Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. Barnsley

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

Wanderers are back in home action at the University of Bolton Stadium this Tuesday evening with a Carabao Cup First Round tie against last season’s Sky Bet Championship Semi-Finalists, Barnsley.

Ian Evatt’s men head into their second home fixture in four days following on from a 3-3 draw against MK Dons on the opening day of the season last weekend. Barnsley opened up their campaign under new manager Markus Schopp with a 1-1 draw at Cardiff City, and the Austrian will be looking to record his first win as Tykes boss.


Pre-match quotes:

Ian Evatt: “We’ll be coming up against a good team. They finished fifth in the Championship last season, so they’ve got some very talented players. They’ve also got a new manager.”

“I’ve watched a lot of their games during pre-season and then their game on Saturday, and they change the way they play quite a lot. Sometimes they’re possession-based and build from the back, and sometimes they’re more direct and play up to the front lads and get runners off them.

“Whatever we come up against, we’ll have to work it out pretty quickly and problem-solve for ourselves out on the pitch. We’ve got to do that and then implement our own game style.”


Team News:

Ian Evatt will likely make changes to the team that drew against MK Dons on Saturday, with a number of players requiring game time to improve their match fitness.

Ricardo Almeida Santos was an unused substitute at the weekend, and Kieran Lee came on for a second-half cameo – the pair of them could slot into the starting eleven. Between the sticks, Matt Gilks got the nod to start in the previous fixture, but Joel Dixon could come into contention this evening.

Last Time Out

Wanderers last welcomed Barnsley to the University of Bolton Stadium in December 2017 and it was to be a successful afternoon.

Going head to head in the Sky Bet Championship, Wanderers came out on top. Gary Madine opened the scoring after twenty minutes before Tom Bradshaw equalised from the penalty spot a couple of minutes later.

Madine scored a penalty himself before the break to give Phil Parkinson’s side the lead, and Mark Little wrapped up the victory with a second-half strike.

A fairly strong line up for this kind of game... Good to see a result against a good championship team.

Still level at half time but rather fortunate it seems so let’s hope our luck holds and we can get a win tonight. Barnsley are a good Championship side so this is a big test for the boys. Come on you White men, don’t let these Yorkshire puddings get the better of us.

And a good save by Dixon as well by all accounts Biggie so cracking performance and result. A cup run this season would be very welcome.

What a strange (but very effective) goal the winning penalty was!

I don't think I've ever seen one scored aimed at the top of the goals in the centre (well slightly off centre) before.

I've not seen many scored at the top of the goals in the corners before - even though, in theory at least, it should be physically impossible for a keeper in from a standing start to reach such a shot in time.

I was always taught to hit the side netting at the bottom when I took a penalty for the same reason but keepers are enormous these days and I don't doubt a few could stop them now?

Looks as though Evans has had the players practising taking them.

Well done Bolton!

Barnsley bossed the first 20 minutes but from then on we matched them, and created better chances, entertaining 90 minutes, No extra time went straight to penalties and we scored all 5, another step forward.

The penalty by Sarcevic was fantastic in the top corner!

Surprised at that Sluffy, Franny Lee always used to hit them like that, top corner and as hard as he could and was convinced if he did that, no keeper could save it and I don’t think he ever missed one. Brilliant save by Joel D last night, very strong hand and will do him no end of good.

I think you misread what I wrote 63?

I didn't say I had never seen anyone hit them in the top corner - indeed Sarce did so last night, just that it wasn't that common - you quoting Franny Lee as your example, who retired nearly fifty years ago seems to back up my point about that - what I said was I don't recall anyone hitting them (with pace and not a dinky Panenka type lob) into the top centre(ish) of the goal.

And fwiw (and not wishing to be disparaging), it was a competent save by Dixon (rather than 'brilliant') as the penalty was struck neither too hard and relatively close to his body and as such gave him (or any other keeper) more than a fighting chance of saving it if they had guessed the right way to go.

I'm certainly not belittling Dixon's save merely pointing out that it was more a poor penalty kick from the Barnsley player that gave Dixon the opportunity to save it, rather than an outstanding save from him stopping a cracking penalty kick.

Why were there proper tv cameras at the match? Was Sky broadcasting it or something?
They had multiple angles and far better coverage than our EFL single camera matches.
