‘Something has to give now’ – Plenty of Bolton fans were left frustrated with one man after defeat at Sheffield Wednesday

  ‘Something has to give now’ – Plenty of Bolton fans were left frustrated with one man after defeat at Sheffield Wednesday It was a disappointing day for Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, as they were beaten 1-0 by Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. Lee Gregory’s goal, his third of the season for the Owls’, fired in from close range from Jack Hunt’s cross midway through the second half, was enough to secure all three points for the hosts.

Bolton boss Ian Evatt has spoken out about the current card system in football and believes there should be an option to ‘appeal’ yellow cards going forward according to The Bolton News. The club are currently flying high in the third tier in seventh place and will want to keep their good run going, as they look to potentially break into the top six. Wanderers have compiled a good selection of players now and have an exciting talent on their hands in Oladapo Afolayan, who has bagged six already this campaign.

Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt has claimed to The Bolton News that Eoin Doyle’s issues in front of goal for his side will not be long lasting. The 33-year-old striker has failed to score in his last five games for the Trotters and was once again guilty of missing some guilt edged opportunities for his side in their recent 1-0 away loss to Sheffield Wednesday.

Bolton Wanderers were on the wrong end of a 4-0 scoreline when they hosted Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The Trotters were brushed aside by Leam Richardson’s men with ease despite having made a strong start to the season.

Evatt made four changes from his side’s 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday the week before and may need to shuffle his pack once again on Tuesday evening for the long away trip.

The manager is desperate for some of his fringe players to step up to the mantle against the table topping Pilgrims and Evatt explained why that is when he spoke to The Bolton News.

  2 of Bolton Wanderers’ most exciting youngsters: Is a first-team chance on the horizon? What do they offer? Bolton Wanderers suffered a frustrating 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday as they failed to capitalise on teams around them not being in action during the international break.

Ian Evatt believes today's clash in the Papa John's Trophy against Newcastle United's youngsters is an 'audition' for those Bolton players seeking a regular place in the Wanderers team. The Trotters are poised to ring the changes for this evening's match at the University of Bolton Stadium. Wanderers head coach Evatt has confirmed that no players who started last Friday's 2-0 victory over Salford City will be involved against the Magpies. He has also confirmed that goalkeeper Billy Crellin will start the match instead of Matt Gilks, who played against the Ammies.

There is now less than a month to go until the start of the season but the Trotters boss may be keen to add a few more signings. With that in mind, here is all the latest Bolton transfer news… Bolton CEO issues positive statement. © Provided by Football League World. Bolton ’s new CEO Neil Hart was only appointed last week but he’s already saying all the right things.

He said: “Obviously with the injuries we’ve got and suspensions now that there are opportunities for people and they have to stand up and take those opportunities.

“There are no good knocking on my door saying ‘I want to play and why am I not playing?’ when you’re given the opportunity and you don’t take it.”

Competition for places is essential in the Football League and has played a significant role in Bolton’s positive start to the season. Amadou Bakayoko started on Saturday and is battling it out with Lloyd Isgrove and Elias Kachunga for a spot on the right wing.

The Verdict

Over the course of 46 games the squad assembled in the summer goes under intense examination. The credentials of the likes of Harry Brockbank, who came in for Gethin Jones against Wigan, at third tier level are yet to be established and the challenge of Ryan Lowe’s Plymouth will provide a point to judge him on.

Bolton’s tight knit core has its pros and cons, some players thrive off being relied upon but it shows a lack of depth in certain positions. For example, if Eoin Doyle or Oladapo Afolayan were to pick up a knock, the Trotters may not be the same team.

After an excellent start to the season, Bolton Wanderers have been stopped in their tracks a bit and have only picked up one point from the last available 15.
