It doesn't seem 5 minutes ago we were celebrating promotion, but can you believe the new season kicks off on Saturday?

I'm usually an optimist but I don't like the look of our squad, it doesn't look any better than the one that just about got promoted from League 1. My biggest concern is where the goals are going to come from, I really wanted us to sign a proven goal-getter at this level, but that hasn't happened. It looks like the pressure will be on Doyle once again.

I'll go for 1-1.

MK Dons have just lost their manager and just been beaten 5-0 (Bournemouth). I can see a standard Bolton 1-0 win. It would be great to start the season of with a win!

I remember my dear old mother many years ago telling me that if BWFC had a good pre-season that they will have a poor full season and visa-versa.

I've never checked the stats to how true that is but over the years it has always stuck in my mind and always 'felt' to be the case.

On the basis of our 'good' pre-season and MK Dons being somewhat of a nightmare, I'm fully expecting us to lose!

Hope I'm wrong though!

They’ve struggled against the drop pretty much every season since they went up to League 1 and don’t have any money to spend since building the new stadium. I did hear that they have brought in 3 young and very promising loanees from Chelsea though who have looked good despite their pre-season results.

Difficult to predict so early in the season so I’ll probably just copy BTID as usual.

In light of their recent experiences, I suspect MK might try to park the bus, but we'll wear them down and get a narrow win [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. MK Dons

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ian Evatt’s men welcome MK Dons to the University of Bolton Stadium for our Sky Bet League One season opener.

With an unbeaten pre-season over and done with, attention turns to today’s opening game, which sees fans return to the ground to watch a competitive home fixture for the first time since February 2020.

Pre-match quotes:

Ian Evatt: “We’re looking forward to it but, mostly to see the fans in their numbers here at the University of Bolton Stadium.

“We’re excited to be playing in front of them and hopefully put on a show to be proud of.

“Football is nothing without its support and ours has really come together the last six months.

“We’ve sold over 10,000 season tickets, which is absolutely amazing, and we can’t wait to get started.

On MK Dons: “A tough challenge. I think they are a very good team that are difficult to play against.

“They are very open and expansive with their play, which means it’ll be two teams trying to control the possession.

“We have to come up with a strategy to combat that.”

Team News:

Ian Evatt goes into the fixture with no new injury concerns, other than the long-standing injury to loanee winger Xavier Amaechi.

With a plethora of options under his belt to choose from, keep your eyes peeled to our social media accounts at 2pm, as the first team sheet of the season will be revealed.

Cash Turnstiles

Wanderers supporters' will be able to purchase tickets directly from the turnstiles at Block M of the Carrs Pasties North Stand lower tier, ahead of tomorrow’s 3pm kick off.

Tickets will be sold on a cash only basis from 1.45pm.

Prices for the fixture are as follows;

Adults - £21.00

Over 65s/Under 23s - £16.00

Under 18s - £10.00

Under 12s - £8.00


Supporters can avoid the match day queues altogether by purchasing tickets for the fixture, online HERE & taking advantage of the club’s Digital Ticket & Print at Home facility.

Last Time Out

We last welcomed the Dons to the University of Bolton Stadium back in November 2019.

A match filled with drama, former Wanderers’ striker Daryl Murphy went from zero to hero, as he slotted home an injury time winner mere minutes after missing a penalty for the Whites.

That late goal was the difference in this one, as Bolton took the 1-0 victory.

Match Officials:

Referee: Martin Coy

Assistants: Martin Newhouse and Hristo Karaivanov

Fourth Official: Tom Reeves

Phew! Feels like a win after all that... aside from the 2 sloppy goals we conceded today I thought we looked a good match for them. Cut out those mistakes and tighten things up a bit and we'll be alright in this league

Great game both sides played well, just annoying that we gifted them a couple of goals, our second was superb. but lucky to score so late, i saw the ref look at his watch twice just before our goal.

Well, we couldn't have left that any later. Frustrating that we gifted them a couple of goals, and failed to make the most of our own chances, but by the end I was begging for 3-3. 
Great to be back at the ground though, despite the usual drag getting off the car park.

Good to be back, but same old Bolton.

Shambolic defending and goalkeeping cost us dearly. Happy with a point in the end, but MK are one of the favourites to go down and have no manager - this should have been 3 points.

Evans out.

Gilks was rubbish in net. 
A mistake gifted them the opener and a 2nd mistake (slip) should have given them their 2nd.
Could have scored more had we been more clinical in front of goal.  

Great to score the equaliser in the final minutes!

Only one game in but the standard of play might be a tad harder than most thought. MK are not exactly favorites in League one but played us well. Gilks had a poor game and Williams was lucky not to see red for that tackle.
Everyone put in a good effort so lets see how it goes - onwards.

I'm happy with the standard of football on display. Exciting to be there, fun to watch. I would take that any day over a boring 1-0 win. We go to the football to be entertained, and that's what we got.

Gilkes had a couple of dodgy moments but he has been decent for us. He was a big reason why we got promoted last season and his commanding at the back is a big influence on the way that we play, eg with his distribution and his timing as well as his organisation. I'm not going to drag him down for making a couple of blunders.

The new signings look decent and going forward we are a real threat.

On the one hand people might say we squandered some decent chances but on the other hand, when you watch someone like Man City, they don't score every chance... If they did they would score twelve goals per game. Three goals for us today was a good return for the number of attacks we had.
