Hard game on Tuesday, shame fans aren't back in grounds yet, this would have had a massive following, they seem to have found some form just at the right time, only club in England not to have lost a home game, would take a point, sadly see us losing this.

3-1

I'd love a win but we aren't playing well at the moment and Salford will be looking to get into the play-offs. I can see a 1-1 draw which wouldn't be the worst result to be honest.

Not sure. We still have to play three of the four form teams fighting for a play off spot - who all have a game in hand on us - so we really need something from every game - and if automatic promotion is the aim we could really do with winning most of them.

Salford went on a bad run after a great start but now they seem to be picking up again and will see this game as a must win so we’ll need to be on top form.

With Morecambe, Exeter and Carlisle still to come we really have to win.

Unfortunately, if we give away the ball and allow as many chances as we did on Saturday we’ll get battered by the better teams so I’m still hoping for that long-awaited improvement needed to control games. Otherwise it’s the play off lottery for us....

....which ain’t bad considering where we were in December.

On points per game 76 gets third spot 2 points a game so 3 wins and 3 draws gets you over the line on present stats.

Salford sounds tough but we have been pretty good away. No team stands out in this division, so it's a suprise that they are unbeaten at home, law of averages says they can be beaten, depends if we are alert from the first whistle till last.

From one of the more reasonable Salford chatrooms:
This is an absolute biggie is it not? Not just because of who were playing but where we are now in our ‘recovery’. 

Bolton have 10 points in their last 5 games but have scored only 5 goals. So they aren’t too prolific right now either. Overall, their away form is impressive, with a goal haul of 25. But they have also conceded 24 away from home. So on recent form, we should have some confidence playing at home. It may all depend on how well our defence can manage a certain striker, who currently has 17 goals. 

For us, Hendo is now on 14 goals and suddenly looks more lively about the pitch. BTA had a cracker on Saturday and was unlucky not to bag 2 goals. We have a strong bench with Boyd looking good when he comes on. But it’s still hard to tell how we have progressed under GB. The signs are good and each performance has seen an improvement. But this is the ultimate test of where we are in the pecking order now. It’s very winnable, but Bolton are a strong team and will take some breaking down.

Be good to get one over out distressed gentry neighbours. Think Bolton might be happy with a point, but if we win we might meet them in the play-offs!

We've never yet put three consecutive wins on the table during our EFL tenure so how sweet would it be if we were finally able to do it this time if only to hear Jack Dearden and 'Super' John McGinlay's reaction on Radio Bolton (sorry GMR) as well as the Bolton fan who repeatedly called us a 'pub team' on a recent post match phone in. Admittedly John McGinlay is the more fair minded of the two whereas Jack Dearden is biased beyond belief in his commentating. I am so looking forward to this game.

JUst went on Ifollow to get my match pass, signed in and it went straight to the stream without me having paid. There was a match earlier in the season that was cancelled - is this the replacement as regards paying?

We won again? Mad Evil or Very Mad ::mad:: ::seething2::

This is completely unacceptable! :cop: :gun: :nono:


I am being robbed of my sacred right to whinge about our crappy team getting crappy results! :bomb: :wtf2: :flog: :Overreact:

I can't believe we are actual promotion contenders!  :nopoints:

Hasn't anyone told Ian Evatt that's NOT what Bolton Wanderers Football Club is about?  Evil or Very Mad Question ..dunno.. 

Being serious for a moment now. We do seem to finally be on the right road to at least begin to bounce back after several very difficult years. It's just a shame none of us are able to be there to cheer the lads on in person. They're all doing a tremendous job in incredibly difficult circumstances. I just hope FV have things as well organised off the field as Ian and his staff have on field. :clap: :number1: :good:

Another unconvincing win but our defending has to be applauded even though we gave them several chances to score, got away with a nailed on penalty decision and were under the cosh for long periods. We were much better in midfield for the most part and young George is proving to be a good player in the making especially if he cuts out some of his more speculative passes that occasionally go astray. Isgrove's work rate was phenomenal again and Williams is perfect for what we need. I like Lee's close control but his finishing is woeful and he's had a lot of chances in recent games.
With other results going our way again we've somehow managed to put a bit of distance between us and the pack as far as automatic promotion goes but we will have to maintain the performance levels against some tougher opposition coming up notably Morecambe away. Hopefully by the time we go there we'll still have some breathing space as they're only 4 points behind us and have a much easier run in "on paper" and now they're our main rivals.

Bottom of the table Grimsby up next so providing there's no complacency we should be able to keep Morecambe at arms length for now - but as Walsall and Barrow showed tonight, there are no guarantees in this league.
Every game a cup final.......

Did you watch the game Lusty? Think you’re being a bit harsh. One of the best all round performances I’ve seen from us this season, I thought we were brilliant. We won every second ball, matched Salford’s physicality throughout and looked dangerous every time we broke. We were playing an in form team who hadn’t lost at home all season, we were always going to be on the back foot for periods but the defence again stood up well.

Also thought Dapo and Isgrove were fantastic, as much for what they did off the ball as on it, both won the ball back multiple times and carried it long distances. Dapo over plays quite often but I can’t remember having a winger who beats his man so often and his work rate is perfect for Evatt’s press.

Thomason also quality again, love watching him play. We’re still struggling for goals but so long as we keep nicking it who cares.

Give your happy-clapper hands a rest TROY.

Brilliant? We were good for about 25 minutes, should have been two or three goals up, then went back into our shell and created very little for the rest of the game. They should have had a penalty and but for a bobble Henderson would have scored.

There's no doubt that the defence and keeper are on top form and we don't look like conceding, but our attacking players are woeful in front of goal. I don't know who missed that open goal header from 3 inches but that just about sums us up.

Great result, but again we've just about done enough without blowing anyone away.

Its the sign of a good side that can grind out wins when they are playing poorly. The defence does look solid but we do need to make the most of the chances we create.

If a manager is judged on how he has improved the team and its individuals, Evatt is proving the cynics wrong. Doyle would normally put away a proportion of those chances he spurned last night but overall his contributions have been vital. He gets in good positions. Our number of shots per game  is improving and the defence and midfield have been much more reliable aided by an able keeper who loudly organises and encourages. The difference between him and Crellin is marked.

 Team spirit is also at a high and can get us through tough patches in games. Lots still to work on but the achievemnt since those early performances this season has been remarkable. What a shame we can't be there to make our voices heard during games. Away support by Wanderers fans is always positive and invaluable. 
No fans at home negates some of the advantage of playing on our own pitch. I'd love to know how many away wins there have been this season across the leagues......my impression is that there has been a much higher percentage than normal.

Home advantage has gone out of the window this season in every league so yes the number of away wins will have gone up massively.

I reckon I'd have scored 30 goals playing as the main striker in this league.

We really have been poor in front of goal. If we do go up there will have to be major investment in the attacking side of the team.

Agree that midfield is good on work rate but we didn't win the second ball for large periods of the game. Generally our midfield was great apart from a few occasions where they got ahead of play in their eagerness to get forward and were bypassed by a simple pass which is largely why Salford got so many chances. Fortunately we now have a core of Santos Baptiste and Williams to hold things up whilst we regrouped whereas earlier in the season we'd have conceded.
And we had a massive amount of luck and an incompetent ref who helped us out.
Much better than we were at the beginning of the season but highly dependent on keeping everyone fit and there's much to improve on. We still give the ball away too much but at least we're doing it further up the pitch for the most part.
What we have got is lots of energy, a good work rate and momentum and we just have to hope that will be enough to get us over the line.

It's looking good at the moment but with this team we're unlikely to score many goals so we're going to have to grind out results and pray the footballing gods stay with us because I still haven't seen enough to be 100% confident that we won't blow it - especially at this end of the season and considering who we still have to play compared to our rivals.

:pray:

How about we look at both sides, we played great football for 30 minutes and had complete control, However Salford up their game played some great stuff around the box, BUT could not breach one of the best defensive displays this season. When Delfounso is throwing his body at the ball it tells you how far we have come. Different discussion if we start putting away easy chances.

They have not lost at home for over 12 months but they have now, yet we look for negatives? get real this is league two putting the ball in the net is the hardest part of any game.

Spot on Wessy, i thought there was some great last ditch defending last night. Players literally throwing themselves in front of the ball to prevent a goal.

So we should just accept missed open goals from 3 inches?

We have missed a boatload of simple chances this season, had we scored just a few of them we'd be top of the league.
