Loss written all over it - but there may be hope?
Cambridge top of the league and Paul Mullin is on a phenomenal 10 goals from 7 games (highest in any european league). I've been watching him and he looks nothing special but the lad can't stop scoring.
Most of the goals he's scored I reckon Doyler would have got if given the same chances.
But, there's a couple pf players coming back from injuries, Evatt is as always, hopeful, there are signs that we can be fluent at times and it's really just a matter of putting it all together during the course of a match.
The obvious play would be for Cambridge to attack from the off in order to get the early goal....assume we're prepared for that but I suspect the key thing will be how we transition from defence to attack, the bodies that get forward and quality interchange. Evatt believes we can do it so maybe all is not lost?

Preview: Cambridge United vs Bolton Wanderers

Wanderers are back on the road with an away fixture against league leaders Cambridge United on Saturday afternoon. Ian Evatt’s men are looking to build on a point earned at Barrow during the week thanks to Antoni Sarcevic’s last gasp equaliser.

Pre-Match Quotes:

Ian Evatt: ‘Fair play to them, they’ve started great and scored a lot of goals, but it’s a good opportunity for us to go and show what we’re about. It’s another game of football and another chance for us to go and win. Why not?

‘If I was my defenders and goalkeeper, I’d be thinking we’re up against a good attack here let’s try and keep a clean sheet. One clean sheet in ten isn’t good enough. I said that to them this morning. Let’s go there, do the best we can and hopefully get the three points.’

Mark Bonner: ‘It will be a difficult game. We won’t be fooled by their start to the season, they’ve got good players and they’ve got a good side. We’ll have to work hard and accept that at times we won’t have the ball, but we also have to work hard to put our stamp on the game and try to dominate large periods if we can.

‘We need to be ruthless in those times when we’re on top, which we have been. We also need to defend well and resolutely in the periods where they have possession.’



How to watch:

Wanderers supporters can watch the clash with Cambridge United by purchasing an iFollow BWFC video match pass for just £10, meaning despite not being able to make the trip to Cambridgeshire, you don’t have to miss a kick.

An iFollow BWFC video match pass will ensure supporters do not miss a minute of the action, with the entire match streamed through any compatible laptop, computer, tablet or mobile device in the United Kingdom.



Team News:

Nathan Delfouneso missed out on Tuesday night’s trip to Barrow due to his partner being in labour and Ian Evatt has now confirmed that she has given birth to a little boy. He will now be back available for selection, and many congratulations to the pair of them.

Tom White has trained during the second half of the week and could now be available, whilst Lloyd Isgrove and Shaun Miller have stepped up their recovery and move closer to a return to action.

Mark Bonner confirmed he doesn’t want to make too many changes to the team at once, despite speaking about fatigue coming into the equation due to the volume of games. In form striker Paul Mullin is likely to start for United following his mid-week hat-trick in a 3-1 victory against Port Vale.



Bookies Odds:

Cambridge win: 21/20

Draw: 23/10

Bolton win: 12/5

Correct as of 23/10/2020 (9.30am) on skybet.com



Form:

Wanderers go into the weekend’s game on the back of a 3-3 draw at Barrow but are three league games without victory having lost to Oldham Athletic and picked up the midweek draw and a draw against Grimsby Town recently.

Ian Evatt’s men's only victory of the campaign so far has come on the road, beating Harrogate Town at the Keepmoat Stadium at the beginning of the month.

Cambridge will be high on confidence and come into the clash top of League Two and on the back of three league victories in a row, against Newport County, Scunthorpe United and Port Vale. During that time they have managed to score ten goals.



Last time out:

The last time the two teams met was all the way back in January 2000 in an FA Cup tie at Abbey Stadium. Wanderers went a goal down to a Trevor Benjamin strike but came back to win the game, with goals from Bob Taylor (2) and Eidur Gudjohnsen securing a 3-1 victory.

The two sides last met for a league fixture in April 1991 again at the Abbey Stadium, but this time United would earn a 2-1 Division Three victory.

Never thought we'd be David when Cambridge was Goliath but I'm loving Evatt's attitude and confidence. Win this and the dream is back on.

With Baptiste keeping his place for whatever reason, wondering if they'll go back four or stick Harry out on the wing again?

Baptiste is a liability and Brockbank is wasted on the left but what do we know?

Good point in the end and a decent performance. Crellin still looks shaky but we have no real back up unless we play the goalie coach Gilks.

Deserved to win the disallowed goal was a great move very unlucky again when Delfounso nearly made it 2-1, but no bad performances other than the goalkeeper was tested once and scores an own goal, it's bloody obvious we needed an experienced keeper yet we didn't sign one, Gilks till January otherwise we will ship goals.

If they are the bench mark then it's a poor league because we certainly outplayed them today.

I was pleased that we performed well for long periods, but their wind-powered goal was coming even though it was surprising the way it arrived. We had chances and I can't believe how we overplayed it for the offside effort. But lots of positives from a game played in difficult conditions. Crawford was like a man possessed at times closing down all over the shop. Mullin totally silenced. Decent performances all round. A few minor criticisms but overall it was better.
If we play like that every game we'll be fine. If we improve on that again, we may even be playoff contenders.

Happy with the overall performance today - a tad unlucky not to win it outright - we were the best team IMO.

Still have the same criticism as last week - BrockBank should be right back not left wing - No goalie named in the subs again which is lunacy - and Baptist is a penalty waiting to happen. 

So just a few tweaks for me.

Just watched the highlights and saw Crellin’s mistake, I’ve noticed him choosing to punch the ball when it’s looks like a straight forward catch. Good goal and the earlier disallowed goal would have been even better.

Also seen a stat today that the shots to goal conceded is over 48%! So basically every 2 shots on target results in a goal conceded! Terrible stats. In my opinion we need a better keeper.

The results seem to be steadying up a bit just lately. Hope it lasts.

Really nice movement from the lads, particularly on the offside goal. We really should be higher up the league, but it's coming.
