Preview: Hull City v Bolton Wanderers

31 December 2018

Bolton Wanderers take on Hull City in the Sky Bet Championship on New Year's Day at the KCOM Stadium. With that said, bwfc.co.uk have picked out five talking points to take into tomorrow's game.

1. Pay on the Day

Wanderers supporters will be able to buy tickets from the Pitch Side Bar, which is situated near turnstiles 1–5, at the KCOM Stadium, on New Year’s Day. Tickets will be sold from 1pm and prices do not increase on the day.

Ticket Price (First 832 seats)

All Age Bands - £18

Ticket Price (Final 980 seats)

All Age Bands - £24

Babies & toddlers under the age of two years will not be admitted to the KCOM Stadium, as they are not deemed able to occupy a seat, which compromises the KCOM Stadium’s safety certificate.

Unaccompanied children under the age of 14 years will not be admitted to the KCOM Stadium.

2. Nigel Adkins

Entering his first full season as manager of the Yorkshire club, Adkins took over the reins in December 2017 following on from Leonid Slutsky.

In his playing career, Adkins made over 300 competitive appearances for a combination of Tranmere Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Bangor City.

With the latter, Adkins was appointed as player-manager in 1993 and went on to win back to back League of Wales titles with the Citizens – earning himself a place in Welsh Premier League Hall of Fame.

Departing from Nanporth in 1996, Adkins went on to join Scunthorpe United as a physiotherapist, after graduating from the University of Salford with a degree in physiotherapy.

In November 2006, he took over as manager of the Iron, sparking fan chants of “Who needs Mourinho? We’ve got our physio!”

After guiding Scunthorpe to two promotions from Sky Bet League One (2006/07 and 2008/09), Adkins joined Southampton in September 2010.

Back to back promotions for the Saints under him saw a return to the Premier League in 2012.

After leaving Southampton and stints as manager at Reading and Sheffield United, Adkins joined Hull City.

3. New Faces At The KCOM Stadium

With a new season comes new signings and Hull City are no exception, as bwfc.co.uk takes you through a selection of the Tigers' new arrivals.

American international Eric Lichaj joined the ranks from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.

The full back was a part of the United States squad that won the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, scoring his first competitive international goal against El Salvador in the competition.

A name familiar to Wanderers fans that is now in the ranks at Hull City is defender Reece Burke.

Joining the Tigers this past summer, Burke spent time at Wanderers in the 2017/18 season and played his part as Wanderers avoided relegation from the Sky Bet Championship.

Jordy de Wijs signed a permanent deal at the Tigers from PSV Eindhoven.

Spending the majority of his time there in the Jong PSV side (reserves), the 23-year-old joined the Yorkshire club on a three year contract, with an option of a fourth year.

In the loan market, Chelsea right-back Todd Kane joined tomorrow’s opponents on a season-long loan.

In his youth career at the Blues, the England Under-19 international won the Premier Reserve League (2010/11) and FA Youth Cup (2011/12), playing in the same side as the likes of Nathaniel Chalobah, Lucas Piazon and Jamal Blackman.

Match Reports

Report: Hull City 6-0 Bolton Wanderers

1 January 2019

Bolton Wanderers succumbed to a heavy defeat at the KCOM Stadium after Hull City netted six goals without reply.

Goals from Kamil Grosicki (2), Chris Martin, Jarrod Bowen, Evandro and Nouha Dicko ensured it was a day to forget on the east coast.

Team News

Phil Parkinson made just the one change from the side that drew against Stoke City at the weekend. Gary O’Neil, who scored the Boxing Day winner against Rotherham United, returned to the starting XI at the expense of on loan Joe Williams.

First Half

An acrobatic overhead kick from Clayton Donaldson after six minutes brought about the game’s first chance.

A ball into the box from O’Neil’s free-kick found the head of Mark Beevers who teed up the big frontman, but his effort went wide of David Marshall’s goal.

Possession was evenly split during the first 20 minutes with the Wanderers defence doing a grand job whenever Hull ventured into the box.

Ben Alnwick was pressed into action for the first time when he got down low to save a strike from Jarrod Bowen who broke into the box after some patient build up play.

A loose pass from Donaldson found its way to Evandro whose powerful drive was defelcted for a corner.

From the resulting kick, Chris Martin saw a close range effort rebound off a Wanderers player for another corner kick.

The hosts were stepping up the pressure and took the lead through Kami Grosicki who drilled the ball into the roof of the net from close range after Wanderers were unable to clear a throw-in from the right hand side.

Wanderers earned a free-kick after Kingsley brought down Donaldson who threatened to charge on goal.

From the resulting set-piece, taken by O’Neil, Beevers headed wide.

Moments later and Donaldson had a glorious chance to equalise for the visitors. Grounds ran to the by-line after receiving the ball from Ameobi on the left and put it in the path of the big striker who placed the ball wide with only Marshall to beat.

Second Half

Erhun Oztumer replaced Marc Wilson for the start of the second half as Wanderers aimed to find their way back into the game.

Hull hadn’t lost any of their attacking impetus and were themselves looking to increase their lead.

The dangerous Grosicki went close with a 25 yard free kick that just dipped over the cross bar after Vela was harshly penalised.

A lovely ball from Oztumer almost put O’Neil in with a chance but the midfielder wasn’t able to connect despite his valiant attempt.

The hosts doubled their advantage through Evandro who curled his right-footed effort past Alnwick after he burst into the box just after the hour mark.

Less than a minute later and two became three after Grosicki was allowed to run and guide his strike beyond Alnwick from 20 yards.

Parkinson immediately made another change by bringing on Craig Noone for Donaldson.

The hosts hit a fourth through Chris Martin who converted an easy chance from close range.

Hull were on fire and only the foot of Alnwick prevented Grosicki from getting his hat-trick.

A chance of a consolation goal for Wanderers was wasted when Noone’s 20 yard free kick went high over Marshall’s cross bar.

Meanwhile, at the other end, Alnwick’s cross bar prevented Martin getting his second and Hull’s fifth after he latched on to a superb pass from Grosicki. A goalmouth scramble ensued and the hands of Alnwick and the head of Beevers prevented another goal from being scored.

The fifth soon came after Vela lost possession deep in his own half with Bowen getting hold of the ball and powering past Alnwick who had no chance.

Bowen headed over from close range after another pinpoint cross from Grosicki reached him.

Substitute Nouha Dicko then headed home a sixth from close range to cap off a difficult afternoon for the Whites.

Full Time

Bolton Wanderers: Alnwick, Lowe, Grounds, Vela, Beevers, Wheater (C), Wilson (Oztumer HT), Donaldson (Noone 64), Doidge, Ameobi, (Olkowski 82) O’Neil

Subs Not Used: Matthews, Hobbs, Murphy, Magennis
