I've given over bothering about results now just as Ken has, but we need a match thread so here it is.

I think it's about time we won a game, so I reckon we will start with this one.

I even think we will score more than one goal too!

Chin up chaps!.

Very Happy

Will Parky show any intent to win the game, and if we score the first goal will he show intent to score the game's 2nd goal?

Rotherham have the lowest average crowd in the division so with low gate receipts shouldn't have more expensive, higher skilled players than us

No but they have a manager that goes out to win games, big difference.

They have the second worst away form, however they have drawn 4 of the last six away at Boro, PNE, Blackburn, and Sheff Wed. So could be tricky just feel we are due a bit of luck so a win ?

If we have more than two shots on target it will be progress.

Still can't see past a 0-0 bore-draw.

I can't work how we will set up with this side, particularly on the right hand side?

No obvious right back, Donaldson is a right sided attacker - is he going to play right wing back?

Ameobi is left footed but always plays right wing - surely he's not playing right wing is he?

Donaldson and Ameobi down the right then - presumably Rotherham have no threat down their left wing then?

But then again we have no attack down our left wing either - Buckley and Noone on the bench.

Well I applaud him trying something different, fingers crossed it works.


(possible set up?)

Alnwick

Donaldson, Wheater, Wilson, Beevers, Taylor

Williams, O'Neil, Lowe

Ameobi, Doidge

Report: Bolton Wanderers 2-1 Rotherham United

Goals from Sammy Ameobi and Gary O'Neil saw Bolton Wanderers defeat Rotherham United 2-1 at the University of Bolton Stadium in a Boxing Day Sky Bet Championship clash.

Team News

Phil Parkinson made three changes from his starting line-up against Brentford.

Joe Williams and Mark Beevers came in for Pawel Olkowski and Jack Hobbs, with Clayton Donaldson replacing Will Buckley.

First Half

Wanderers had the majority of the ball and chances in the opening exchanges of the game, with Rotherham being put under immense pressure from the forward line of Clayton Donaldson and Christian Doidge.

The Millers had their first chance midway through the first period, as a Newell cross was chested down by former Wanderers forward Jamie Proctor to strike partner Michael Smith.

The target man shot on the half volley towards the Whites goal, but it didn’t trouble Alnwick.

Joe Newell put a curling delivery into the Trotters area on 25 minutes, with Semi Ajayi nodding towards goal but his header flew off target.

Gary O’Neil floated a set piece into the area just short of the hour mark, finding towering centre half Mark Beevers in the air.

However, the defender’s powered header nestled the wrong side of the Rotherham near post.

Wanderers were piling on the pressure with great force at this point, as a Gary O’Neil cross into the area was nodded down by Doidge into the path of Donaldson who just bundled the ball wide.

But soon after, Sammy Ameobi broke the deadlock and put Wanderers into the lead, as he let fly from just inside the area and placed the ball across Marek Rodak into the bottom right corner of the Millers’ goal.

Paul Warne’s side immediately replied with a goal of their own, as Will Vaulks rose highest in the area to nod the ball past Ben Alnwick from close range.

Jason Lowe hoisted a long throw into the area for Bolton, as it bounced over Ameobi’s head and fell to Andrew Taylor who had his effort deflected wide for a corner.

From the resulting set-piece, O’Neil found Marc Wilson with a free header from the penalty spot but couldn’t find the target.

Second Half

Will Vaulks tried to add to his tally early after the restart, but the Rotherham skipper’s effort flew over the bar and into the stands.

Wanderers had the ball in the back of the net, after Christian Doidge smashed the ball calmly past Rodak into the bottom right corner.

But unfortunately, the play was brought back for an earlier foul committed by Marc Wilson.

Wanderers went agonizingly close yet again soon after, with a Andrew Taylor cross coming out to Joe Williams, who fakes past his man and unleashed a powerful drive on the Millers goal.

The Everton loanee had Rodak beaten, but a Semi Ajayi clearance off the line saw the game remain 1-1.

Rotherham captain Vaulks tested Alnwick’s reflexes on the hour mark, with a snapshot like effort from close range forcing the Wanderers goalkeeper to make a smart save down to his right.

Bolton broke away quickly almost immediately after, with O’Neil spear heading the break away.

Link up play between him, Donaldson and Lowe saw the latter produce a whipped delivery into Christian Doidge, who couldn’t completely wrap his foot around it.

On 65 minutes, midfield maestro Gary O’Neil had Wanderers ahead in this Sky Bet Championship clash, as Clayton Donaldson smashed the ball dangerously across goal, to find O’Neil who finished expertly.

Bolton’s defence begun to get tested, as a shot from the edge of Alnwick’s area saw a combination of numerous Wanderers players avert the danger away.

With eight minutes left of regular time, second half substitute Josh Magennis smashed his shot towards goal from a free-kick, forcing Rodak to palm away the effort into the channel.

Rotherham went close late on, with a Jon Taylor cross finding Ajayi with his head six yards from goal, but his bullet like effort flew over the crossbar.

Another Taylor corner flew into the area with a minute left of regulation play, but Clark Robertson could not find the target for the Millers.

With six minutes added on, the visitors piled on the pressure right to the very end but it wasn't enough as Phil Parkinson's men took all three points in this Boxing Day clash!

Full Time

Wanderers XI: Alnwick, Taylor (Olkowski 67), Lowe, Beevers, Donaldson (Magennis 78), Doidge, Ameobi (Buckley 90+5), Wilson, O’Neil, J. Williams, Wheater (C).

Substitutes: Matthews, Vela, Noone, Hobbs.

I thought we were terrible, but less terrible than Rotherham so deserved the win in my opinion.

We seemed to have more of the ball than usual, but confidence is at an all time low. We still can't pass 5 yards without giving it away.

I was glad to see non of the wing-wankers made the team.

But a win is a win, and looking at the league table it doesn't look too bad - I'm amazed we haven't been cut adrift by this long winless run.

I'd still sack Parky mind.

Totally agree with Nat in that we were very poor today, Rotherham poorer so no brainer we were going to win, hard to see where the next points are coming from though, that said I thought Lowe played really well at full back and O'Neil was brilliant but other than them 2 we were all at sea with our play.

Not a performance to get over excited about, but with 12 shots 4 ot it's a slight improvement largely due to Rotherham's lack of quality giving us a bit more freedom. Nice to see O'Neil getting further forward where his experience and skill gave us the creativity and calmness at the business end which has been lacking for so long. Loved the cool headed finish. Not sure we'd get away with that set up against better teams but can't complain about the approach to this game which was at least positive for the most part.

Couldn't get to the game as no trains running but listened to the 2nd half on the radio. Didn't sound like a classic but we won that's the main thing. We need to carry it on and beat Stoke but that will be a lot harder even with their dodgy recent form.
