Hard to predict how this will go. Oxford are 5th ATM having drawn with Cambridge and then beaten Crewe and Charlton - all 3 of whom are in the bottom half of the table.
Karl Robinson is no mug and his team are fairly direct but I reckon we can have them so I'm going for a home win.

First home win of the season on the way if we can defend as well as we did the other night. I'm going 2-1 to the Super Whites.

Oxford were a good side last year but at the moment I’m not worried by anybody in this league and whilst it won’t be easy, the boys are gelling now and with Baka out it looks like the Isgrove/Jones partnership down the right can resume its success from Lincoln. Will IE give Kacha a run in place of Doyler who has been poor so far, to see what he can do? We have a few options now but the team is coming together well so I’ll go for a 2-0 win for the Whites.

MJ will have to get to grips with Brannagan who is a skilful bugger and can make them tick if he's given free reign. They're decent out wide too so there are battles to be won on both flanks. It will be tight but I reckon we can edge it by the odd goal.

Just the sort of game Bolton fans expect to win but rarely do.

I don't think anyone in their right mind expects us to win but lots like me are hopeful. Too early to tell where we are at compared to other teams in this league  but if the three games we've had so far are anything to go by, every game is likely to be competitive and close. All 3 could have gone either way - although we should have won the first one. One thing is for sure - it won't be boring.

I never expect a win from us, but by our standards I’m feeling pretty good about this season on the evidence so far. 

Impressed with how the new signings have bedded in, more confident in the defence and keeper following midweek’s clean sheet and we’re creating well - especially Dapo who has really stepped up his game in my view. 

Feels like a good time to be a Wanderer, and home advantage could be a big factor for us with the crowd back in - can’t wait to get back there soon.

I haven’t been on for a while but good to see you back Lust and Nat.

I'm hopeful of a clean sheet and a goal or two.

Think we may have a tough game on our hands here. Finger’s crossed we can keep a clean sheet but I don’t see much better than a draw coming our way unless we’re better than I think we are.

I predict we will win and comfortably. I rate Oxford United a lot of course but I firmly feel we've really gelled after a slightly stuttery start and since we know we can score goals which had been a real problem for us in the recent past I predict we will, three of them in fact.

I believe we actually have the strength of character, the strong nerve and genuine ability that has been all too lacking in recent years but has been on full show this season so far in my opinion.

Agree with that Lucky, I don’t think we’ve even properly hit our stride yet and we still look good. I think Oxford are a decent side but I think their results so far may have flattered them, whilst ours have undersold us. Now we’ve tightened the defence and Rico looks back to fitness, I think we’ll push on from here and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if we won comfortably today by 2 or 3 goals.

Stick around Troy and maybe the site will get back to normal if opinions are allowed. It was like the Marie Celeste on here and the site needs a broad range of perspectives if interest is to be maintained and generated.

Kinell!

My brother's widow has decided to visit us this pm for the first time since his funeral. Love her and look forward to seeing her, but why the hell does it have to be Saturday afternoon?
I might/will probably miss the match ::wtf::

Oxford were anything but direct, pass and move and had us hanging in for long periods, we created some good chances also, you couldn't take your eye off this one, thought the Oxford goal was handball but only saw it live, was amazed it stood but you couldn't argue that they didn't deserve something.

Dapo scored at the best time possible, apart from a short spell second half we grew and grew Doyle showed why he is on the pitch. Thought Dixon, Dapo, Doyle all played really well as did the entire team.

Oxford wont play better than that all season yet lost, that says a lot about this Bolton team. Fantastic entertainment and a great win.

Enjoyed the game, but the win flattered us as I thought Oxford were the more threatening, they created a lot of opportunities.

Not convinced by our defence at all, and I don't understand why Gordon was dropped after the clean sheet win at Lincoln.

But going forward we seem to have improved on last season, Dapo looks more like the player he should be.

I have to agree with you at least in part Nat. However I do believe even more firmly today than I did last week that we've developed a mental strength under Ian Evatt that's been missing for far too long. Yes we rode our luck today but in truth it was about time we got some and we took both our goals very well. Can the defence do better? Sure, in fact we can still improve all over the pitch but for the first time in some years I actually feel confident that we will.

By the way are you doing a BEL for this or shall I do it? I'm happy to step aside for you since BEL is your 'baby' so to speak but if you don't have time or don't want to I'd be happy to write one myself for posting tomorrow.

That aside I've been really encouraged by our start to the season and I still don't think we've hit our full stride yet. If we keep going the way we have done thus far I genuinely believe we could nab automatic promotion this year and I'm certain we'll make the play offs at least.

I too have a good feeling. Not the finished article, but we're making progress.
From up in the West Stand, their goal should never have stood. I have spoken.

This is the type of luck that used to go against us in seasons past.  So take the three points and run.

They had a plan to use the long ball over the top and that worked nicely for them  - we should have adjusted for that but didn't.  Good game though.

Onwards.

To be fair it's hard to tell from just one picture.

The highlights (link below) shows the ball to him came from behind him and he could have taken it on his chest for all we know.

Offside might have been close too?

Anyway, no harm done and another win for us!

My comment was initially a tongue in cheek one but now after watching those highlights hmm..........
