Ref Watch: Graham Scott to officiate this weekend's clash with Swansea City

Graham Scott will take charge of Wanderers’ Sky Bet Championship home clash against Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.

In his thirteenth season as a top flight referee, Scott has officiated five games so far this year, in which he has produced ten yellow cards and sent one player off.

When looking towards last season, Scott produced 80 yellow cards in 30 games, branding five red cards in total.

The last time Scott was in charge of a Whites match was in April 2018, where he oversaw Wanderers 2-0 away defeat to Burton Albion.

In that fixture, Scott booked four players, two of which were Wanderers' players Mark Beevers and Darren Pratley.

Simon Long and Matthew Wilkes will run the line for the fixture, with Peter Bankes as fourth official.

I can't see us scoring, never mind winning.

I want to win, but if we're going to lose I hope we lose big to send Parky on his way.

Preview: Bolton Wanderers v Swansea City

This weekend, Bolton Wanderers take on Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship.

With that being said, bwfc.co.uk have picked out five talking points ahead of tomorrow's fixture.

1. Armistice Day

The game against Swansea City marks our annual Remembrance Day match and with it being 100 years since the end of World War One, Wanderers will be marking the occasion with the following:

On Wednesday, the club planted two trees adjacent to the Nat Lofthouse statue, in memory of two Wanderers players William Wallace and Harold Greenhalgh who lost their lives in World War One serving our country. This is in association with the Woodland Trust, National Football Museum and various governing bodies as a part of the “Football Remembers” project.

A commemorative coin has been commissioned as part of the 100 year anniversary and will be used at the coin toss and will be passed to the referee by a member of the armed forces. It will be auctioned off after the game, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.

The players will all be wearing customised poppy themed shirts to mark the occasion and they will also be auctioned off with the monies going to the Royal British Legion.

Volunteers from the Royal British Legion will also be outside the University of Bolton Stadium and dotted around the inside of the ground to raise money.

At approximately 2.50pm; a guard of honour will be made to honour the members of the military in attendance and their families.

Club Chaplain Phil Mason will read the Ode to Remembrance, before a minutes silence will take place prior to kick off.

We highly advise all fans attending tomorrow’s game against Swansea City to be in their seats by 2:50pm for this Act of Remembrance.

2. Ticket Offer

Bolton Wanderers season ticket holders can still bring a friend, family member or colleague to the Sky Bet Championship match against Swansea City this Saturday at the University of Bolton Stadium for just £10 per ticket.

*Tickets MUST be purchased by the season ticket holder and must produce their season card when buying in person from Bolton Central or their client reference number (CRN) when buying via the phone lines.

3. Another Newly-Relegated Opponent

Following on from our last game against Aston Villa, we take on another recently relegated side from the top flight of English football.

Currently sat ninth in the Sky Bet Championship, the Swans have kept a core amount of their recently demoted side, whilst making some additions.

Brought in from Nottingham Forest was midfielder Barrie McKay for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year deal.

The Scottish international had a glittering career during his time at Rangers, winning the Scottish Third Division, Championship and Challenge Cup with the Gers.

On a personal note, McKay played himself into the Scottish Championship PFA Team of the Year in 2015/16.

Bersant Celina signed for the Swans from Manchester City on a permanent basis in the summer.

The Kosovan international has experience out on loan in the top level of Dutch football with FC Twente, as well as in this division with Ipswich Town during the 2017/18 season.

He scored his first goal for Swansea against the Tractor Boys in October 2018.

Young striker Joel Asoro signed from Sunderland back in July 2018, penning a four-year deal.

The Swedish youth international spent the majority of his development career in his native Sweden at the likes of IFK Haninge and IF Brommapojkarna before joining Sunderland in 2015.

He broke into the first team a year later, making his professional debut against Middlesbrough as a second half substitute, becoming Sunderland’s and Sweden’s youngster Premier League player.

4. Squad Update

During Thursday’s press conference in preview on the Swansea City home clash, assistant manager Steve Parkin spoke to bwfc.co.uk and gave an update on the squad.

When asked about Sammy Ameobi’s inclusion, Parkin said: “Sammy has had a good week of training. He was a little behind the eight ball before the Villa game.

“He had a reasonable weekend after it and he will certainly come into contention.”

When asked about the rest of the team, he said: “There are no fresh injury concerns. We have had a couple bumps and bruises in the week but nothing serious.”

“Everybody is alright and they have all trained today [Thursday].”

5. Graham Potter

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

In June 2018, Potter was appointed manager of Swansea City, signing a three-year contract with the Welsh club.

In his playing days, Potter made over 300 appearances for the likes of Birmingham City, Stoke City, York City and Macclesfield Town.

After retiring in 2005, the former England Under-21 international went to the Open University and graduated with a degree in Social Sciences.

Following work with the University of Hull, Leeds Metropolitan University and England Universities squads, Potter was appointed manager of Swedish side Ostersunds FK who were in the fourth tier of Swedish football at the time.

He achieved two successive promotions before managing to get the club into the Allsvenskan (top flight of Swedish football) after just five years in the job.

After winning the Svenska Cupen in 2017, this granted Potter’s side a berth in the UEFA Europa League for the 2017/18 season which was a first for Ostersunds.

His side went onto beat English giants Arsenal in the competition away from home, however they were eliminated 4-2 on aggregate.

I dislike calling for a manager to be sacked but I think it's now time to do it. Phil did well in getting us back into the Championship and he deserves credit for keeping us there but even though he's still operating on a shoe string the fact is the results are not good enough. We an play decent football but we can't finish and whether we like it or not the truth is the player's confidence is on the floor and Phil doesn't seem to have a clue how to change that. His constant tinkering with the line up and his frankly awful 'style' of play only makes the problem worse. I really wish he'd resign and keep his dignity intact but if he won't then Ken must bite the bullet and get rid now. We've got a month or so before the next transfer window which should give a new manager time to assess the players we already have and to identify realistic targets to help make the changes that everyone can see we desperately need.

Team is underperforming and being outmanaged by opposition.  KA has an investment and is he willing to spend in January or replace Parky?  Otherwise, we are back to League One... can't score in a brothel I'm afraid.

One outweighs the other obs, he sacks Parkinson now we have a chance to avoid relegation, keep Parkinson we go down and Kens cash cow is flushed down the bog.

Hi Peter,

The problem with the January transfer window is that the transfer price for players are a lot more inflated.

I doubt we have even very little money and I can't see us being able to afford anyone in January and we will most likely be reliant on some short term loan deals if we can tempt anyone to join us.

Parkinson is changing the team so much where he isn't giving the team time to gel together.

This is a big problem for me as players need game time together to get things going.

It shows as desperation with him chopping and changing and shows he hasn't a clue.

I find it odd that the assistant has done the pre match interview this game so maybe he is up for the chop perhaps?

Missed the game as I’m in Thailand area for a month or so, but the result was expected. Did they show anything that suggested that we can overcome Anderson ‘s chronic lack of investment or is it all doom and gloom and blaming parky for not working miracles with a weak hand?

Report: Bolton Wanderers 0-1 Swansea City

Team News

Phil Parkinson made two changes from the starting eleven that lined up against Aston Villa, seeing Sammy Ameobi return for Craig Noone and Mark Beevers came in for David Wheater.

First Half

The first chance of the game came on 14 minutes, as a deflected Swansea shot fell to Oli McBurnie. The forward unleashed an effort on goal from close range but Mark Beevers put his body on the line to block it.

The resulting corner saw a well worked move from Graham Potter’s side nearly catch out the Whites, before it fell to midfielder Barrie McKay 25 yards away from the goal.

He produced a thunderbolt like strike which sailed into the top left corner, a wonder goal from former Nottingham Forest man.

Ten minutes later and Joe Williams played in Erhun Oztumer, who took range from the edge of the area but saw his effort fly inches away from the back of the net.

Swansea responded with a chance of their own, as a Dan James cross found Bersant Celina unmarked in the area with the goal at his mercy.

However, the tricky midfielder saw his shot fly over the crossbar.

With seven minutes to go in the first period, Sammy Ameobi nearly had Wanderers back in the game.

The Nigerian wide man drifted into the middle of the pitch and smashed the crossbar from all of 25 yards, leaving goalkeeper Mulder rooted to the spot.

In added time, Oztumer and Donaldson combined on the counter attack, before the Jamaican international hit a curled effort from just outside the area which had the keeper beat, but just missed the target.

Second Half

Six minutes after the restart and Wanderers should have had their equaliser.

Will Buckley teed up Andrew Taylor, as the fullback delivered a low driven cross into Joe Williams.

The tenacious midfielder couldn’t get it out of his feet, but his touch found Amoebi at the back post, but his effort went wide of the mark from six yards.

Oztumer went onto dispossess Leroy Fer in the middle of the pitch on the 55th minute and run at the Swansea defence at pace.

After opening up onto his left foot, he took effort at Mulder’s goal but couldn’t beat the man in between the sticks.

Ameobi was causing havoc once again after returning to the Wanderers lineup, cutting in from the right flank in his trademark fashion before stinging Mulder’s gloves from 25 yards.

Twelve minutes left on the clock and Ameobi was at it again from distance, following a bit of intricate passing play between Williams and himself.

The effort whistled just over the Swans’ crossbar.

Heading into the last bit of action in the clash and second half substitute Craig Noone nicked the ball off Wilfried Bony on the edge of the Swansea area, to then go perilously close with his right foot to equalising for Wanderers.

Phil Parkinson’s men kept banging on the door for the equaliser until the end of proceedings, but Graham Potter’s men saw it out until the final whistle.

Full Time

Wanderers XI: Alnwick (C), Taylor (Doidge 81), Lowe, Beevers, Oztumer, Donaldson (Magennis 67), Ameobi, Buckley (Noone 67), Hobbs, Olkowski, J.Williams,

Unused substitutes: Matthews, Vela, Grounds, Wheater

A team constantly being changed usually means a team in crisis and that is what we are.

 The first thing i look for when placing a bet is a settled team. PP does not know his best 11 despite being months into the season. And if one up front produces the statistics that we presently have, then surely playing two up front at home can only show an improvement our goals for are an embarrassment.

Agreed Wessy. our 'tactics' seems to choke off any freedom of play in the last third, always seemingly holding the players back for the counter-attack.

The only memorable thing about todays game was Ameobi's shot against the crossbar. Two things struck me about todays game.
Firstly, how easy it is to play against us. All you need is  mobility- get your players up and down the park and you can contain a toothless Bolton. They're like the Italian army- rather go backwards than forwards.
The second thing , and I think todays game confirms this, is that we really have a set of mediocre plyers. It's no wonder that other clubs have shown them the door. Few of them can control a ball, tackle cleanly or pass over any distance. So many long balls went directly to their players or out for goalkicks.  We have hardly any shots from distance- and that's what we need as we have no guile in the box.
As regards our 'strikers' - they might have been good once but now they're just industrious carthorses and even the addition of Doidge doesn't help matters.
The way we are now I don't think we'll score a dozen goals before the end of the season. We simply can't rely on our 'strikers' to score.
Unless a miracle happens we have found our correct and justified place in the league table and we'll be in the same place at the end of the season

The manager has to go.

No quality, no spirit, no urgency, no fucking goals.

This squad have had every attacking instinct slowly squeezed out of them with this shitty defensive mentality.

But fuck me, for a defensive team we a fucking crap at defending. Even Olkowski seems to have lowered himself to default BWFC standards.

We miss Karl Henry big time. We don't have a leader, it's just 11 strangers running around like headless chickens.

Henry, Morais & Le Fondre all released and not a single replacement is fit to lace their boots.

Come on Ken, get rid of Parky tonight. Don't give him another transfer window to bring in even more dross.
