It may be April Fool's Day but we can't afford to fall for any tricks as our home match on Saturday kicks off a week of 3 games that could prove decisive in our bid to get back to the Championship.

As we fight to for automatic promotion, Chesterfield will be preoccupied with fighting for their survival in League One as they are currently sitting 10 points away from safety.

On paper, it shouldn't be much of problem as they haven't won since they beat Swindon away on the 4th March and half our fans and the media seem to think we have promotion in the bag already, but with Parky and the lads having an eye on Tuesday's and Saturday's big away clashes there is just a tiny possibility that minds won't on the immediate job at hand.

Surely we are too professional to slip up in this one? I'm thinking 3-1 home win.

We're in  a great position. A position those below us would love to be in.

However,I've been a Wanderer long enough to know that,if anyone can cock this up,we can.

That said,I think we've hit our stride at just the right time,and I fancy a 3,or even 4 goal win.

Absolutely no idea how this will play out.

I haven't bothered predicting any results this season because I have learnt that I am not very good at it.

So I'm keeping schtum and hoping for the best.

(And don't think I haven't noticed your avi updates, Bounce. It's all getting noted...)

I bought the programme as well Bonce but I was never one to chase autographs. I remember those years not doing much under Jimmy Armfield although he did get us back to the second division in 73 and his win rate was pretty good TBF.

That magazine scarred me - specifically a team photo of City where Frannie Lee's knob was hanging out of his shorts. They always had a team photo centrefold and I think it was the late '60s when that particular horror show was shared throughout England.

Ref watch: Eddie Ilderton to take charge of Chesterfield clash

Eddie Ilderton will take charge of Bolton Wanderers’ clash with Chesterfield at Macron Stadium on Saturday.


The Tyne & Wear-based official has run the rule over nine Whites’ matches in the past, the most recent being Bolton's dramatic 2-2 draw away at Bradford City earlier in the season.

In the 14 matches he has overseen so far this season, Mr Ilderton has handed out 43 yellow cards and two red cards.

Anthony Moore and Glen Hart will run the line, while Matthew Bristow is the fourth official.

Apparently sold over 20.000 tickets for this one, and with pay on the day could end up around 25.000.

Fiver a ticket. The parking will cost more than the game. But with parking and food and drink out is still gonna cost about forty quid for the two of us.   Hopefully it will be worth it with a good atmosphere

Decided to elbow the Macron bus and get there early. Don't fancy being hampered by all those armchairs.
I'll potter about ASDA looking shifty.
Nothing new there really.

just read that they are putting home fans in the lower South stand as well, can't remember the last time that happened? Could be close on 20K attendance on Saturday by the sounds.

Lets hope they've ordered extra pies and beer  Very Happy

Won't bother me. I just scoff a bag of crisps at half time,and that's me done. Some people around me seem to think HT is an opportunity for a picnic.
You wouldn't believe what they pull out of their bags.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Chesterfield

1. Community Fiver


Bolton Wanderers fans attending this weekend’s game will pay just £5 to watch Phil Parkinson’s men in action for the Club’s annual Community Fixture.

Tickets are just £5 for all Whites supporters in the home sections of Macron Stadium and before the game they’ll be plenty of fun to be had around the stadium.

The Tower FM roadshow will be based in the town Centre on Saturday morning from the hours of 10am-1pm while you can also join the Kicks tournament at Castle Hill ahead of the game.

Elsewhere, a Samba band will be performing outside Bolton Central, a FIFA Tournament will take place in the Community Stand while Zoo Storm will be going into areas of the ground for people to trial some Virtual Reality.

If you know someone who isn’t coming this weekend, tell them to buy their ticket NOW!


2. Back at Macron Stadium

It feels like forever since we’ve heard Macron Stadium roar in support of the lads. We’ve racked up over 1,000 miles since the 11th March with just one home game taking place since that win over Fleetwood.

After wins on the road against both Oxford United and Shrewsbury, it’s time to get back home and entertain a passionate BL6 crowd.

Early indications are showing this weekend will be our biggest attendance of the season with over 20,000 fans expected through the gates.

As ever, we thank you for your tremendous support.


3. Six on the Spin?

Fleetwood Town, Gillingham, Northampton Town, Oxford United and Shrewsbury Town have all suffered defeat at the hands of Phil Parkinson’s side during the month of March.

This weekend we aim to make it six wins out of six when Chesterfield make the journey across the Pennines to Lancashire.

We have recorded six consecutive wins once this season recording wins over Blackpool, Swindon, Oldham, Millwall, Bury, Port Vale and Grimsby earlier in the season.

This run, however, featured wins in different competitions including the Checkatrade Trophy and The Emirates FA Cup, we are yet to put together six consecutive Sky Bet League One wins.


4. Injuries and Rotation


Phil Parkinson did receive some bad news during the 2-0 win over Shrewsbury Town last Saturday in the shape of injuries to Ben Alnwick, Andrew Taylor and Gary Madine.

It appears all three will miss the weekend’s game against Chesterfield with Mark Howard taking the place of Alnwick. The left-back position could be one of a number of players with Dean Moxey and Reece Wabara the two who could slip in without shuffling the formation.

Finally, we could see Chris Long take the place of Madine as we saw at Greenhous Meadow.


5. In form players 


Such is the case when you put together a run of positive results you more often than not get player’s performing to the best of their ability.

Darren Pratley and Gary Madine have been unplayable at times, while Josh Vela and Dorian Dervite have also put in a string of impressive performances.

It’s also hard to ignore what Filipe Morais has done of late, the Assist King registered another two assists against Shrewsbury Town.

Elsewhere, Mark Beevers and David Wheater are showing their goal scoring prowess, the defensive duo have a combined 13 goals this season now with Beevers scoring four in his last five.

Adam Le Fondre has also been in the goals, the striker has netted five times in his last five games. The only game he didn’t score in was the 4-2 win over Oxford in which he was subbed after 35 minutes with concussion.

That means there's usually some tosser in my seat when I arrive- and usually won't shift.
Everything has a downside!!
Strange how if you really try you can dredge up some misery from even the best of circumstances.
Anyway we'll win this one 3-1

This [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] match preview has some interesting quotes from Iles who has apparently put the kiss of death on us by stating that recent results have fans thinking that we could overtake Sheffield United. The only thing that could achieve is to ensure that they will be fired up tomorrow so thanks Marc. Meanwhile the local editor talks about Chesterfield going for the double over us. Includes video of the game we lost at the Proact which doesn't make for pleasant watching especially Clough missing the 1 on 1 with the keeper and Spearing's wayward passing. Still that was then.

There will be no Radio Nuts today as I'm working away today unfortunately.

This is not an April Fool and everything will be back to normal for the next game!

Cheers.

That's why I'm coming early. The Macron bus doesn't get us there until half two on a normal match day,so I'm giving it the elbow. It'll probably get stuck today.
Bloody armchair supporters!
