Remember earlier today when I was pondering over whether or not now is a good time to ban the internet?

I think that's just sealed the deal.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Crystal Palace

1. Home comforts 
After clinching back-to-back home victories over the festive period against Shrewsbury Town and Scunthorpe United, Wanderers will be chasing an 11th successive victory at Macron Stadium when they host Crystal Palace this weekend!

Conceding just five goals at BL6 during this run, the last time the Whites failed to win at home came back in early October while they have lost just twice on home soil in all competitions this season.

Having reached at least the fourth round every year for the past seven seasons, Bolton will also be looking to maintain this run on Saturday.

But with Premier League opposition standing in their way, Phil Parkinson's men know they will have to be at their best if they are progress in the competition. 


2. Lee Chung-Yong and Sam Allardyce
Saturday's game will see two Trotters fan favourites return to Macron Stadium with the Eagles.

Lee Chung-Yong left Wanderers to join Palace in February 2015, having made 195 appearances and scored 20 goals in a five-and-a-half-seasons with the Whites.

Elsewhere, former England manager Sam Allardyce recently took over at Selhurst Park having previously enjoyed his most successful managerial stint with Bolton between 1999 and 2007.

While both will be given a warm reception at BL6 as they return to their former stomping ground, the Trotters will be determined to ensure that they have the final laugh at the duo's expense come the final whistle! 


3. Gaffer's got form
The gaffer has developed quite the taste for a cup run in the past during his time with Bradford City.

He was a Capital One Cup finalist with the Bantams in 2013 having knocked out Premier League trio Arsenal, Aston Villa and Wigan Athletic on their way to Wembley.

Parkinson also led Bradford to the FA Cup quarter-finals in 2015, memorably recovering from 2-0 down to beat eventual Premier League champions Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge before seeing off top-flight Sunderland.

Will the gaffer be able to oversee another cup upset against Premier League opposition?


4. Max Clayton
Max Clayton proved to be one of the most popular goalscorers of the season when he returned from injury to net a last-minute equaliser against Coventry City on Monday.

The forward has endured an injury-plagued two-and-a-half seasons at Macron Stadium, but has endeared himself to the Club's supporters by showing his quality when fit.

His appearance against the Sky Blues was only his second of the season, and his first in league football since November 2015.

Eager to prove himself between now and the end of the campaign, the former England youth international could now be in line for a first start of the season against Palace on Saturday.

And with Sammy Ameobi's loan spell from Newcastle United coming to an end, Clayton will be hoping to establish himself as one of Wanderers' main attacking threats before May as he looks to put his injury problems of the past behind him.


5. James Henry
Having seen his loan spell from Wolverhampton Wanderers extended, James Henry is another player who will be hoping to impress for the Whites during the second half of the campaign.

The wideman is available for Saturday's clash with the Eagles having seen the relevant paperwork go through just minutes before Friday's 12pm deadline.

And having scored an injury-time winner on his last appearance at Macron Stadium against Scunthorpe United, Henry will be hoping for more of the same when Bolton line up against the Eagles.

Lee Chung-Yong relishing Wanderers reunion

Lee Chung-Yong is looking forward to facing Wanderers in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday as he prepares to return to Macron Stadium for the first time since his move to Crystal Palace in February 2015.

The South Korean international spent five-and-a-half-seasons with the Whites, making 195 appearances and scoring 20 goals, having joined the club from FC Seoul in the summer of 2009.

And having kept a close eye on Bolton's fortunes since departing BL6, the midfielder is relishing the prospect of renewing acquaintances with his former Club.

"I am looking forward to going back to Bolton," Lee told the Croyden Advertiser. "It will be good to go back there and see everyone.

"I am feeling good about it and looking forward to playing at the Macron Stadium again.

"I had good years there and it will be nice to go back there – I still support Bolton Wanderers."

Lee concluded: "I have a lot of nice memories of Bolton. Still, there are some ex-team mates up there. I hope I can play and play well.

"I still follow Bolton and I hope they can come back up to the Championship. I look out for every result and I am happy to see them doing well in League One."

Palace playing a few peripheral players including Lee and Remy but have the likes of Cabaye and Townsend on the bench if needed:
Speroni
Ward
Kelly
Delaney
Friars
Flamini
Mutch
Ledley
Lee 
Campbell
Remy

Subs:
Perntreou
Cabaye
Tomkins
Townsend
Kaikai
Husin
Wan-Bissaka

We need to be on top form today and Clough in particular needs to turn it on.

Report: Bolton 0-0 Crystal Palace


IN BRIEF


Wanderers and Crystal Palace will go again in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup after a goalless draw at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites enjoyed plenty of opportunities against their top flight counterparts, with Josh Vela seeing a header crash against the woodwork amongst other chances for the home side.

Come full time however, it was all square with both teams in the hat for Monday's fourth round draw.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers made a handful of changes to the side who featured against Coventry City last time out, with Zach Clough, Lawrie Wilson and Tom Thorpe all starting for Phil Parkinson’s side.

Lee Chung-Yong meanwhile lined up against his former employers for the first time since departing Bolton two years ago.

FIRST HALF

There was a noisy cup atmosphere inside Macron Stadium early on in the tie, with both sets of fans making themselves heard from the off.

The visitors meanwhile were signalling their intent inside the early stages too, with Loic Remy – making his first appearance for the Eagles – seeing the offside flag raised against him on a handful of occasions.

Wanderers themselves were ready to cause problems however, and a mazy run into the box and consequent shot from James Henry ensuring that Julian Speroni was on his guard.

Henry was again in the thick of it soon after, with his piledriver from 20 yards stinging the palms of the Argentinian shot-stopper, whilst he also saw a header from eight yards narrowly float over the crossbar.

Gary Madine was next to try his luck with a header, but somehow his thunderous effort flew inches over the goalmouth.

Ben Alnwick was tested soon after meanwhile, with Remy’s drive being palmed away by the shot-stopper.

Wanderers were more than holding their own against their Premier League opponents, with the two-tier difference not even visible as the game reached its half our mark.

With 33 minutes on the clock, a rapid Palace counter attack looked set to open the scoring with Fraizer Campbell in acres of space, only to be pounced by a number of Bolton bodies, while Remy saw an effort smash against the post from distance.

Wanderers were still looking dangerous though on the break themselves, with some superb build-up play deserving more.

But come the half time whistle, the game was still goalless.

SECOND HALF

The visitors made one change at the break – with Yohan Cabaye replacing the ever-threatening Remy – and the clash got back underway at a drizzly Macron Stadium.

And it was Wanderers who came closest to breaking the deadlock inside the opening five minutes, with Henry’s side-footed effort from a tight angle flying agonisingly wide.

The winger – who re-joined the Whites on loan on Friday afternoon – also saw a thunderous 25 yard drive clear the crossbar by a matter of inches soon after.

Palace were looking shaky at the back, with those inside the stadium sensing that a goal couldn’t be far off.

It appeared to have arrived in the 64th minute too, with Henry finding Josh Vela, but the midfielder’s header crashed against the crossbar.

A glorious opportunity, it seemed to boost the Whites even more so and they continued their search for a winning goal.

Up the other end of the pitch meanwhile, substitute Cabaye saw his powerful drive blocked by Wilson with Alnwick seemingly beaten.

It was a superb cup tie with both sides going for the victory, while a double attacking substitution of Max Clayton and Jamie Proctor in place of Clough and Madine with 11 minutes to go only confirmed Bolton’s intent.

With the game in its final stages, Henry saw a shot deflected into the side netting, while Proctor headed straight at Speroni from the resulting corner.

Four minutes were indicated at the end of the 90 and it was all hands to the pump, but Bolton just couldn't find a winning goal and as a result, will head to Selhurst Park for a replay against the Eagles.

Expected us to get battered today but it was a good performance from our lads. Have to say Fat Sam must be worried though if the likes of Remy, Cabaye, Townsend, Ledley and Campbell can't beat a League 1 side.

If we had a clinical finisher in the team we would have done them.

Best game of the season. End to end stuff, can't believe we didn't score.

They had a strong side out yet we could, and probably should, have won 3 or 4-0.

We didn't miss Ameobi at all, in fact I thought we created more chances than we have all season - as Wanderlust says, if we'd had a finisher up top we'd have had it won by half time.

Thought Henry had his best game for us by a country mile, Spearing immense, Vela and Clough not at the races, all in all though great game and we just about edged it.

Their extra quality showed, we just weren't good enough to break them down, if that was a league match against any league one side we'd have won comfortably

Nonsense. Like we didn't need the Anfield and Highbury replays in the 90's ?
Their normal people like the rest of us earning a living, does anyone care if we have to put an extra shift in once in a while ?

Super game. Especially for a 0-0.
Henry was magnificent and it was Parkinson's only mistake to bring him off.

Why the eff is Chris Taylor still getting on the pitch?

Aye, he does tend to flatter to deceive. The lads got boundless energy and enthusiasm (unlike Trotter).
But his misplaced passes and positional play don't do him any favours.

I don't think we should write him off just yet (unlike Trotter), as he hadn't had decent run in a now settled best eleven team.
