Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Fulham

9 February 2018

After Friday night's victory over Bristol City, Wanderers are back at Macron Stadium as they host Fulham this Saturday. Looking to maintain their advantage over the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the Whites' clash with the Cottagers.

1. Home form

Having lost just once at home in the Sky Bet Championship since September, Friday night's victory over Bristol City sees Wanderers head into this weekend's fixtures three points clear of the relegation zone.

Boasting a game in hand over their rivals, the Whites know how important every last point will be come the end of the season.

Looking to make home advantage count once again after last week's victory over one of the division's promotion-hopefuls, Bolton will be hoping it's a case of same again against Fulham on Saturday. 

There's no place like home. Back the boys this weekend! Tickets for tomorrow's game are open sale. Click HERE to buy online. 

2. Sammy Ameobi

After selling Gary Madine to Cardiff City on Transfer Deadline Day, the Trotters turned to fellow-Geordie Sammy Ameobi to fill the striker's boots in attack last week, with the 25-year-old responding in memorable fashion.

A constant thorn in the Bristol City defence, Ameobi put in a man-of-the-match performance with his second half solo-efforts sealing all three points for Wanderers.

Utilised centrally, the forward initially supported loanee Tyler Walker in attack before pushing further forward following the introduction for Zach Clough.

Having shown his quality in both positions, and with one eye on a potential Nigeria call-up ahead of this summer's World Cup in Russia, Ameobi will once again be the Whites' one-to-watch when they take to the field against Fulham.

And having already scored once against the Cottagers this season, you would not bet against him proving another decisive contribution!

3. Fulham at February

A quirk of the Football League fixture list, Saturday's game sees Bolton face Fulham for the seventh time in February since 2005, with five of those previous six encounters coming at Macron Stadium.

Although the Trotters' recent form against the Cottagers does not make for pretty reading, it's a different story when it comes to Wanderer's February form against Fulham with the Whites unbeaten in those aforementioned six matches, winning five.

And with their last victory in this fixture coming three years ago to the day of Saturday's match, a game which saw Adam Le Fondre score his first Bolton goal in a 3-1 win, maybe fortune will favour the Trotters come 3pm on Saturday.

4. Club shop signing session

Before the game tomorrow, winger Will Buckley will be in attendance for a signing session from 2pm in Bolton Central.

He will be in the Trotters’ retail outlet to meet supporters and sign autographs and memorabilia - a perfect pre-match treat for fans to take pictures with the Whites' number 11.

There will also be special offers available in Bolton Central including the opportunity to buy Wanderers Return and a 2018 calendar for a combined price of just £5 while there is also 20% off home and away shorts and socks. 

To shop the full range of merchandise meanwhile, please visit www.bwfcdirect.co.uk.

The session will finish with plenty of time to get into the ground for the game, so come down and have your shirts signed by the midfielder!

5. Memories Match

Fans are being encouraged to wear retro shirts at Saturday's game in line with the fixture being Wanderers' official Memories Match in support of those suffering from dementia.

The special matchday is part of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust’s ongoing support of Bolton becoming a dementia friendly town, beginning in Horwich.

The BWCT are part of the Bolton Dementia Action Alliance, which has the aim of bringing local organisations, groups and businesses together to improve the lives of people living with dementia.

Bolton Wanderers are holding this special matchday meanwhile to raise the awareness of dementia, social isolation and loneliness, alongside promoting Bolton Wanderers Community Trust’s Sporting Memories sessions that take place once a month at Macron Stadium.

A variety of fans' and former players' memories meanwhile will be published in the club's matchday programme.

For more information on how the club are supporting Bolton Dementia Action Alliance or on the Trust's Sporting Memories sessions, please visit www.bwct.org.uk or call 01204 673790.

The club's Family Faith Football focus group will also be meeting this weekend, with this particular session entitled 'Memorabilia', with further details available HERE.

Match Reports

Report: Bolton Wanderers 1-1 Fulham

10 February 2018

Adam Le Fondre's sublime half-volley earned Wanderers a deserved draw against promotion-chasing Fulham at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors drew first blood inside five minutes, with Matt Targett’s close-range header eluding Ben Alnwick in the Bolton goal.

But Wanderers were back level just after the hour mark, with Le Fondre's sublime half-volley from 18 yards giving Marcus Bettinelli absolutely no chance whatsoever.

And despite their best efforts to take all three points, they had to settle for just the one come full time.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers made one change to the starting XI who turned out against Bristol City last time out, with Zach Clough coming into the fray in place of Tyler Walker.

FIRST HALF

The game got underway in torrid conditions at Macron Stadium, with the visitors putting Bolton under pressure from the off.

And they were rewarded inside five minutes as Lucas Piazon headed the ball across goal, with Targett finding the net from close range with Ben Alnwick unable to keep his header out.

It was almost two three minutes later as Rui Fonte dispossessed David Wheater who was attempting to deal with a ball deep into Bolton’s territory, but Alnwick came to the rescue for Wanderers with his foot keeping the forward’s effort out.

Wanderers were having to bide their time in terms of creating their own opportunities, with Fulham ruling in possession, although the Whites were keeping them confined to the middle third of the pitch for the most part.

With 18 minutes on the clock however, the Trotters tested Marcus Bettinelli for the first time, with the shot-stopper’s fingers tipping a goalbound Zach Clough effort over the crossbar with Macron Stadium already rising to its collective feet.

The chance certainly rejuvenated the home side too, with Sammy Ameobi proving himself a handful in the minutes that followed as Bolton went in search of a leveller.

A succession of Fulham injuries meanwhile saw the flow of the game stunted, with Wanderers unable to find their groove as the visitors dropped like flies.

Clough enjoyed another chance to pull Bolton back onto level terms shortly after the half hour mark as, following good work from Ameobi to pluck the ball out of the air and lay it off for the advancing forward, our No.40 was denied by a smart Bettinelli save from 12 yards.

Wanderers’ confidence was growing with each passing attack, and although the Fulham ‘keeper wasn’t having too much to deal with in terms of goalmouth action, the Cottagers were visibly panicking as they looked to clear the ball away from danger.

Following a period of Bolton pressure as the half drew to its conclusion, the visitors almost snatched a second on the stroke of half time, only for Beevers to block Ryan Sessegnon’s effort from a tight angle to ensure that it was just the one goal advantage for Fulham at the break.

SECOND HALF

With no changes for either side at the break, proceedings got back underway and it was Wanderers who looked liveliest early on.

The visitors didn’t waste much time however in making a double substitution, with Aleksandar Mitrovic and Aboubakar Kamara entering the fray as the Cottagers looked to put the game beyond Bolton.

And the latter almost made the perfect introduction, only to put his effort wide of the mark with just Alnwick to beat.

Wanderers were soon back on the attack though, with some neat build-up play seeing the home faithful respond in kind with their vocal backing.

Just before the hour mark, Phil Parkinson made his first changes of the game with Filipe Morais replacing Little and Adam Le Fondre taking the place of Clough.

And Le Fondre made his mark just a matter of minutes later, with his sublime angled half-volley from the edge of the box giving Bettinelli absolutely no chance as he drew Bolton level and sent the home faithful into raptures.

Wanderers were hungry for more, and with Fulham on the ropes, they poured forward in search of a second and saw Le Fondre come close again, with his shot deflecting off a Cottagers shirt and being palmed away by Bettinelli.

The Whites were knocking, and Josh Vela saw a golden opportunity – following good hold-up play by Le Fondre – fly narrowly over the crossbar from 20 yards.

They even had the ball in the back of the net with 18 minutes remaining, but the whistle had been long blown for a foul by Ameobi on the keeper before he poked an effort home.

Fulham weren't for lying down however, with Wheater required to dispossess Kamara inside the six yard box just as he was about to pull the trigger.

Wanderers continued to press themselves, Ameobi making inroads and shrugging off a couple of challenges before firing just wide of the upright with seven minutes left.

Mitrovic came close for Fulham meanwhile, seeing a snapshot from the edge of the area whisk past the post with Alnwick stranded.

They looked set to snatch the victory too with just two minutes left as Stefan Johansen mazed into the box, but his eventual effort was the wrong side of the near post to Bolton's relief.

And with four minutes indicated at the end of the 90, both teams were throwing everything forward as the clash swung to and fro.

But come full time, the spoils were shared at Macron Stadium.
