Next up is against an improving Oldham tomorrow who stopped Carlisle in their tracks at the weekend with an excellent comeback. Pick of the bunch was a screamer from former French U20 and Congo international Bahambouma who’s scored 3 in his last 5 from midfield. Obviously McAleny is their main threat but our lads are going to have to be on their toes as Oldham are confident all of a sudden.
I think this will be a big test for us especially defensively and it will set the scene for our games against the higher teams yet to come. Oldham have been crap for most of the season - hence their position-  but like us have been getting a lot better recently. They leak goals but score plenty - 54 so far compared to our 40.
If we can weather the storm we might just nick it but I reckon we’ll have to find at least a couple of goals from somewhere to do it.
Praying we do.

We look solid at the back so as long as we keep it tight i can see us nicking this again.

It will be interesting to see if Miller gets a start over Doyle, can't see it myself but its been mentioned and with games coming thick and fast as least we have the option now.

General view in Oldham chatrooms is it could go either way but like us they have their optimists:

All good runs have to come to an end, it might as well be us that makes it happen.
Get the first goal and they'll be all over the place.

For me, they were one of the weakest teams we've played this season, although they've strengthened since then.  Kioso was by far their best player and he's gone now.
 
Their recent good run has been almost entirely against the basement sides - Stevenage, Southend, Barrow. 
 
I don't think we should fear them.

Bolton think they are City. Always playing out from the back... pass pass pass. Press them and they will make mistakes.

It's true we haven't played any top sides in the recent run - we have Cambridge and FGR coming up  - but providing we keep a lid on their quick attacks and start to produce a few of our own we should do 'em. Williams needs to boss the midfield tonight and we'll need good performances all round.

Preview: Oldham Athletic vs. Bolton Wanderers


Bolton Wanderers make the short trip to Boundary Park this evening as they look to stretch their five-game winning sequence when they take on Oldham Athletic (Kick Off 7pm).

Pre-Match Quotes:

Ian Evatt: “I think they’re an attacking threat, they've got some good attacking players and they can score goals.

"They had a great result on Saturday, but we also have good attacking players and their biggest strength can also become their biggest weakness and vice-versa.

"We’d like to think that if teams open up and throw the game open against us that we’ve got the players to be able to take advantage of that. I think it’s going to be a good game and both teams will fancy it.

"We’re obviously in a good run of form but for us, I’ve said many times, it’s about what we do. If we can perform to the levels I think we’re capable of, then we have a great chance of winning every game but it’s down to us and we have to go there and do it.”


Harry Kewell: “Ian is trying to play the right way. I know people may say, ‘oh just get it up there’ and all that, but you can see in his last few results he’s started to put a run together.

“They’re coming here having won five games in a row and will be flying high.

“He’s in a strong position now and he’s going want to keep that consistency up there.

“We’ve had a little bit of inconsistency but we’re coming off a good win and I feel tomorrow night is going to be a good footballing game, an exciting game.”

Draw: 5/2

Bolton Wanderers win: 5/4

Correct as of 2/3/2021 (10am) on skybet.com


Form:

With 16 points from their last six games, Bolton Wanderers currently sit at the summit of the Sky Bet League Two form table.

Shaun Miller’s injury-time winner against Barrow at the weekend gave Wanderers a deserved victory, their fifth successive win, to put them in the play-off places.

The Latics have won two and lost three from their previous six outings but beat Carlisle United 3-1 at Brunton Park at the weekend to give themselves some confidence heading into tonight’s clash.


Last time out:

Wanderers hosted Latics at the University of Bolton Stadium in October with the visitors running out 2-1 winners after Zak Dearnley’s 90th minute strike earned his team a smash and grab victory.

Nathan Delfouneso had earlier cancelled out Ben Garrity’s strike to even things up, but Dearnley had his say right at the death.

We have had plenty of clean sheets lately, so law of averages say we concede at some point, if so we will need 2 to win. lets hope we keep another tonight. Onwards and upwards.

Honestly, I think this one has tough written all over it. Two sides on a decent run who'll both be desperate to keep it going could well mean both teams playing tight and cautious to avoid conceding first. I can see this being a single goal match and I think we'll get that goal so I'm predicting a 1-0 win to BWFC. I really can't see this beng the goal fest some people think sunce both defences have tightened considerably since Christmas.

A rare comfortable win. Sending off obviously helped. Should have had more in the second half but the win was the main thing.

Big game against Bradford at the weekend, they'll fancy promotion just as much as us.

Sixth place and flying on paper. Still think we haven’t fully clicked going forward but you can’t complain at this point.

Agree with Nat about Bradford, every games a must win at the moment though.

Where’s that blue66 guy gone by the way?

This was a no contest - we should have put 6 in against this lot.

Only three shots on target which is the on-going concern considering the dominance.

Still three more in the bag - onwards.

Report: Oldham Athletic 0-2 Bolton Wanderers


Goals from Eoin Doyle and an own-goal by Harry Clarke made it six wins on the spin for Ian Evatt’s men as they comfortably saw off ten-man Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park.

Wanderers were dominant throughout and given the amount of possession they enjoyed were unlucky not to be heading home with more goals under their belts.

After a bright start by the hosts, Wanderers rode that early pressure and took the lead when Clarke steered Gethin Jones’ cross beyond his own ‘keeper.

Latics were down to ten men when Kyle Jameson was shown a straight red for a poor challenge on Nathan Delfouneso midway through the first half.

Wanderers effectively won the contest inside the first half when Doyle netted his 13th goal of the season.

The Wanderers boss made one change to the team that beat Barrow at the weekend with Nathan Delfouneso coming in to replace Lloyd Isgrove who was named among the substitutes.

The hosts won an early corner after Jameson’s cross was cleared by Ricardo Almeida Santos but the set-piece came to nothing and was cleared by Wanderers.

Bobby Grant’s shot from just outside the 18-yard line cleared Gilks’ bar with the Latics starting brightly.

Another Almeida Santos’ clearance resulted in a corner for Oldham as Wanderers eventually dealt with Nicky Adams' delivery into the box.

A quick break away from Wanderers earned them a corner after Doyle’s cross to the near post was deflected behind.

Serhat Tasdemir had a well-struck volley blocked by his own team-mate deep inside Wanderers’ area as the hosts looked to take advantage of their early pressure.

Some determination down the right-hand side by Jones resulted in another Wanderers corner and then an enterprising run, this time by Delfouneso, saw his cross deflect behind as Wanderers started to get more into the contest.

Declan John’s whipped-in delivery caused issues for the Latics defence and Alex Baptiste’s strike went off a defender and behind for another corner.

Wanderers took the lead on 19 minutes after Clarke inadvertently turned Jones’ excellent cross past Ian Lawlor. Delfouenso had found the Welshman in acres of space and his delivery made it difficult for the Oldham defender to deal with under pressure from Doyle.

Jones was in the right place to prevent Tasdemir sneaking the ball in at the far post after Oldham broke down the right.

The hosts were then reduced to 10 men after 27 minutes when Jameson was shown a straight red for a high and late challenge on Delfouneso who had to receive lengthy treatment. It was a terrible tackle which naturally caused a lot of anger among the Wanderers players.

Jones received Antoni Sarcevic’s cross after it came off Carl Piergianni’s head and he volleyed it into the side-netting as Wanderers looked to make their numerical advantage count.

Dapo Afolayan was a real bright spark for Wanderers, and his cross from the far side was intended for Doyle but the Irishman was unable to get his head on it and the ball drifted out for a goal-kick.

Doyle struck his 13th goal of the campaign to double Wanderers lead after 39 minutes. After some tremendous build-up play involving a large number of passes, Afolayan’s curling left-footer came off the post and into the path of the Irishman who made no mistake.

Just before the break, Afolayan tried his luck with a low shot that lacked the power to beat Lawlor after John’s short corner found its way to the winger.

Wanderers started on the front foot as the second half got underway and as expected took control of the play.

Passing the ball around with purpose and looking to attack at every opportunity, they were hungry to add to their first-half tally of two goals.

Kieran Lee was the first Wanderers player to have his name taken after a late challenge on Brice Ntambwe just inside Oldham’s half.

Adams fouled Jones just outside the box to give Wanderers a presentable opportunity, but although John’s free-kick beat the wall, it went straight into the arms of Lawlor.

Evatt made his first change of the game after 61 minutes with George Thomason coming on for Lee.

Piergianni was shown the yellow card for bringing down Afolayan just outside the box as the midfielder was charging in on goal. Doyle stepped up to take the free-kick this time, and it looked to be curling in at the near post only for it to take a slight deflection and go agonisingly wide and behind for a corner.

Wanderers made their second change with just over 20 minutes to go when Marcus Maddison came on for the hard-working Delfouneso.

Maddison looked to get in on the act himself shortly after his introduction, and he intercepted the ball deep into Oldham territory and charged forward but his low effort skewed wide of goal.

Wanderers made a double substitution after 76 minutes with Arthur Gnahoua and Shaun Miller coming on for Afolayan and Doyle respectively.

The result saw Wanderers pick up their sixth consecutive victory, the first time they had achieved this feat since September 2000.


Oldham Athletic: Lawlor, Clarke (Vaughan 85), Jameson, Piergianni, Keillor-Dunn, Grant, (Ntambwe 46) Tasdemir (Fage 46), Diarra, Adams, Bahamboula, McCalmont (Whelan 69).

Subs Not Used: Bilboe (GK), Blackwood.


Bolton Wanderers: Gilks, Jones, Williams, Almeida Santos, Delfouneso (Maddison 69), Doyle (Miller 76), Sarcevic, Baptiste, John, Lee (Thomason 62), Afolayan (Gnahoua 76).

Subs Not Used: Tutte, Isgrove, Jackson.

Goals: Clarke OG (19), Doyle (39).

we started slowly and they won all the second balls early on but when we scored we never looked like losing to me. The tackle for the sending off was horrendous, no idea why Kewell was moaning!

The defence looks rock solid to me and that is due in part to Santos turning into Beckenbauer  Very Happy . Him and Baptiste look like a great pairing now and the full backs both had good games last night as well.

The bench looks so must stronger which helps as well. just need to have a word with Maddison about that ridiculous headband.

Defence solid worried if Santos was injured, we close teams down really well forcing mistakes and gaining possesion, you could say that lately we have been lucky two own goals, penalty etc but it's the constant closing down creating mistakes by the opposition.

The final ball stops us battering anyone, my main gripe is that we NEVER score from a corner/ set pieces baffling that Santos can only head a defencive header.

Another pleasing result although still some distance from a complete  performance IMO.
Whilst they still had 11 players on the pitch they could easily have taken the lead, especially when their goal-bound shot hit their own player, but after that stupid tackle on Dapo it became a lot easier and I agree with Evatt that we could and should have capitalised more from the situation but apart from a few decent passages we were again lacking ideas and execution up top.
Our defence looks good with Williams and Lee in front of Baptiste and Santos but we have to hope none of them get injured especially the CBs who have been inspirational recently.
I think any talk of promotion is ridiculous at this stage.
There are 5 teams who will overtake us if they win their games in hand so for now I’m thinking 11th rather than 6th. Obviously they can’t all win those games as some of the fixtures are against each other but you get the point.
More tellingly, we’ve been on a run against bottom half teams/strugglers which has been great so far but we’re going to have to step up another level when we face the top sides. 
Bradford on Saturday is another cup final as they are one of the teams that can pass us so we need to nip that in the bud before we go head to head with the likes of Cambridge and FGR.
If we can beat the teams around and above us I’ll start to believe - but we need to find a way to be more clinical in front of goal to have any chance.
Second half last night against 10 men we never looked like scoring.

Too right Wessy. There was a ball in last night where it looked easier to put it on target whilst their goalie was flapping than try to head it back across. If he could add a goal threat to his game he'd be immense but I don't think he has the attacking instincts.

Just seen Kewell has been sacked and Keith Curle is due to take over. Bit harsh on Kewell i think, he had them playing decent football ans scoring loads of goals but what can you realistically do in 7 months?
