Match Previews

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Millwall

10 April 2018

As Wanderers prepare to welcome Millwall to Macron Stadium on Tuesday night, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the match.

1. Last night game

Wanderers take on Millwall on Tuesday in their last night game of the season.

With the Whites needing to respond after recent defeats to Leeds United, Birmingham City and Derby County, manager Phil Parkinson has called on Bolton's supporters to be the 12th man and make the difference at Macron Stadium.

With night games always guaranteeing a special atmosphere, the players will need you – our fantastically loyal supporters - in full voice to create a buzzing atmosphere and get BL6 rocking under the lights!

2. Bouncing back

The Trotters will be looking to make home advantage count and bounce back in front of their home fans on Tuesday after suffering three consecutive defeats.

Wanderers could potentially move two places clear of the relegation zone with a victory over The Lions, giving them some extra breathing space ahead of the final four games of the season.

The team’s form at Macron Stadium has been impressive this season, with last Tuesday’s defeat to Birmingham City only their second on home turf since the Christmas period and just their third since late-September.

And with every point vital in the Whites' quest to secure their place in the Sky Bet Championship next season, Bolton know how important a positive result could prove to be come the end of the campaign.

3. Head-to-head

Having completed a league double over Millwall last season, the Trotters boast a fantastic record against their East London counterparts.

It’s been 45 years since Millwall picked up three points on Wanderers soil, stretching way back into the Burnden Park era, while the Whites are unbeaten in their last eight games against the Lions with their last defeat coming back in October 2012.

The most recent meeting between the two sides saw a 1-1 draw back in August, as Filipe Morais scored an outstanding free-kick against his former employers to earn Bolton a deserved share of the spoils.

And having also won their last three home meetings with Millwall, the Trotters will be keen to ensure their recent fortunes against the Lions continues comes 8pm on Tuesday night.

4. Injury news

Captain Darren Pratley remains doubtful for Tuesday's game while Jan Kirchhoff is ruled out, but Filipe Morais is battling back from a niggling injury which has kept him out of action since Good Friday.

"Filipe is looking a lot better which is good news for us," said the gaffer. "He’s got a real determination to get out there and play.

"Darren is also making progress – we’re frustrated that he can’t play at the moment but with a nerve injury it’s very difficult for the specialist to give a definitive answer on his return.

"The medical staff are doing everything they can to get him back involved."

5. Kids for a quid and free upgrades

Following the 21,097 crowd in the last home encounter – the highest attendance of the campaign - the club have extended the special Kids for a Quid offer, encouraging supporters to bring the whole family to Macron Stadium.

This means children under the age of 18 can watch their heroes for just £1, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Match Reports

Report: Bolton Wanderers 0-2 Millwall

10 April 2018

Bolton Wanderers suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of play-off chasing Millwall at Macron Stadium on Tuesday night.

Goals either side of the break from Tom Elliott and Ben Marshall ensured the visitors ran out winners on the night.

TEAM NEWS

Phil Parkinson made a total of six changes from the side that lost to Derby County on the weekend. Jon Flanagan, Andrew Taylor, Derik, Craig Noone, Sammy Ameobi and captain Darren Pratley all returned to the starting Xl with Mark Little, Antonee Robinson, Reece Burke, Jem Karacan, Will Buckley and Aaron Wilbraham dropping to the bench.

FIRST HALF

Wanderers began with purpose with widemen Craig Noone and Sammy Ameobi pushing high up the pitch and applying pressure from the off.

The first chance of the game fell to the visitors. Tom Elliott played a nicely weighted through ball to Jed Wallace, who squared for George Saville but the midfielder got his feet tangled and the move petered out.

Bolton created two opportunities of their own moments later. Ameobi clipped the post from a tight angle before picking out Noone, whose header at the back post was scrambled away.

Enjoying the bulk of possession, the Whites grew in momentum as the first-half progressed and were inches wide of taking the lead when Noone’s whipped in cross from the right deflected off Adam Le Fondre and the ball flashed just wide of the post.

Wanderers pressed high and forced their opponents into an error when Le Fondre pounced on Wallace’s misplaced back pass. Bearing through on goal one-on-one with goalkeeper Jordan Archer, the striker ran out of time and space and the opportunity fizzled out.

Millwall immediately launched their own attack with Wallace racing forward down the right-hand side and seeing his effort blocked by Andrew Taylor.

Karl Henry then tested Archer with a volley from the edge of the 18-yard box following some tricky wing play by Ameobi.

The deadlock was broken in the 33rd minute when Ben Marshall swung in an inviting delivery and Elliott was on the end of it, cushioning his header past Ben Alnwick.

Noone produced a long-range strike which travelled high over the crossbar, as the Trotters headed into half-time trailing.

SECOND HALF

The second period began with Elliott rising highest from Wallace’s cross and steering his header off target.

Several minutes later, Saville’s weak shot lacked sufficient power to worry Alnwick.

Parkinson made an attacking double substitution on the hour mark, with Derik and Noone being replaced by Zach Clough and Filipe Morais, making his first appearance since Good Friday.

Wanderers’ chances of getting back into the contest were dealt a heavy blow in the 62nd minute, however, when the Lions doubled their lead through the lively Marshall.

Mahlon Romeo marauded forward down the right-hand side, and with Clough unable to keep up, the Antiguan and Barbudan international neatly pulled the ball back for Marshall who rifled home from close range.

Millwall’s No.44 could have had a second to his name 10 minutes later, yet Alnwick was alert to parry away his long-range effort.

Pratley made way for Josh Vela in Bolton’s final substitution, but the Whites were unable to mount a late comeback in the latter stages of the match as the visitors went home with all three points.
