In case you lot forgot whilst you're all busy talking shite about boardroom antics we have a big game coming up and a chance to return to the top of the league.

We still look a bit fragile away from home but Chesterfield look like relegation fodder so we should be winning this.. 1-3 top at Christmas

The thing that worries me about this one is complacency because Chesterfield are fighting for survival and our lads are doing well. Providing they are up for it we should win comfortably but they should be in no doubt that Chesterfield will have a proper go.

I don't think PP leaves any room for complacency and the work ethic seems to be there whoever we play, Peterborough aside we have maintained a level of performance.
I'm going 2-0

I love the comment in the Gary Madine article where he says that after coming off after one game with cries of "Fuck off, Madine!" still ringing in his ears, Parky basically pulled him and said "Listen, this lot think you're shit. You can sulk about it or prove them wrong. What's it gonna be?"

No mollycoddling from our Phil it would appear.

And it looks like it's working.

Are you forgetting Rochdale, Walsall and Northampton. Ok we didn't lose all them but we need  to improve away from home if we want to go up

I'm talking about the run of the last 12 games, we had a blip after a good start with the games you mentioned but we have won 9 of our last 12 games. Our away record is P:10 W:6 D:1 L:3
have a little faith

...and you can pay at the gate as well apparently, according to BWFC Official news.

We're buzzing like a team now and I think we'll win this one 3-1

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Chesterfield v Bolton Wanderers

1. Defensive Prowess

Wanderers’ come into this fixture having won nine of the last 10 games. We’ve also shown our stubbornness at the back during that period keeping clean sheets in eight of them fixtures.

Currently boasting the best defence in Sky Bet League One, Phil Parkinson’s men haven’t conceded in over 360 minutes of league football. 

Our away form also makes for good reading, conceding just six goals from our 10 away fixtures this season. Let’s hope our ability to shut out teams continues this weekend.


2. Goals, Goals, Goals
It’s not just our defenders that are in form, striker Gary Madine has scored three times in the last two games. His movement on and off the ball has created goal scoring chances for both himself and his team mates.

Elsewhere in the side, Josh Vela has scored three times in his last five, while Sammy Ameobi has found the net in each of his last two. However, Zach Clough still leads the goal scoring charts with seven goals.

All four of the lads will be crucial if we are to come away from the Proact Stadium with three points.


3. First trip to the Proact
Speaking of the stadium, this weekend’s game will be the Whites’ first visit to Chesterfield’s new ground. 

Wanderers’ last visited the Derbyshire side in the Second Round of the FA Cup in 1990. With the Proact opening in 2010, it’ll be another new stadium for the travelling Bolton fans this weekend.


4. Travelling in numbers
Having sold out our initial ticket allocation of 1976 tickets, we’ll be arriving on Saturday backed by over 2000 travelling fans. 

Travelling far and wide so far this season the support of Bolton fans on the road has been admired by staff and players alike. 

With pay on the day also available it could be another memorable trip for the travelling support.


5. Last game before Christmas
The win over Gillingham was our last game at Macron Stadium until Boxing Day, however, the trip to Chesterfield this weekend will be our last final game before Christmas.

If results go our way Wanderers’ could top the table this weekend and will go into a busy festive period full of confidence and momentum.

Report: Chesterfield 1-0 Bolton


IN BRIEF

Wanderers slipped to defeat at the Proact Stadium as a first half goal from Liam O’Neil proved to be enough to thwart Phil Parkinson’s men.

Despite creating a multitude of chances throughout the game and dominating large swathes, Wanderers weren’t decisive in front of goal and paid the ultimate price to O’Neil’s strike.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers started with the same 11 that demolished Gillingham 4-0 at Macron Stadium in front of the Sky cameras on Monday evening. 

Gary Madine, buoyed by three goals in two games, continued to lead the line, ably supported by the attacking trifecta of Sammy Ameobi, Zach Clough and Josh Vela who have all been clinical in front of goal during recent matches.

Over 2,000 fans travelled down from Lancashire to get behind the White and were in fine voice throughout the contest.

FIRST HALF

The visitors’ attacking intent was apparent within seconds of the kick off and a smart passage of playing involving quick, sharp passing resulted in Vela narrowly volleying over Lloyd Allinson’s cross bar barely two minutes into the game.

A Clough drive from distance, trying to catch Allinson off-guard, was stopped by the Spireites’ keeper. But it was clear that Wanderers wanted to get an early goal.

The diminutive front man then went inches wide after good link up play on the right between Ameobi and Wilson.

Allinson thwarted Clough once again when he caught the Denton destroyer’s 25 yard free kick.

The opening goal came in the most unlikely of circumstances when Liam O’Neil caught everybody by surprised as he curled his effort past Ben Alnwick. Chesterfield hadn’t posed any attacking threat whatsoever up until that moment.

The goal spurred the hosts and even captain Gary Liddle tried an audacious attempt from distance off Ched Evans’ centre.

Madine went close to equalising when he snapshot had Allinson diving at full strength but Wanderers’ early tempo had been stymied by Chesterfield’s resurgence.

Clough should have equalised just before the break when he ran the length of the Chesterfield half with only Allinson to beat. However, the imposing keeper managed to block the chance to preserve his side’s slender lead going into the break.

SECOND HALF

The tempo wasn’t as frenetic as the opening minutes of the first period, as the hosts strove to maintain their lead and frustrate Wanderers.

Ameobi, whose stunning goal against Gillingham put the gloss on Wanderers victory on that occasion, saw a tame effort gathered by Allinson.

The hosts won the odd corner which kept the Wanderers back four on their guard as they battled in vain to get back into the tie.

Clough spurned another chance when put through by Thorpe. Although under pressure, he should have done better with his right foot as the ball blazed over the bar.

Chris Taylor was the first Wanderers substitute when he replaced Tom Thorpe in the 73rd minute.

Wanderers were getting into good attacking positions but just couldn’t get their efforts on target. Ameobi was another one who should have done better from 18 yards out.

The big attacker went closer a few moments later when his left footed curler – which has served him so well recently - went narrowly wide beyond the diving Allinson.

With time running out, Wanderers were getting more frustrated with unnecessary free-kicks being given away.

Parkinson made his last throw of the dice with five minutes remaining when he brought on Keshi Anderson and Jamie Proctor for Lawrie Wilson and Zach Clough.

With the game in its dying embers, captain Spearing summed up Wanderers' fortunes by blazing over when he charged on to the loose ball.

just got back and it's a difficult one to sum up, everything just seemed to be 10% off where it has been the last few games, we where slower closing down, our passes often where wide of the mark and any chances we created we failed to test the keeper.

A real all round poor display, the most worrying thing was that you could see this at half time and yet Parkinson persisted with the same players and when a change eventually did come it was the usual Chris Taylor on for one of the midfielders. He did eventually bring Proctor and Anderson on but it was far too late and for some reason Anderson seemed to play almost a deep midfield role and never got into an attacking area of the pitch.

Playing as bad as we did if we had a natural finisher we still could have nicked a point if not three, found myself wondering what has happened to Clayton?

God we were bad. None of them turned up, spearing sloppy in possession, Ameobi looked pissed, Vela invisible and clough was the worst of the lot, missed two clear chances to equalise and his overall attitude was rather petulant i noticed.

Very disappointing infront of a fantastic following

Just throwing this out there, but what the fuck does Parkinson see in Chris Taylor? he is not a footaller I have played at a decent level, and can see phases of games where players contribute, but never have I seen anything positive from that piece of shit, he's clearly doing something in training, but plays like a pussy in game, all in all he's dogshit.

I  Would usually agree, he did have some impact when he came on.

We seemed to go up a gear and look a bit better in midfield, suspect that is because he took Thorpe off and with Taylor further up the park we where pressing sooner.

I don't understand why he picks Thorpe ahead of Derek.

Thorpe will be back off to Rotherham at some point, surely it's better to pick a player we own especially when he's been superb this season.

Because Thorpe is playing well.
