosts were getting a foothold on the game as the half wore on and Alnwick had to be sharp to get hold of Barbet’s dangerous looking cross.

The deadlock was broken five minutes before the break courtesy of a decisive right-footed drive from Jozefzoon. The goal had a sense of inevitability about it and spurred the Bees on to finish the half on top.

Madine, with his back to goal after receiving a smart pass from Sammy Ameobi, saw his shot deflect for a throw in but that was as good as it got for the visitors in the opening 45 minutes.

Second Half

Barely a minute into the second-half and Wanderers had a half-chance to restore parity but Derik’s effort from distance cannoned off a team-mate to go out for a goal-kick.

Brentford should have doubled their lead through Jozefzoon on 49 minutes when some smart play carved open Wanderers’ backlinie, but Alnwick pulled off a sensational save to prevent the frontman from getting his brace.

Phil Parkinson made his first change on 54 minutes when Will Buckley replace the debutant Charsley.

Captain Nico Yennaris hit the foot of Alnwick’s right hand stick from distance as Brentford tried to increase their advantage.

David Bentley, the Bees ‘keeper, somehow got his body to keep out a close range effort from Gary Madine after Antonee Robinson’s probing run resulted in a defensive mix-up.

Adam Le Fondre came on for Filipe Moriais with just over 20 minutes to go to give Wanderers a fresher impetus up front.

Buckley had a chance on goal after Ameobi drifted in from the right but the sub’s effort lacked the power to trouble Bentley.

Wanderers’ final change of the afternoon came when Aaron Wilbraham replaced Mark Little with little over six minutes of the contest remaining.

Any hopes of a revival were dashed when substitute Maupays impudent backheel sealed the points for the hosts.

On the bright side, we are not in the bottom three. I've officially given up hope of promotion, though.

It's very disappointing that the new signing was subbed less than an hour into the defeat.Ken said that he'd only sign players who were good enough and fit enough to go straight into the first team and produce.

Parky fucked up here. You can't bring a young boy with absolutely no professional experience into a side locked in a relegation battle.

I can't believe he couldn't find an experienced head, even if he was well into his 30's, who could do a similar job to Henry. But we shouldn't be surprised, Parky isn't exactly quick at identifying our weaknesses.

Having spoken to a few fans who went to the game I get the impression that most pretty much accept the defeat as getting beaten by a better side as though it was to be expected and therefore nothing to worry about. I could go along with this if we were comfortably mid table with no relegation worries, but under the circumstances - and despite having a few injuries to cope with - I just don't think it was good enough. Three of our next 4 games are at home but they are against Ipswich, Bristol City and Fulham (12th, 5th and 8th currently) with an away trip to Cardiff (3rd) thrown in. Should we accept defeat against all of them who are clearly better sides than us? I don't think so. If we have any chance of survival Parky has to find a way to get points from every game regardless of who we are playing against.
One of my sons put some positive spin on our position by saying we are in a mini-league of 6 teams who are all within 5 points of each other for relegation so as only 3 get relegated we have a 50% chance of survival. Add to that the fact that we are currently out of the bottom three and the possibility of other teams getting dragged into to it and there is a statistical case to say we have more chance of surviving than going down. This is BWFC though. If there's a chance of cocking it up, we'll take it.
Sort it out Parky.
