Preview: Stoke City v Bolton Wanderers

2 October 2018

Bolton Wanderers take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Tuesday evening in the Sky Bet Championship. With that being said, picked out five talking points ahead of this away league fixture.

1.  Injury News

After the victory against Derby County this past weekend, assistant manager Steve Parkin alluded to potentially having some “bumps and bruises” to have a look at on Monday.

When speaking to manager Phil Parkinson however, he told that his squad came through unscaved.

When asked how the squad is looking, the manager said: “Everybody is fine and nobody missed training this (Monday) morning.

“We have got everybody who was available from the weekend to select from.”

2.  Gary Rowett

After the end of the 2017/18 season, Rowett was appointed manager of Stoke City after leaving Derby County.

After a playing career spanning 16 years, Rowett had a brief stint in the media before joining Burton Albion’s coaching staff in 2009, before taking over the managerial reigns permanently in May 2012.

He led the Brewers to fourth in League Two in his first season, along with reaching a play-off semi-final.

Following on from his time in Burton, Rowett has had spells with Birmingham City and Derby County, before arriving at the Potters for the start of this season.

During this campaign, Stoke currently sit 17th in the Sky Bet Championship, with ten points on the board.

Playing at home, they have picked up seven points from a possible 15 available.

3. New faces in Stoke on Trent

After his appointment, new boss Rowett took to the transfer market and brought in some new blood to the bet365 Stadium.

Midfielders Tom Ince and James McClean were brought in on permanent deals from Huddersfield Town and West Bromwich Albion respectively, along with former Wanderers man Benik Afobe who signed from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Afobe spent time with the Whites in the 2012/13 season, scoring three times in 28 appearances for the club.

Currenty, the Dr Congo international is the top goal scorer for the Potters, with five goals in all competitions from 12 games.

Looking to the loan market and Everton defensive duo of Ashley Williams and Cuco Martina have been brought in until the end of the season

4. Game to remember

Wanderers’ fans, we take you back to the January 1997, playing at Stoke’s Victoria Ground in the First Division.

Colin Todd’s Bolton side travelled to Stoke to take on Lou Macari’s men as Wanderers were coming off the back off six games unbeaten.

Six soon went to seven as goals from Jamie Pollock and John McGinlay secured the points in a 2-1 win with a packed out away stand full of Whites’ fans.

This result was in the special 1996/97 season for Wanderers, as they won the First Division with 98 points on the board, with over 100 goals scored in the process.
