Match Previews

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Stockport County v Bolton Wanderers

11 Hours ago

As Wanderers travel to Stockport County for their final pre-season outing on the road, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of Tuesday night's encounter.

1. Penultimate friendly

With the start of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season less than two weeks away, Wanderers travel to Stockport County on Tuesday night for their penultimate pre-season outing.

The Whites' last away trip of pre-season, the travelling Bolton fans will be eyeing up a successful midweek journey ahead of the visit of Premier League Stoke City to Macron Stadium on Saturday. 

2. Can Wanderers bounce back?

Defeat to Fleetwood Town on Saturday saw the Trotters suffer their first defeat of pre-season, having opened with three successive victories before last week's draw with AFC Fylde.

While pre-season friendlies are predominantly about match fitness, Wanderers will be eager to offer a reaction against Stockport as they look to return to winning ways and build momentum ahead of next month's big kick-off.

3. Rotation and formations

Phil Parkinson has rotated his pack throughout pre-season, trying out a number of formations while taking a look at the entirety of his first team squad including summer signings and youngsters keen to make a good impression.

Having enjoyed success with both 4-2-3-1, 3-5-2 and 4-1-2-1-2 systems last season, the Whites have taken to the field in all three systems at various points during pre-season so far.

And with the club's preparations drawing to a close ahead of the start of the Sky Bet Championship season, the Bolton manager will be watching his side's final two friendlies closer than ever as he looks to decide on a starting XI and system ahead of next month's 2017/18 league opener against Leeds United.

4. Pay on the day

Tickets for Tuesday night's game will be available to purchase on the Edgeley Park turnstiles on a cash-only basis with admission prices as follows:

Adults (18+): £10

Concessions: £7 

6-17s: £4

Under 6s: FREE With a paying adult

Meanwhile, there will be no parking at the ground but travelling fans can use nearby ‘Booth Street’ car park (SK3 9DF) for which a charge of £4 is payable.

5. 90 minutes

Having used his side's opening four friendlies to look at all members of his first team squad in 60-minute, 45-minute and 30-minute spells, Saturday's game against Fleetwood Town saw Phil Parkinson keep a number of senior players on the field for the full 90 minutes at Highbury.

With the start of the season drawing closer, this pattern could continue for the Trotters' final two friendlies as Wanderers continue to prepare their Sky Bet Championsip opener against Leeds United.

Match Reports

Report: Fleetwood Town 2-0 Bolton

22 July 2017

Wanderers succumbed to their first reverse of pre-season after Fleetwood Town recorded a 2-0 win at Highbury.

Goals in each half from Jordy Hiwula and Conor McAleny ensured the Cod Army marched home with a victory in basking hot sunshine on the Lancashire coast.

The starting XI contained Wanderers’ strongest line-up of the pre-season so far with Jem Karacan recovering from the knock he picked up against Fylde.

Wanderers got underway with a 3-5-2 formation but found themselves defending a corner within a minute of kicking off.

The 1,000-strong fans, some of whom were bedecked in the brand new purple away kit, were in fine voice from the onset.

The hosts should have taken the lead when a cross came in from the right hand side, but Jordy Hiwula prodded wide from close range whilst under pressure from Dorian Dervite.

During the opening exchanges, Fleetwood appeared to be the more threatening of the two sides.

Bobby Grant saw a right footed curler deflect for a corner after Wanderers lost possession in attack.

The opening goal came after 18 minutes thanks to a header from the unmarked Hiwula who polished off Amari’I Bell’s cross.

McAleny’s shot from distance went wide as the Cod Army looked to increase their lead and capitalise on their dominance.

The visitors’ first attempt came just after the half-hour mark after some clever play from Ameobi found Vela whose left-footer curled over Alex Cairns’ cross bar.

No changes were made to the Wanderers team as they came out for the second half.

Hiwula wasted a glorious chance to double his tally moments after the restart when he was put through by Bobby Grant. But the frontman fired wide with only Howard to beat.

McAleny was the next to try and increase the hosts’ lead only to see his low drive deflect for a corner.

Parkinson made his first change of the afternoon bringing on Adam Armstrong and Adam le Fondre for Ameobi and Buckley just after the hour.

The double change immediately saw Wanderers become more potent as an attacking force, winning three corners in quick succession.

But the visitors left themselves with a mountain to climb after McAleny’s deflected strike from distance curled in past Howard.

And their afternoon was summed up when Le Fondre put the ball over the bar after some neat work from Karacan in winning possession.
