Bolton have won their last 3 away league games. #bwfc last won 4 in a row from Dec 2000 to Jan 2001.

Goodbrand stats.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Shrewsbury Town v Bolton Wanderers

1. An unbeaten March



Avoiding defeat this weekend would mean Bolton have navigated the month of March without defeat. It would be only the second time this season Phil Parkinson's men have managed this achievement having come through the month of August without a Sky Bet League One defeat.

Starting the month with a draw against AFC Wimbledon, the Wanderers then overcame Fleetwood, Gillingham, Northampton and most recently, Oxford United.

Scoring 15 goals and conceding six, it's been a memorable month for the travelling White Army. Let's hope that continues at Shrewsbury.

2. Four away wins on the bounce

Bolton fans have travelled far and wide this season and recently, they've been rewarded for their travels.

The 4-2 scoreline on Tuesday night ensured Parkinson's side became the first Wanderers team to score four goals or more in three consecutive away games. Before this run, Bolton had scored four goals in four of the previous 189 games.

The goal that secured the victory, scored by Josh Vela meant the midfielder became the first academy graduate to reach 10 goals since Kevin Nolan who found the net 11 times back in the 2005/06 season.

3. Injuries 


There is, unfortunately, some bad news for Bolton this weekend, this comes in the shape of injuries to Darren Pratley, Jay Spearing, Mark Beevers and Adam Le Fondre.

All four have played their role in helping the Trotters maintain their promotion push, however, they all came away from Oxford with injuries leaving them a doubt for this weekend. 

Rotation will be called upon this weekend to ensure we come back to BL6 with all three points.

4. Filipe Morais

Filipe Morais has more league goals and assists in 2017 than the likes of Neymar, Benzema, Muller and Ozil. The makeshift wingback has certainly hit the ground running after joining the Club in early February.

The former Bradford man has registered nine assists in a Bolton shirt, a number that puts him fourth on the overall tally for Sky Bet League One.

His two goals have also proved important with his first, the winner against Northampton, while his second put us on our way to victory against Oxford United.

Can Filipe contribute towards yet another goal? We certainly hope so.


5. Another outstanding away following


Bolton Wanderers fans deserve a huge amount of credit for the support they've shown the lads this season.

Even manager Phil Parkinson has praised the incredible away support you've provided this season, citing after both the Gillingham and Oxford trips how highly valued your support is.

You continue to go above the call of duty and this weekend sold out the allocation for Shrewsbury meaning the lads will be backed by 1,500 supporters.

Thank you, from the players and staff.

...if he plays!! He's one of the ones that needs a rest because he ran around for about 20 minutes last Tuesday evening and then banged his head. And so he might not be ready for todays match.

He'll play, suspect Pratley will drop out if anyone, but can't see Parky messing too much with a winning side, seven day rest after this one.

I hope Pratley does play as he has made a considerable difference to the midfield.
 Can you imagine saying that a couple of years ago!!

Having a player with a big engine that can close down space (Holden, Muamba for example) changes the dynamic for team members and lets them play more freely. Always thought Pratley was essential to this team despite being reckless in the challenge sometimes (see Pratley's engine is the difference thread) and if he has to be rested I'm worried that the shape will revert back to us sitting deeper and inviting more pressure - which has never worked for us in the past.

He'll certainly be needed for the big away clashes at Southend and Scunny so I just hope we can get through the games against the relegation battlers without him. Karacan is fine but he just doesn't have the engine that Prats has.

I think our title ambitions were sunk when Sheff U dicked us at their place. Despite us being 6 points clear of third, I'm genuinely worried about us winning our games and holding on to second. No time to worry about SU dropping points when we have 7 games to go of which 6 are likely to be a battle.

Bloody hell Wander. Whats the matter with you ?

Six points means that we can, in effect, play two games less than Fleetwood, to retain second place, plus we have the goal difference in our favour. OK, we may lose one or two, but that's our safety net. I don't think they will be going on a run of wins to overtake us. Always the possibility of course, but with such few games left, its going to be very difficult for them.

  • I'm a Bolton Wanderers fan since '58 and we've blown better situations than this 
  • We have a thin squad
  • Scunny and Southend are very strong at home and are absolutely desperate as desperate can be to beat us
  • Peterborough are the only team we have left to play whose fate doesn't hang on beating us. 


I think that on balance that's enough right there to warrant having a degree of concern. Still hoping for the best though.

Shrewsbury where difficult to breakdown today and had they had more composure in front of goal could have got a draw, the difference was Pratley IMO, we didn't create lots of chances and they looked dangerous dropping the ball in behind our wingbacks.

All said it was a hard fought result by a team that has put everything into the last 4 games, bit of a rest and the squad still looks solid enough going into the last seven games, we are on a role and are battling for every point.

Fans where superb today stayed behind for 10 mins singing at the end, Madine made a point of coming over to the fans at the end of the game and gave his shirt to a young lad nice touch.

If we maintain our average of 2 points per game we should be ok, it's still difficult but Fleetwood have to win two more games than us to get level and the rest more than that. It's good that there is something on every game, should stop any complacency setting in. Scunny and Bradford tomorrow and Blades v Millwall on Tuesday should be interesting before we play again next week. Just looking at Fleetwood's fixtures, they have 3 aways on the bounce same as us after Saturday.

Keep the faith.

i'm not bothered about finishing first or second just as long as we go up automatically and don't have to go through the play-off lottery. Second place looks more likely with a 6 point gap to Fleetwood and i'd take that in a heartbeat

Ivan Toney scored an equaliser and Matt Crooks gave Scunny the lead. Now they've brought on our very own Craig Davies for the last few minutes. Scunny will still think they're in with a shout of nicking automatic promotion off us.


Result Scunny 3 Bradford 2 with Scunny hanging on desperately in the 6 minutes of extra time. Bradford had 22 (eight OT) shots compared with Scunny's 8 (4)
