Losing this would be a disaster IMO - worse if Sordell scores for them - and given our luck that is a distinct possibility. Burton may be the poor relations in this division, but Clough seems to be starting to get some decent performances out of them lately and they were unlucky to concede late to Derby in their last away game so our lot need to have their heads in the right place from the off.
I am assuming that Parky will have them fired up for this one as it's our best chance of consolidating our position so I predict we'll win. 2 - 1.

Tinned Toms - You know it makes sense!
Massive game this but we do have a habit of cocking things up and not taking advantage of the half decent positions we occasionally manage to get ourselves into. Should be winning this but I'm fully expecting a bore draw.

Only lost two of there last 6 away games, so not a given, They complain of poor strikers  on thier board recently, so guessing Sordell is good news for them and a potential banana skin for us. If we are not up for this one then something is wrong. 2-1 Ameobe

Pratley a huge doubt so that's an advantage, I'd put Vela in mid-field and ALF up top with Madine, 3-1

Ref watch: Andrew Madley to man Burton Albion match

Andrew Madley will man Wanderers' Sky Bet Championship clash with Burton Albion at Macron Stadium on Saturday.

Currently amidst his seventh season as a professional referee, the West Yorkshire-based official first took charge of a Whites game back in January 2013 for Bolton's 1-1 draw with Millwall at Macron Stadium.

Since then the official has overseen a further seven Trotters games including two this year - the Wanderers' away defeat at Ipswich Town and home draw with Reading.

He has refereed 22 games so far this campaign, dishing out 60 yellow cards and no red cards.

James Wilson and Paul Hodskinson will run the line while Mark Heywood is the fourth official.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Burton Albion



As Wanderers host Burton Albion on Saturday afternoon in their latest league outing, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the Whites' Sky Bet Championship clash with the Brewe.


1. Home form


Wanderers head into this weekend's game with Burton Albion unbeaten from their last five matches at Macron Stadium.
Opening October, November and December with victories against Sheffield Wednesday, Norwich City and Barnsley respectively, the Whites had only late goals to curse for not also clinching maximum points against Queens Park Rangers and Reading.

Now hosting the Brewers at BL6, Phil Parkinson's men will be looking to make home advantage count once again heading into a busy festive period.

2. Bouncing back


After losing just two of their last ten outings, the Trotters' will be determined to bounce back at the first time of asking this weekend after last Saturday's frustrating defeat to Nottingham Forest.

Out of the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone on goal difference, Wanderers' next run of fixtures could be decisive come the end of the season.

Facing off against the second tier's current basement club, a victory for the Whites would offer real momentum with every point vital in the upcoming festive run of games.

3. Team news


Having returned to training towards the end of the week, a late decision will be made on Bolton captain Darren Pratley as he continues to contend with a knee problem.

Elsewhere, David Wheater could return at the heart of defence after sitting out last weekend's defeat to Nottingham Forest while Adam Le Fondre is likely to sit out after suffering with tonsillitis.

4. Six-pointer?


The Trotters currently sit two points and three places above 24th placed Burton Albion as the season nears its midway point, highlighting how quickly things could change in the Sky Bet Championship relegation fight this year.

Above Sunderland by a point while only ahead of Birmingham City on goal difference, Saturday's game is a real six-pointer as Wanderers look to make a statement of intent heading into the festive period.

Win and they should stay ahead of the chasing pack. Drop points and they face falling back into the relegation zone, with at least Burton guaranteed to overtake them if they come out on top against the Whites this weekend.

Whatever happens, Bolton will need their vocal support on Saturday and over the second half of the season. Be loud, be proud and back the boys!

5. Signing session


Bolton Central will be hosting a signing session prior to Saturday's game against Burton, with two players present in the club's retail outlet to meet fans from 2pm onwards.

With the Trotters' 2017/18 [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] shirts back in stock in stock, plenty of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on offer including '[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]', the club's 2016/17 promotion-winning commemorative book, and Bolton's official matchday programme, 'The Wanderer', also on sale, fans will have plenty of opportunities to get merchandise signed!
 
The players due to attend will be confirmed in due course.

Jesus Martin we've not even kicked off yet and you're on his back already.

We've lost twice in the last ELEVEN games and one of those we lost was against Wolves who are the best team in the league by a country mile.

He's done that with a team that clearly wasn't finalised when we fell foul of the tightened restrictions by the Football League and it was only when Anderson finally saw off Holdsworth and sorted out his BluMarble mess that he was able to bring in any midfield defence at all!  If Spearing hadn't been a greedy fuck we'd probably not be in such a mess in the first place!

It's no coincidence that we went on that run when we finally signed Henry to get a bit of bite in midfield.

Yes he's had to play catch up since then and that's why he's clung on to points rather than play confidently for wins.

Until we can strengthen the team in January (and allow the new players to bed in) we will just be doing the same as for the last three months - concentrate in staying in this league.

It's not rocket since ffs - even if you don't like it.

I have a sneaking feeling that Brum will beat QPR today. Not a complete disaster in itself as it would be useful if QPR get dragged into the relegation battle, but it's important that we win and ideally by a greater margin than Brum. Sunderland have a chance against Fulham too. Cattermole is suspended and they've gone for James Vaughn so it will be a very attacking line up for their home tie. 
If we can win today by a decent margin we should stay out of the bottom three and close the gap on several teams above us, especially if Brentford and Cardiff win. Anything less and I suspect we'll be back in the bottom three. Parky needs to go for it today.

Report: Bolton Wanderers 0-1 Burton Albion

Bolton Wanderers’ five-match unbeaten run at Macron Stadium came to a disappointing end when Lloyd Dyer’s first half volley gave Burton Albion all three points on Saturday afternoon

Wanderers were unable to find a way past Stephen Bywater in the Burton goal as they created enough chances to win the contest.

Team News:

Stephen Darby was named in the starting XI at the expense of Mark Little, who missed out with a back injury. Otherwise it was the same side that narrowly lost out to Nottingham Forest a week earlier as Phil Parkinson’s men aimed to fortify their unbeaten record on home soil.

First Half

Wanderers could have got themselves in front with barely a minute on the clock when Stephen Bywater was pressed into action to parry away a curling right footer from the in-form Will Buckley.

The home side seemed intent on getting their noses in front as soon as they could and Gary Madine was thwarted by a great tackle just as he was shaping up to shoot after a superb breakaway from Sammy Ameobi.

At the other end, Ben Alnwick had to be alert to keep out a Marvin Sordell header after Lloyd Dyer managed to squeeze in a decent cross from the far side.

But Wanderers responded positively and a superb overlapping run and cross into the box from Darby culminated in Karl Henry miss-hitting the ball.

Wanderers were controlling possession during the early exchanges with the visitors struggling to get to grips with the pace of the game.

Bywater kept out Buckley once again on 18 minutes when the Wanderers wideman latched onto to a loose ball which was comfortably gathered by the Brewers’ gloveman.

The visitors, though, showed they were more than capable of causing their own threats and Wanderers were grateful to Alnwick for keeping out a powerful drive from Dyer at the near post.

Nigel Clough’s men were getting more into the game and Wanderers didn’t display the energy they had shown earlier on.

Indeed, they got their noses in front completely out of the blue when Dyer unleashed an unstoppable left-footed volley that gave Alnwick no chance.

Chances didn’t come as freely as they did early in the game for Wanderers but Ameobi looked to be the most likely man in a white shirt to get the game back on an even footing for the hosts.

On 38 minutes he came in with his left foot and shaped up to get in a trademark strike only for Bywater to be alert to the threat.

 

Second Half

Just as they started the game, Wanderers could have earned an equaliser within minutes of the restart. David Wheater was presented with a glorious chance to qualise when his header from a corner was somehow kept out by a scrambling Burton defence. The ball was still loose and again the visitors stoically defended to keep the follow up out.

The Wanderers boss made his first change just before the hour mark with Filipe Morais coming on for captain Darren Pratley.

Ameobi was inches after from a spectacular goal after playing a splendid one-two with Madine and drifting his left footer narrowly wide.

This was better from Wanderers but they still had plenty to do if they were to get back into the game and take the points.

Wanderers made another attacking substitution on 75 minutes with Craig Noone coming on for Darby.

Again, Bywater was the thorn in Ameobi’s side after the keeper got down low to keep out the striker’s drive.

With the minutes running out, Parkinson made his final substitution of the afternoon with Aaron Wilbraham coming on for Henry.

But despite Bolton's best efforts, they couldn't break the Brewers' rearguard and fell to defeat come the final whistle.

Full Time

Worst of all worlds today bar Brum conceding at the death to drag us off the bottom. Not the ideal preparation for the Cardiff game, so it will be interesting to see what Parky and Anderson make of that. 
Can't afford to replace the manager and I doubt Anderson would get rid of his tame mouthpiece anyway, so it's going to be a fascinating - if depressing - week.

Parky is well out of his depth.

At the end of the day, he really is a League 1 manager at best.
