Match Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. Ipswich Town

23 August 2019

Wanderers welcome Paul Lambert's Tractor Boys to the University of Bolton Stadium this weekend in a Sky Bet League One clash.

Since the beginning of the season, Ipswich have gone unbeaten in their first four games of the 2019/20 season. After a 1-0 victory on the road against Burton Albion on the opening day of the season, the Tractor Boys drew 1-1 with Sunderland at Portman Road. After this, a high scoring 2-2 draw away to Peterborough United followed, with the Suffolk based team coming into this clash off the back of a 2-1 home win against AFC Wimbledon.

Team News

Wanderers interim confirmed to bwfc.co.uk that the same 21-man squad is available from last weekend's fixture against Tranmere Rovers.

Long term issues with defender Josh Earl and forward Connor Hall leave them unavailable, with Luke Edwards and Dennis Politic still dealing with ankle and hip injuries respectfully.

Head to Head

Wanderers and Ipswich Town have faced each other on 45 occasions, with us coming out on top in 13 of those contents.

The two teams have drawn on 12 occasions and Tranmere have 20 victories to their name in clashes between the two sides.

Ipswich are somewhat of a bogey team for the Whites, with Jimmy Phillips' men last recording a victory back in 2005, a 3-1 away victory in F.A Cup.

Match Coverage:

As usual, match updates will be provided by the club’s official twitter account (@OfficialBWFC). We will keep you up to date with the action to ensure you don’t miss a kick – delivering a match report shortly after the final whistle with post-match reaction from the caretaker manager, Jimmy Phillips.

Live commentary will also be available by the iFollow BWFC channel (subscribe via the website), with the BBC Radio Manchester team providing the coverage.

Betting Odds

Ipswich Town are the favourites heading into this one. At the time of writing, the away side are fancied to take all three points by Sky Bet and are priced at 1/14.

Wanderers are priced at 22/1 to register a first victory of the 2019/20 campaign and you can get the draw at 8/1.

Man in the Middle:

KEVIN JOHNSON WILL BE THE REFEREE FORTODAY’S SKY BET LEAGUE ONE CLASH WITH IPSWICH TOWN. 

The Somerset based referee has been involved in the professional game for the past 11 years having overseen his first match back in August 2008, an exciting 6-3 clash between Oxford United and Eastbourne Borough, with the U’s coming out on top.

Johnson’s last league fixture was on August 13th – taking charge of Swansea City and Northampton Town in Sky Bet Championship, with the Swans taking that one 3-1. Despite coming into his twelfth year as an official, Johnson have never refereed a Bolton game.

Graeme Fyvie and Danny Gratton will act as his assistants, with Mark Cunliffe the fourth official for Saturday afternoon’s fixture.

Match Reports

Report: Bolton Wanderers vs. Ipswich Town

24 August 2019

Wanderers were defeated 5-0 by Ipswich Town this afternoon in a Sky Bet League One clash at the University of Bolton Stadium.

First Half

It wasn’t until the 16 minute mark that Ipswich had the first chance of the game, with Vincent-Young drilling a ball across the face of goal, with neither James Norwood nor Kayden Jackson able to find the finishing touch.

Moments later, Jackson watched onto a through ball and from eight yards, produced a fantastic reaction save from Remi Matthews, who tipped the ball onto the post.

Ipswich were awarded a penalty, after the referee judged a Wanderers defender to have handled the ball.

James Norwood stepped up to dispatch the spot kick down the middle of the goal.

Alan Judge nearly made it two for the Tractor Boys on 27 minutes, but his effort from a dangerously placed free-kick went wide of the mark.

Ipswich’s main man up top Norwood broke through the line of defence again soon after, but a fantastic low save with his feet from Matthews deterred Paul Lambert’s men from increasing their lead.

A mistake from Joe White at the back allowed Norwood again to bear down on the Bolton goal, but like minutes prior, Remi Matthews rushed out to smother the effort and pounce on the follow up.

Following on from some immense pressure from Gwion Edwards, Norwood yet again spurs another chance over the bar from eight yards.

Callum King-Harmes nearly produces the first chance for Wanderers, as he jinks past Myles Kenlock in the box and pulls it back for a waiting Ronan Darcy.

However, an Ipswich Town defender rushes back to deny a shot on goal.

Second Half

The visitors started out strong again, with Jackson stinging the gloves of Matthews from close range minutes into the second period.

Ipswich doubled their lead through Edwards after Norwood’s original effort was valiantly saved by Matthews, but he could do nothing as the Welshman followed up to slot into the empty goal.

Two became three for Ipswich on the hour mark, with Edwards’ original shot hit the post. Which was followed up on the line from Kayden Jackson to fire home.

Just past the hour and the Tractor Boys had their fourth as Jackson broke through the lines of Wanderers defence and coolly placed the ball under Matthew for his second.

With 18 minutes left, Norwood grabbed his second and the visitors fifth, as he calmly placed the ball past Matthews into the bottom right corner of the goal.

Second half substitute Emyr Huws forced a smart save out of Matthews with ten minutes to go, his shot from distance went low to the right.

Following this, no real chances occurred and the visitors took the three points back to Portman Road.

Full Time

Bolton Wanderers: Matthews, Lowe, Murphy, Weir, Brockbank, Darcy, Zouma, Graham (Lockett 45), King-Harmes, White (Boon 67), Brown-Sterling (Brown 85).

Unused substitutes: Alexander, Senior, Richards, Riley.
