🗞️Preview: Scunthorpe United vs. Bolton Wanderers

24 November 2020

Wanderers are once again on their travels this evening when they visit Scunthorpe United where they will be searching for a fourth successive victory in all competitions.

Pre-Match Quotes: 

Ian Evatt: “Scunthorpe have some good players. I know Neil Cox well and it should be a competitive game with both teams hitting a bit of form. Hopefully we’ll go there and get the result. We’re not getting carried away. We’re just focused on the next game and focused on winning at Scunthorpe. If we do that the rest will take care of itself. We’ve got to go there and be hard to beat first and foremost again and then hopefully our quality and technique will take over and we can win the game.”

Neil Cox: "I’m over the moon with seven points in the space of a week. The boys had a right good go. They were tired but they stuck in there and to be unbeaten in three is brilliant. Kev (van Veen) started the game but came off with not a hamstring, but more of a nerve situation. The new substitutes rule gave us the option to change it quickly and not risk him. So, we’ll see how he is. We’ve got a lot of tired bodies and we’ve got to wrap them up and see who is raring to go on Tuesday night."

Match Reports

Report: Scunthorpe United 0-1 Bolton Wanderers

24 November 2020

​​Peter Kioso’s second goal of the season gave Bolton Wanderers their fourth win on the trot as they beat Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

The on loan defender put the finishing touches to a well worked goal in the second half to send Wanderers to 13th spot in the division. 
Ian Evatt named an unchanged starting XI for the third successive league game as Bolton Wanderers arrived at Glanford Park looking for a their fourth successive win in all competitions.
Wanderers got off to a bright start and won a corner inside two minutes after Kioso’s cross was charged down by an Iron defender.
Delaney ran to the near post to reach Kioso’s set-piece but wasn't able to glance the ball into the box.
Doyle ran onto Crawford’s searching ball and got himself into a good shooting position but could only fire over Howard’s bar as Wanderers began to crank up the pressure on United. 
The visitors were showing great attacking intent from the get-go and Jones was unlucky not to get on the end of Kioso’s cross at the far post following a fine display of passing in midfield.
​Mark Howard made an impressive save diving down low to his left hand side to keep out a Sarcevic volley after the Wanderers captain latched onto a Kioso throw.
The former Wanderers keeper got down well once again to keep out a curling effort from Delfouneso after the striker made space for himself when he received Jones’ throw-in.
​Ali Crawford fired over from distance after some good pressing play by Delfouneso carved open an opportunity to shoot for the Scot.
Abo Eisa’s 30-yard free kick failed to trouble Gilks as the hosts made a rare venture into the danger area.
The hosts were enjoying their best spell of the game and were unlucky not to take the lead when Emmanuel Onariase headed wide at the far post from a corner. It was a huge let off for Wanderers.
Iron spurned another chance from a corner when Alfie Beestin fired a loose ball over the bar from close range.
Wanderers started the second half strongly and earned two dangerous free-kicks in quick succession. On both occasions Baptiste went close with headers from Crawford set pieces.
Kioso broke the deadlock for his second goal of the campaign with an accomplished low finish after some stunning play by Delfouneso over on the right hand side created the space for the wing back to shoot past Howard. The striker beat two men with some fancy footwork before dragging the ball back for his team mate to put his side in front.
Gilks made an important save at the other end after the hosts carved open a chance out of nothing.
Howard made a vital save to keep out a Tutte pile driver on 69 minutes as Wanderers looked to extend their lead. 
​Lewis Spence fired wide from distance after Iron made their way in to the final third.
Evatt made a double substitution with Isgrove and Miller coming on for Crawford and Delfouneso with 15 minutes of the game remaining.
Gilks showed tremendous agility to keep out a cross from McAtee which drifted goalwards and United couldn't breach the Wanderers goal with Ian Evatt's side collecting a deserved three points on the road.
