Surely a "must win"?
Grimsby are bottom of the league but they've only played two games and they were against top 3 Salford and a narrow loss away to mid table Walsall so their position might be deceptive. And they've had a two week break to prepare.
Certainly a must win for Grimsby, but I think it's equally important for us, especially from a confidence perspective.
Don't think there's going to be much in it but I'm plumping for us to win by the odd goal.

On a different note, can iFollow be purchased for home games or is that only for season ticket holders?

These haven't had a game or barely trained for 3 weeks, if we can't beat an unfit team who also have had a bad start, then Evatt needs to rethink his systems.

I'd imagine they'll have trained non-stop - with a particular focus on how to beat us. 3-1 would be fantastic but I can't see it.

Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs Grimsby Town


Wanderers return to Sky Bet League Two action on Saturday afternoon when they host Grimsby Town at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers will be buoyed by their league victory away against Harrogate Town last weekend where goals from Eoin Doyle and Nathan Delfouneso saw them pick up three points at the Keepmoat Stadium.


Pre-Match Quotes:

Ian Evatt: “I know their Ian Holloway better than anybody and I know he will have them fit, firing and ready to go, no question about it. I do think it will be a game where if we have possession of the ball and move them accordingly and tire them out we should have a physical advantage after 60 minutes, there’s no two ways about that.

“We have played more games, trained more, but we have to make sure we utilise that by moving the ball, keeping it away from them, and then in the last half-hour take over the game and win it.

“That’s how I see it being played, however, we have to actually do it.

“I’d love to build on the win against Harrogate and a very positive performance in midweek at Shrewsbury.

“Ollie is a great character but because he has a bit of a joke and a laugh, or uses the odd analogy here and there, people just don’t give him any credit for his tactical nous.

“He knows the game really well and he’s one of those guys who inspires with the way he lives his life in general. His wife, Kim, his family, they are inspirational people and I can’t speak highly enough of him and what he did for me.

“Myself and Matt Gilks were talking recently and it will be great to pitch ourselves against him. We want to win, obviously, but first and foremost it will be great to see him because he was great for us in our careers and taught me so much.”


How to watch:

Supporters can watch the game live on iFollow BWFC by purchasing a £10 match pass.

An iFollow BWFC video match pass will ensure supporters do not miss a minute of the action, with the entire match streamed through any compatible laptop, computer, tablet or mobile device in the United Kingdom.


Team News:

Ian Evatt faces a possible selection dilemma ahead of Saturday’s afternoon’s clash against the Mariners.

Following their victory against Harrogate in the league, Wanderers fielded nine changes in their midweek EFL Trophy tie against Shrewsbury.

Although the Shrews ran out winners, Evatt was pleased with Wanderers’ performance and in particular with that of the younger players in the squad.

Alex Baptiste could also return to the fray after returning to fitness.


Bookies Odds:

Bolton Wanderers win: 1/1

Draw: 5/2

Grimsby Town win: 11/5

Correct as of 9/10/2020 (4am) on skybet.com



Last time out:

The two clubs last met in the Football League in 2001 where they shared a 2-2 draw at the Reebok Stadium. Goals from Gudni Bergsson and Bo Hansen earned Sam Allardyce’s men a point on their way to an eventual promotion to the Premier League courtesy of a play-off final victory against Preston North End at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.

They have played each other 62 times in all competitions with Wanderers edging the head to head encounters with 26 victories to their name against Town’s 17.


Form:

Wanderers come into the game following a midweek defeat in the EFL Trophy at Shrewsbury Town, but will be high on confidence following a morale-boosting 2-1 win against Harrogate Town last weekend.

Grimsby have been without football for a couple of weeks after a spell in isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test in the group. Prior to that, they lost their first two league fixtures of the season, away at Walsall and at home to Salford City.

Thought Santos, Delaney, Tutte were head and shoulders above the rest, Mascoll far better than Gordon, can't work out the three subs, they made us worse.

90 Minutes of sheer frustration.

I think all they do in training is passing sideways and backwards to the goalkeeper.

There just doesn't seem to be any energy or purpose to the play at all.

PATHETIC DISPLAY.

Harry Brockbank had a good game and I thought Comley was tidy enough when he came on but it was all too negative for me. Mascoll was OK but he passed back every time, never taking on the full back so I guess Gordon came on to be a bit more direct and he was. As Norpig says, final ball was poor all day and I thought there were some heavy touches that wasted the opportunity to get the ball into dangerous areas - but mainly the build up was so slow and laboured there was always a wall of defenders in place by the time the ball arrived.
Good that we're not shipping goals but we have to be more direct when we get into their half.

First 20 Grimsby shaded it , we played and applied some decent pressure up to half time and looked the most likely, but we created nothing.

Second half awful, We kept a clean sheet so that in its self is a positive.

Keeper didn't have much to do, thought Delaney and Santos played well, Tutte was solid.

But the big names just didn't turn up Sarcevic still not showing anything, Doyle and Delfounso both had poor games, Crawford is a mystery should be cruising at this level but a no show.

At least we didn't concede a late goal.

There is something wrong with the mid field IMO - can't quiet put my finger on it as I am still learning about the players we have.  We seem plodding and can't get the second ball. The keeping possession part of it is good provided you do something with it....but as we know  - no shots on target or hardly any chances created.....I dunno
Not slamming individual players as of yet but today I couldn't see what our captain contributed also Mascoll was poor......otherwise I suppose we are still gelling. 
5 games in and definately a bottom half team from what I can tell.

Report: Bolton Wanderers 0-0 Grimsby Town

Both sides played out a scoreless encounter as Grimsby Town held Bolton Wanderers at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Despite controlling most of the contest Wanderers were unable to find a way past their opponents who seldom caused any issues for the hosts backline.
​​
​​Ian Evatt made just one change from the side that beat Harrogate Town last weekend with Jak Hickman replacing the injured Gethin Jones.
​​
​​Alex Baptiste returned from injury to be named among the substitutes where he was joined by youngster Regan Riley who impressed in the midweek EFL Trophy encounter against Shrewsbury Town.
​​
​​Wanderers looked slick with their passing game early on and Hickman put in two good balls from the right which narrowly evaded any of the host’s front men.
​​
​​Crellin made a vital block with his feet to deny Terry Taylor who had ghosted in from the right hand side.
​​
​​Wanderers won a free kick from 30 yards out when Delfouneso was felled as he looked to twist away from his man. Crawford took the free-kick well but it went narrowly wide of James McKeown’s right hand post.
​​
​​Hickman was proving to be a very useful threat on the right flank and another cross found Doyle whose layoff for Crawford culminated in the Scot’s powerful first time effort blocked.
​​
​​Wanderers earned another free-kick in a dangerous position when Sarcevic was scythed just out side the box on the right hand side. Again Crawford stepped up to take the kick, which was floated into the box but it evaded the head of Brockbank who was looking to nod towards goal.
​​
​​Another free kick came Wanderers’ way when Sarcevic was feled 20 yards out. Crawford’s free-kick left McKeown flat-footed but it went narrowly wide of the right hand post.
​​
​​Both teams were unchanged during the break, with Wanderers looking to turn their dominance into goals.
​​
​​The hosts were looking comfortable in possession during the early stages of the second period but hadn’t really troubled McKeown in the Mariners' goal.
​​
​​Grimsby had a rare foray into the Wanderers box which culminated in Luke Hendrie firing over from just out side the box.
​​
​​Delfouneso spurned a good chance when Tutte found him just outside the box. The striker could only the the ball over the Grimsby goal.
​​
​​Alex Baptiste came on for Hickman after 66 minutes as Evatt made his first change of the afternoon.
​​
​​The sub got on the end of a Crawford corner but, under pressure from a Town defender, could only guide his volley wide of goal.
​​
​​Evatt made a double subsitution with 15 minutes to go when Gordon and Comley came on for Mascoll and Tutte.
​​
​​Terry Taylor flashed wide from a good position after Wanderers lost possession deep in their own half.
​​
​​Despite six minutes being added on, Wanderers weren't able to break the deadlock.
​​​

​​Wanderers: Crellin, Hickman (Baptiste 66), Mascoll (Gordon 75), Tutte (Comley, 75), Delaney, Almeida Santos, Brockbank, Sarcevic (c), Crawford, Doyle, Delfouneso
​​
​​Subs Not Used: Greenidge, Darcy, Gnahoua, Riley


Grimsby: McKeown, Hendrie, Pollock, Waterfall, Preston, Clifton, Rose, Taylor, Windsor (Scannell 76), Green (Gibson 64), Williams (Edwards 64).

Subs Not Used: Battersby, Idehen, Mohsni, Tilley.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but watching that match is probably the most positive I’ve felt so far this season.

Two reasons for that, firstly, the defence - Santos was brilliant in the middle of a back 3, calm on the ball, quick to sense danger and aggressive when he needed to be - overall he showed he can dominate at this level and it’s the most solid we’ve looked so far this season.

Up front, Doyle’s the best striker we’ve had in a long time - relative to the league he’s playing in at least, busy, clever and always demanding the ball. With better support it’s obvious why he’s a 20 goal a year striker in this league.

Obviously there are issues though, our midfield isn’t setup right. I like Crawford and Sarcevic but it felt as if they’re both trying to float between defence and midfield which left us with no shape and easy to pass through. Both are good players, but I’d push Sarcevic up alongside Doyle and bring in a midfielder.

I like Tutte, but he’s being asked to do two jobs at the moment in my opinion. He either needs to be a defensive midfielder or a number 8 who can transition the ball between defence and midfield, at the moment him doing both leaves us too open.

Also, I’m not sure Delfuenso is up to it. If we had someone who either dominated in the air or had pace  I think Doyle would find more space.

Second half was poor. Can only imagine Hickman was injured to have come off as he seemed the most likely to create something?

Anyway, encouraging to see us looking more solid at the back, if we can sort out midfield and offer some better support to Doyle I think we have a promotion challenging team.

Funny how we all pick up on different aspects of the game and I can see what you mean but I think Doyle was forced too deep and kept running into defenders and losing possession whereas Delfuoneso held it up better - but neither hardly got into the box apart from set pieces. In possession the build up was too slow and ponderous with a lot of backward and sideways passing so they never got anything to run on to.
We seem to have gone from pushing on and shipping goals to holding back but losing the attacking threat. Somehow we have to bridge the gap between front and back and do it with purpose when we have the ball instead of just focusing on keeping it in unthreatening areas. We had tons of possession but not in the "red zone". Bottom line was zero shots on target, hence no goals.

Surely a good manager will adapt his approach to the players at his disposal.......rather than insist on his preferred system that the squad can't really manage, especially when his recruits have been mainly acquired from lowly teams where pass and move may not have been the norm.

Imo, the team is crying out for a forward who is good in the air, an SKD-type, who can get on the end of crosses and hold the ball up. At the moment midfielders are hesitant about how to get the ball forward successfully on the deck.

 That doesn't mean that we should then resort to constant hoof ball, but gives the option for the occasional launch from the back so that the ball doesn't immediately come straight back when we are under pressure.

I agree with TROY. There were a few positives that could be taken from the game. Overall, they seemed to be settling into their roles, and their joined-up play was definitely better, (it'll be good when they find the final link from midfield to attack). One thing they lacked from the game before was the speed of play, and this sideways and backwards passing drives me nuts. By all means play from the back, but not keep it at the back. We have the higher percentages for possession because of the tippy tappy football within the defence, not outfield play. I still think Crellin is suspect.
If we had played the same game at a much higher tempo, I think we could have got even more out of the game. They are gelling, and I believe they will be a good team, I just hope its sooner rather than later.
