Just checked and i do have a code to watch this free, it was because of the issues during the Bradford game so ST holders check your emails.

I got mine some time ago, and it's a one use code. So far though, the two youngsters I bought ST's for haven't received one. I'll have to look into it.

Blimey. Mine went through ok, but you have to put your card details in before they knock the ten quid off.
I'll be glad to be back in the ground, if only to make life simpler.

You certainly need to hit the apply button. It then shows the £10 deducted.

This is such an important game. If we win, it suggests we are on the right path with Evatt for now - if we lose it suggests Evatt is naive.
As mentioned elsewhere, these three games against the bottom three teams will define our season.
Squeaky bum time as they said in the noughties or whenever.

Sounds like our game against Southend might be off as they’ve had a COVID outbreak so not great for building momentum.

First things first, must beat Stevenage though. Surely it will be the same team as Salford.

Totally agree but just when you thought they couldn't buy a win all three performed well last week, Thinking Scunthorpe will be the biggest test, but if we have any hope for this season it starts here today at 3pm.

Just to illustrate how crazy this league is, if we were told that in November we would be 3 points behind Salford we would have been happy enough lol.  We have had a roller coaster start bordering on farcical at times, yet we are still only 7 points off the play offs. Lot still in play.

Stevenage FC was founded in 1976, 44 years ago. It was the UK`s first New Town, under the New Town act in 1946.
The 1945 Clement Atlee Government, after the Labour Party had won a landslide victory in 1945, set up a New Towns commision to consider how to best repair and rebuild Urban Communities ravaged by World War Two.
This is possibly the first time these two teams have met.

Preview: Stevenage vs. Bolton Wanderers


Wanderers are back on their travels tomorrow with a first ever trip to Stevenage in Sky Bet League Two. Following four successive home fixtures against Mansfield Town, Crewe Alexandra, Salford City and Newcastle United U21s, Ian Evatt’s men make a trip to the Lamex Stadium.

Pre-Match Quotes:

Ian Evatt: ‘It’ll be tough, they’ll be hard to beat. They haven’t conceded too many goals, but they’re not scoring many either; Alex (Revell) is a young manager and it’s his first year in the job. Bolton Wanderers are a big scalp for any club as we’ve spoken about before, and we have to go there with the right attitude and mentality, and make sure we start the game well. If we do, and perform to the levels I know we can, then I’m hopeful that we’ll get three points.’

Alex Revell: ‘We know it’s going to be a tough game because they’re a good side, but when the players have that self-belief and it clicks, then I’m sure we’ll be an excellent side as well. They’ve got a great squad and some really top talent, but they have a new manager and like anything, it takes time. We’ve really got to focus on ourselves and the way we play because we’ve had some excellent performances that haven’t been rewarded because we haven’t taken our chances.’


How to watch:

Wanderers supporters can watch the clash with Stevenage by purchasing an iFollow BWFC video match pass for just £10 you don’t have to miss a kick.

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:

Harry Brockbank continues his recovery from a hamstring injury, so he’s unlikely to be named in the matchday squad, whilst Dennis Politic of course continues his own recovery from a long-term knee injury.

Matt Gilks is likely to retain his place between the sticks after playing in Wanderers’ last Sky Bet League Two fixture against Salford City. George Thomason returned from his loan spell at Bamber Bridge and produced an impressive cameo during the midweek Papa John’s Trophy victory against Newcastle United Under-21s, and he could well be a part of the travelling squad this weekend.

In the Stevenage camp, Alex Revell boasts an almost full fit squad to choose from. Only duo Jack Aitchison and Elliot Osborne are out of contention with recently sustained ankle injuries


Bookies Odds:

Stevenage win: 8/5

Draw: 11/5

Bolton win: 8/5

Correct as of 20/11/2020 (2.30pm) on skybet.com


Form:

Wanderers head into the weekend’s match buoyed by back-to-back wins in all competitions for the first time this season. Securing three points in a 2-0 Sky Bet League Two victory against Salford City last week, Ian Evatt’s men defeated Newcastle United Under-21s 3-2 in the Papa John’s Trophy earlier in the week.

The last away fixture saw Wanderers beaten 4-0 at Leyton Orient, and they will be hoping to fare much better on the road this time around – aiming for a second league away win of the season, and the first since a 2-1 win against Harrogate Town at Doncaster Rovers’ Keepmoat Stadium.

Stevenage lost on penalties in the Papa John's Trophy at League One Northampton Town during the week and drew their last Sky Bet League Two fixture 1-1 at Morecambe. Previous to that they were beaten 3-1 at Colchester United and have won just a single game in the league this season – a 3-0 home victory against Oldham Athletic on the second weekend of the 2020/21 season.


Last time out:

Saturday’s fixture will be the first ever meeting between the two teams.

Good performance, shouldn’t have been a nervy finish but they saw it out well at the end. Thought Baptiste and Jones had good games today. Onto the next one and up the league.

We bossed the game until they scored at the end of the first half.  After that we were very nervy and seem to have our backs against the wall.  But we got the vital 3 points.  Next up we have another away game against Scunthorpe.  Hopefully another 3 points!

Agree with above, no danger what so ever unti they scored. Some good performances thought Fonz was off the pace slightly but we are in the mix now.

Report: Stevenage 1-2 Bolton Wanderers


Goals from Eoin Doyle and Ali Crawford made it three wins on the trot for Ian Evatt’s men as they beat Stevenage 2-1 at the Lamex Stadium.

The duo gave Wanderers an early two-goal lead before Tom Pett reduced the arrears before the break.

But Wanderers saw the game through to follow on from successive vixtories against Salford City and a midweek Papa John’s Trophy win against Newcastle United under 21s.

Ian Evatt named the same starting XI that defeated Salford City at Bolton Wanderers' last league outing.

Some good play on the nearside saw Nathan Delfouneso link up with Doyle. As the Irishman lost his marker he overhit his cross into the box which went out for a throw-in.

A fantastic finish to complete a great passage of play saw Doyle put Wanderers in front after 14 minutes. Peter Kioso’s cross into the box after receiving Delfouneso’s lay-off was met by Sarcevic, whose powerful shot was parried into the path of the Irishman by Jamie Cumming.

Doyle wasted no time in putting his side in front from close range with an acrobatic effort for his fourth goal of the campaign.

Cumming made a good save to keep out a powerful header from Alex Baptiste who rose to meet Crawford’s well-taken corner. The ball was then eventually cleared to safety by the Stevenage defence.

Sarcevic’s cross into the box was slightly overhit as Wanderers worked well to advance the ball up the field.

The hosts saw a whipped in effort from Arthur Read cleared by Ricardo Almeida Santos for a corner, but Wanderers broke at pace up field to grab their deserved second through Crawford’s first of the campaign.

And what an assured finish it was. Gethin Jones’ measured pass found the Scot on the edge of the box and his astute first time low finish gave Cumming no chance from 15 yards.

Tom Pett pulled a goal back just before the break with a smart finish beyond Gilks after latching onto a cross from the right hand side.

Doyle wasn’t too far away from grabbing his second after some positive play over on the far side. Baptiste put the ball into the penalty area, but the striker wasn’t able to find a way past Cumming who got down to gather the ball.

Delfouneso held on to the ball after running into the channels before teeing up Sarcevic. The Wanderers’ captain’s deep cross just about evaded Doyle at the far post.

Matt Gilks got down well to keep out substitute Danny Newton shortly afterwards, with the forward looking to ask an immediate question of the Wanderers defence.

Some excellent counter attacking play, brought about another great chance for Wanderers with Sarcevic setting up Doyle, whose shot was charged down.

Jones’ follow-up shot was then deflected for a corner as Wanderers tried to capitalise on their attacking momentum.

Cumming made a terrifc save diving to his right to keep out Jones’ effort after the wing-back met Kioso’s low cross.

Gilks made a splendid save at full stretch to keep out a curling effort from Pett after Stevenage pressed forward in search of an equaliser.

Evatt made his first change after 76 minutes with Shaun Miller coming on for Delfouneso. Lloyd Isgrove came on two minutes later for goalscorer Crawford.

The hosts won a free-kick in a dangerous area after Delaney felled Elliott List. The set-play was well defended by Wanderers as the game edged towards full-time.

A superb breakaway led by Miller should have seen Doyle put the result beyond doubt but the striker’s left footed effort was tame.

But Wanderers saw the game through and picked up their successive victory.


Teams:

Stevenage: Cumming, Coker (List 81), Cuthbert, Carter, (Marsh 66), Hutton, Iontton, Read (Akinwande 81), Smith, Marshall, Pett, Oteh.

Subs Not Used: Johnson, Vincelot, Prosser,  Newton.


Bolton Wanderers: Gilks, Jones, Almeida Santos, Delaney, Delfouneso (Miller 76), Doyle, Sarcevic, Crawford (Isgrove 78), Tutte, Baptiste, Kioso.

Subs Not Used: Crellin, Comley, Mascoll, Greenidge, Darcy.

Only one thing to say... "Crellin!"  Poor kid will likely never recover from being shell shocked this season.

God knows why Evatt insisted on making Crellin our first choice keeper, yes he has decent pedigree but it’s quite obvious that he isn’t ready to command a starting spot and that would’ve been evident in training, surely!

Another decent showing.  Looked like a good hiding was on before they scored.
Not sure I'm a big fan of trying to waste time in the corner with 7 minutes on the clock but teams seem to do it.
Otherwise nowt to complain about....on to the next game.

Good performance but we did make hard work of it second half and was hanging on at times. The good thing is we didn't buckle second half bit we could have done with a third to make it easier.

I thought the defence did well and Santos looks great now, it's amazing how much he has improved. Delaney looks good as well and even Baptiste is looking better. The change in keeper has obviously improved us and Gilks pulled off a fantastic save near the end.

Yes, I'm really impressed with Gilks, especially his control of the defence in front of him.
 He really sees the whole picture, he is not just a shot stopper. It's great to see him barking out orders to the other players.  He has made a massive difference to the team, let's hope he stays fit for the whole season.
