This is another one of those "we should win on paper" games - which have often been the ones we've lost. Been on a bad run have Wozzle so they're going to be pretty desperate, but if we have any serious ambitions for promotion, so are we.
What worries me is that we'll be without Sarcevic for a while and I think he's a big influence - we were noticeably poorer when he went off last time out so hopefully we'll find a solution.
Anything could happen but theoretically we have the quality to win through. Reckon we'll do it by the odd goal.

Has 1-0 to the away side written all over it. We'll no doubt have 75% possession and 25 shots into row Z though.

On which note if you’re going to repeat your “we’ll hammer them 3 nil” claim, this might be the week to do it Boggers 👍

3-1 Bolton, they'll come to park the bus, but I think we get an early goal, and open them up.

I’ve got PTSD from the past 12 years supporting the dross we’ve been stuck with. I never expect a win anymore

Know that feeling. Thing is it’s been a real bonus to watch us string together enough wins to climb from relegation material to promotion contenders but we can be sure that as soon as we lose a game our fickle fans will be calling for the manager’s head again. No patience some folk.

Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. Walsall


Bolton Wanderers host Walsall at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday as they aim to continue their excellent form which has seen them win nine and draw two of their last 11 matches.

Pre-Match Quotes:

Ian Evatt: “We’re fully focused on our own job and our own fixtures. A quarter of the season to go that’s a lot of points, we’ve got to take care of our own business and prepare for Walsall.

“I’d much rather have this pressure than what we had earlier in the season. Nothing good in life comes without pressure. We’re enjoying our work and performances. We want more and we’re determined to keep it going.

“We’re going to enjoy the pressure and keep trying to get results and then hopefully we can do enough to get this team out of this division.

“We need to treat every game like it’s a cup final. It’s an old cliche but we haven’t got time for off days, we have to be full tilt until the end of the season.”


James Clarke (Walsall captain): “Bolton is obviously a much different project, it will be a lot different and we’ll look at how they play and change the way we’re going to go about it.

“But we have to take confidence from Crawley. I’m gutted with the result but we have to look back at the game and see we’ve done some really good things and kept them very quiet.

“Some of the performances and battling was unbelievable, so we need to keep that spirit, more boys becoming men.”

Team News:

Otherwise, Ian Evatt has no fresh injury concerns as he aims to extend Wanderers’ unbeaten record to a 12th game.


Bookies Odds:

Bolton Wanderers win: 8/11

Draw: 5/2

Walsall win: 15/4

Correct as of 19/3/2021 (1pm) on skybet.com


Form:

Wanderers are currently at the summit of the Sky Bet League Two form table over the last ten games.

Nine wins and two draws during an eleven-game period have seen them pick up 29 points from a possible 33.

Meanwhile, the Saddlers were denied a much-needed victory against Crawley Town last time out when their opponents netted a 97th-minute leveller. From their last ten games, they have won one, lost five, and drawn four matches.


Last time out:

Walsall picked up the three points at the Banks's Stadium earlier in the season when they ran out 2-1 winners.

Wanderers took the lead through Eoin Doyle but goals from Elijah Adebayo and Rory Holden sealed the victory for the Midlanders.


Danger Man - Wes McDonald

A dynamic winger who is a real attacking threat for Walsall, McDonald has impressed during his time in the West Midlands following a move from Yeovil Town in July 2019 and so far this season, he has made 36 appearances (3 goals) at the time of writing.

Born in London, McDonald spent time in the youth ranks at Crystal Palace and Fulham before a move to Birmingham City in 2012 to continue his scholarship. Handed his first professional contract during his time at St. Andrew’s, the winger never made a senior appearance for the Blues and learned his trade whilst on loan at Nuneaton Town and Solihull Moors.

Making a permanent switch to Yeovil Town in August 2018, he spent a single season at Huish Park before signing for Walsall. Last season for the Saddlers, he managed 35 appearances (7 goals) before the season was cut short in March 2020.

Great to scab a win but it was unconvincing and very stressful to watch. Anyone mentioning City in the same breath as that wants their head examining.

Poor game and especially the first half but we keep playing poorly and winning which bodes well. Can we really start to dream of promotion?

Don’t do it to yourself yet, Norpig. It’s probably going to be a slog to climb the table from where we now are.

I agree. Don't jinx it all! Very Happy
