Preview: Millwall v Bolton Wanderers

23 November 2018

Bolton Wanderers take on Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 24 November. With that said, bwfc.co.uk have produced five things to take into this weekend's dclash.

1. Squad Update

During Thursday’s press conference in preview on the Millwall away clash, manager Phil Parkinson spoke to bwfc.co.uk and gave an update on the squad.

Parkinson said: “Stephen Ireland and Gary O'Neil are making good progress. Gaz is close to a return, whereas we're working hard with Stephen to get him ready and raring to go.”

“Gary is ahead of Stephen in terms of being ready, as Stephen hasn’t had any football at all and we have to be careful with him.

“We have to make sure that when Stephen is involved that he is ready.

“He has worked hard this week and understands that it is a big week for him next week.

“We have no fresh injury concerns, which is good going into three games in seven days.”

2. A Game to Remember Christmas 18.10.16

In November 2016, Wanderers visited The Den as Phil Parkinson’s men took all three points from Neil Harris’ Lions with goals coming from Sammy Ameobi and David Wheater.

3. The Boss

Lions boss Neil Harris has been in charge at The Den since 2015 on a permanent basis.

Nicknamed ‘Chopper’, Harris is a club legend at Millwall, playing 432 times for the club, scoring 138 goals and is still Millwall’s all-time leading goal scorer.

After a career spanning 17 years, Harris called time on his playing days in 2013 and immediately went back to The Den to get involved in the club’s academy setup.

Months later, Harris took over as caretaker manager with Scott Fitzgerald in December 2013 to January 2014.

After Neil Holloway’s departure from the club, Harris again took interim charge again before taking permanent charge at the start of the 2015/16 campaign.

4. New Faces at The Den

During the summer transfer window, Millwall dipped into the transfer market and brought in a number of new signings. Bwfc.co.uk will take you through a selection of them, starting with Murray Wallace.

The defender signed from Scunthorpe United for an undisclosed fee.

During his time in Scotland playing for Falkirk, Wallace won the Scottish Challenge Cup in 2011/12. He played regularly for Huddersfield Town and Scunthorpe United, whom he previously turned out for.

Jiri Skalak joined from Brighton & Hove Albion and has turned out 13 times for The Lions.

The Czech Republic international winger spent the entire of his career playing in his native country, as well as a short spell in Slovakia.

A name that will be familiar to Wanderers fans is tenacious midfielder Jem Karacan.

The Turkish youth international played for Bolton from March 2017 to June 2018 and aided Phil Parkinson’s men to promotion back into the Sky Bet Championship in 2016/17.

Tom Bradshaw and Ryan Leonard joined on loan until the end of December from Barnsley and Sheffield United respectively, prior to joining on a permanent basis in January.

Wales international forward Bradshaw plied his trade in League One with Shrewsbury Town and Walsall respectively.

The latter of those two teams is where Bradshaw rose to prominence, scoring 34 league goals in 70 games in his two seasons at Bescot Stadium.

Leonard spent the high majority of his professional career at Southend United, where he achieved promotion the Sky Bet League One in 2014/15 via the play-offs.

During his time with the Shrimpers, Leonard won Player of the Year on three separate occasions (2013/14, 2015,16, 2016/17).

Ferguson nearly provided Lee Gregory with a Lions winner two minutes from time, as he whipped in a deliver that was glances on by the frontman to narrowly miss the frame of the goal.
