The games keep coming thick and fast and we play again tomorrow.

Scunny look to be on a decent run at the moment but i think we will beat them narrowly, either 1-0 or 2-1 and continue our improbable rise to the play-off positions.

It will be interesting to see if Evatt makes any changes to the team, players like Lee who haven't played back to back games in a while may be rested but the squad does look and feel a lot stronger since January.

Agree Pig, I think Thomason will be in for Lee - better pitch and fresh legs, looking forward to seeing him play actually.

Thomason gets better every time i see him. He can pass but he's learning the other side of the game as well now and he gets stuck in more and is being more physical.

He's going to be one to build a team around i reckon.

While we've been winning of late, it's hardly been convincing.

Don't know much about Scunthorpe but their recent record suggests we'll have to play better to secure 3 points.

I'd drop Maddison for sure.

Best product since Holding in my book. 
Tomorrow’s the missus’ birthday and because of lockdown I can’t take her out for the evening, throw a party or get the mates round to entertain her so it’s looking very much like my attention will be required elsewhere.
With my luck this will be the game where Nat has 18 pints of Pepsi before kick off and we score a hatful.

I'm with Nat on this one, Maddison hasn't pulled up many trees in his starts so far, would prefer to see Arthur starting on the left, and Williams, Lee holding the midfield, the defence has looked a lot stronger since they both started, and I'd give Doyle a rest and start Miller with Dapo in behind him.

Maddison has had a terrible start with us but he does have the talent. I’m just wondering if it’s his attitude that needs sorting. Suspect he’s on fancy wages so Evatt will give him every opportunity to start performing. Maddison must surely realise that dropping down the divisions to showcase himself and then not producing the goods could finish his career?
Still hopeful he’ll come good.

We've had a good run recently but so have Scunny who have won their last 4 in a row so I'm slightly nervous about the bookies making us favourites for this.
If we play as poorly as we did against Southend, they'll murder us so yet again, here we are wondering if this is the game when we finally fulfill our potential.
To put it into context, it's exactly a month today when Mr Pig created his "Time for Evatt to go?" thread - and whilst I thought that Evatt needs more time, I'm still not convinced he is getting the best out of this squad.
Today would be a good time to start.

Anyone know if I subscribe to iFollow, put it on pause for 4 hours until the missus goes to bed, will I still be able to watch the game then?
Alternatively how long after the game do they stick it in the archive?

You can pause it i think but not sure for how long? Can you not bribe Mrs Lusty with something to let you watch it?

Lusty needs a man cave, or 'hell hole' as mine is often described. It's not much, but it's sanctuary.

According to the family, mine's full of crap as well. The younger members moan that I've got more toys than them, and have a hissy fit when I won't let them play with my Buzz Lightyear. (non speaking).

Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. Scunthorpe United

Ian Evatt’s go in search of a fourth successive win against in-form Scunthorpe United at the University of Bolton Stadium this evening.

Pre-Match Quotes:


Ian Evatt: “They’ve had a good run of form themselves, they’ve won their last four games. Neil (Cox) has found a way of playing that is effective, and it’s going to be a difficult challenging game.

"But we’re in a good place, the squad’s in a good place, we can rotate if needs be to keep energy high and we’ve got players champing at the bit on the training pitch, champing at the bit off the bench, champing at the bit off the bench and in reserve.

"There are lots to be positive about but also know that we’re not just going to turn up and win the game, we have to do the basics well, make sure we concentrate on our performance level and if we perform well, I’m confident that we’ll beat anybody in this league but it’s about what we do more than anything else.”


Neil Cox: “We’re looking forward to the test. They’re on a good run of form and so are we. I’m looking forward to a good challenge.

“They’ll be looking for automatic promotion and we want to keep climbing up the league.

“We’re going to concentrate on what we’re going to do and we have to keep the ball a bit better than we did on Saturday.

“We’re fresh and ready to go.

“I spent nearly three years at that football club and Mark (Howard), Jem (Karacan) and (George) Taft have all been there.

“They will all want to do well going back there.”

Bookies Odds:

Bolton Wanderers win: 1/1

Draw: 12/5

Scunthorpe United win: 5/2

Correct as of 23/02/2021 (3pm) on skybet.com


Form:

Tonight’s contestants are the two in-form teams in Sky Bet League Two with Ian Evatt’s troops looking for a fourth consecutive win, while The Iron are chasing a fifth win on the spin.

Wanderers go into the match on the back of two solid away victories against Southend United at the weekend and a midweek fightback against Mansfield Town which saw them recover from two goals down to win the game 3-2.

Scunthorpe beat Harrogate Town 3-1 at the weekend after a good win against Colchester prior to that.


Last time out:

Loanee Peter Kioso grabbed the only goal of the game earlier in the campaign as Wanderers ran out 1-0 winners at Glanford Park.

The winner sent Wanderers up to 13th spot in the division and was their fourth successive win.


Match Officials:

Referee: Anthony Blackhouse.

Assistant Referees: Richard Wigglesworth and Matthew Bristow.

Fourth Official: Conor Brown.

Six points from two home wins could see us move into a playoff position.

No pressure, these boys can do it!!!!!

Just moved into a rental having left the best man cave on the planet. Waiting for new house building work to be done.
Can't watch the match as it's the missus birthday but have subscribed and will hopefully watch later.

Moved the ball a lot quicker in that first half too. Promising signs. Let's keep it going with three more points on Saturday.

Just finished watching the game. Solid defensive performance but still lacking that coherence in attack apart from the Sarcevic goal. Seems to me we're good at getting bodies behind the ball when we haven't got possession but it's a bit laboured when we're going forward and we're slow in transition when there's a break on - maybe that's the price we have to pay for having a much-improved defence? We also seem to be devoid of ideas when we're faced with two banks of defenders - plenty of passing it around outside the danger zone but no defence splitting killer passes to break them down. Isgrove had a good game and put in a real shift and Sarcevic showed some vision when he came on.
Barrow next - who managed a win tonight - but March is going to be a much tougher month playing mid table teams and the top two so then we'll see how far we've progressed.

I thought we played well first half, the only negative being that we should have scored more than one goal. Second half we didn't start well and they came back into it but the defence looks solid now and Santos and Baptiste are a great partnership at CB and both full backs played well as well.

The other big change is that we now have much better options of the bench as proved when Sarcevic came on and to a lesser extent last night King Arthur and Maddison and can change the game.

I am very upset because we keep winning! ::FU::

As a true Trotter I protest the removal of my opportunity to bemoan the crap football and rubbish results that are our usual offerings. How dare these people deprive me of my God-given right to whinge, moan and forecast immediate relegation followed by cataclysmic destruction? Sad

Get it sorted pronto Ian or I'll start hoping again and we all know how bad that is for a Wanderers fan Wink Very Happy
