Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Huddersfield Town

5 January 2018

As Wanderers take a break from league action to host Huddersfield Town in the Emirates FA Cup, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of Saturday's third round tie at Macron Stadium.

1) Recent form

Bolton Wanderers will be looking to maintain their recent form when they host Huddersfield Town in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday.

The Whites come into Saturday's tie having won three of their last four league outings, and will be looking to put in another positive showing against Premier League opposition.

2) The goal machine

Gary Madine netted his ninth goal of the season in the Trotters' last outing against Hull City, taking his recent tally to five goals from his last his seven matches.

Will the goal machine be able to extend his recent run when Wanderers face the Terriers?

3) Team selection

Phil Parkinson will be forced to make changes for Saturday's game with Darren Pratley (leg) and Karl Henry (hamstring) both ruled out after picking up injuries against Hull City.

Late decisions will be made on Andrew Taylor and Josh Vela after the duo returned to training towards the end of the week, while Antonee Robinson could feature after returning to the club on loan on Friday. 

Loanees Adam Armstrong, Josh Cullen and Reece Burke have all returned to their parent clubs, though the Whites remain in talks with West Ham United.

The likes of Stephen Darby, Dorian Dervite, Mark Howard, Jem Karacan, Adam Le Fondre, Filipe Morais, Craig Noone, Derik Osede and Aaron Wilbraham could come into contention, while youngsters like Connor Hall and Jeff King will also be hoping for opportunities to impress.

4) Gaffer's got form

Phil Parkinson developed quite the taste for a cup run in the past during his time with Bradford City.
 
He was a Capital One Cup finalist with the Bantams in 2013 having knocked out Premier League trio Arsenal, Aston Villa and Wigan Athletic on their way to Wembley.
 
Parkinson also led Bradford to the FA Cup quarter-finals in 2015, memorably recovering from 2-0 down to beat eventual Premier League champions Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge before seeing off top-flight Sunderland.
 
Will the gaffer be able to oversee another cup run and prolong his side's stint in the tournament?
 
5) Cash turnstiles

Supporters will be able to pay on the turnstiles for Saturday's game against Huddersfield.

Kicking off at 3pm at Macron Stadium, admission on the day of the game can be found at the following turnstiles:

Match Reports

Report: Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Hull City

1 January 2018

Gary Madine's ninth goal of the campaign was enough for Wanderers to pick up all three points against Hull City and start 2018 with a bang on New Year's Day.

The big striker hit the decisive effort with 20 minutes on the clock, with his beautifully crafted free-kick leaving Allan McGregor with no hope.

And come full time, his goal was the difference as Bolton ran out winners.

TEAM NEWS

Phil Parkinson made four changes from the team that beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane at the weekend as Bolton Wanderers looked to build on that sterling performance in front of their own fans at Macron Stadium.

Sammy Ameobi returned to the starting XI after recovering from a knee injury that prevented his inclusion against the Blades, while Will Buckley, Josh Vela and Mark Little came back into the fore at the expense of David Wheater, Josh Cullen, Filipe Morais and Adam Le Fondre, who were all named among the substitutes. 

FIRST HALF

The opening exchanges offered very little in terms of attacking intent with both defences firmly on top. The tempo wasn’t helped by the swirling wind and rain which had engulfed Macron Stadium.

Wanderers suffered an early blow after they lost Karl Henry in the 13th minute to what appeared to be a leg injury. Josh Cullen was the like for like replacement.

The hosts had their first real chance shortly afterwards after Hull failed to clear a free-kick into their box. Gary Madine, the hero of Bramall lane, produced some lovely control just outside the penalty box to fashion a chance, but his shot cannoned off a defender before going for a corner.

Madine then sent the Macron into raptures of delight when his rasping 25-yard free-kick flew beyond Allan McGregor with marvellous majesty.

Not renowned for his shooting prowess from set-pieces, the big striker looked to be a mere distraction for the Hull defence as the left-footed splendour of Ameobi appeared to be shaping up to shoot.

However, Madine’s effort couldn’t have been struck any sweeter as Wanderers took the lead in serene style.

Ben Alnwick was pressed into making his first save on the half hour mark after a lovely passage of play from Hull culminated in the Wanderers keeper making the vital block at the expense of a corner off a Jarrod Bowen effort.

Wanderers again had to make an enforced change immediately afterwards with captain Darren Pratley limping off and Morais coming on for the midfielder.

The two unfortunate changes stymied the rhythm Wanderers had orchestrated for themselves and Alnwick, on his 31st birthday, again had to make another important save diving to his right – to keep out Markus Henriksen’s 25 yard free kick.

Ameobi looked to respond and his run ended with a low, powerfully struck drive, which went wide of McGregor’s left hand post.

Morais spurned a good opportunity to double Wanderers’ lead just before the break after he latched on to Madine’s flick after Jon Toral slipped. The wideman was unable to keep his volley on target.

SECOND HALF

Bowen should have restored parity moments after the restart when Nouha Dicko’s low centre from the right flank flashed across goal. The Tigers' forward inexplicably put the shot wide with the goal at his mercy.

Ameobi had another powerful shot but again it went wide as the poor weather conditions showed no sign of letting up.

Wanderers seemed determined to find that second though and Little was unlucky to see a volley cleared away.

Morais then had a taste of the action when his header off a Vela centre was cleared for a corner.

The hosts were certainly stepping up after a sluggish start to the second period, but were susceptible on the counter.

Alnwick, not for the first time, came to Wanderers’ rescue with a fine block to keep out Henriksen after the Tigers countered at breakneck speed.

Hull made a double attacking substitution just after the hour mark with Fraizer Campbell and Seb Larsson coming for Dicko and Stewart.

Mark Beevers produced a crucial tackle to thwart Bowen but despite Hull’s chances, Wanderers looked comfortable at dealing with anything they threw at them.

Nigel Adkins made his final change of the afternoon with Evandro coming on for Henriksen with ten minutes remaining.

A snapshot from Morais went just over the bar as Wanderers buoyed by the 14,216 crowd endeavoured to get a decisive second.

Beevers once again got his body in the way of a Bowen shot as the intensity was heating up at both ends.

Le Fondre came on for Buckley for the final five minutes to give the hosts a different dimension.

And although the visitors pushed for a leveller inside the final stages of the clash, a resolute Bolton backline rebuffed their advances to hold out for their second victory in three days.
