🗞️ Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. Burton Albion

6 September 2021

Wanderers are in front of the Sky Sports television cameras this Monday evening, with a Sky Bet League One encounter against Burton Albion at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Ian Evatt’s men tasted defeat in their last league encounter at Cambridge United nine days ago, although the team responded with a victory in the Papa John’s Trophy against Port Vale last Tuesday.

Albion flew out of the blocks at the start of the current campaign with three league victories in a row – against Shrewsbury Town, Ipswich Town, and Sunderland. However, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s have picked up just a point from their last two league fixtures, with defeat at Cambridge United followed by a draw at home against Cheltenham Town.

 

Pre-match quotes: From the boss

Ian Evatt: “We have to concentrate on ourselves. We give the opposition respect and of course, do due diligence on them. They’ve had a very good start. We’ll give the lads an outline on what to expect but it’s more about what we do.”

 

Team News:

In his pre-match press conference, manager Ian Evatt has confirmed that Declan John will miss the clash with Burton Albion with illness, so Liam Gordon is likely to deputise at left-back.

Long-term absentees Xavier Amaechi and Amadou Bakayoko miss out, whilst the fixture likely comes too soon for Will Aimson to be involved.

Bizarrely, the referee scrubbed off the goal due to an apparent offside.

Minutes later, Liam Gordon passed the ball into the 18 yard box but the shot went over the cross bar.

Second Half

Quarter of an hour played and Wanderers picked up possession in the middle of the pitch, as Gethin Jones crossed the ball into the Burton box and Dapo Afolayan hit a thunderous effort on target but was denied by the post.

At the other end of the pitch, John Brayford was booked for a foul on Antoni Sarcevic which was crossed in but later resulted in the ball flying over the top of the bar.

Minutes later, the ball was in Burton possession but Eoin Doyle won the ball off the goalkeeper Ben Garrett and found Gethin Jones his effort was inches wide.

With a quarter of an hour left, Ricardo Almeida Santos was dispossessed by Jonny Smith who took a chance on goal however his shot went wide.

Soon after, Wanderers had possession and Jones crossed a floated ball over into the penalty area where Antoni Sarcevic headed the ball over the crossbar.

As the game came to a close, Burton captain John Brayford received his second yellow and was sent off after a foul on Afolayan.

With stoppage time on the horizon, Wanderers pressed hard and Gethin Jones crossed the ball over to substitute Elias Kachunga in the six yard box however the striker couldn’t connect and Burton received a goal kick.

In the latter stages, Burton won a corner which was headed wide. Wanderers took advantage and started play early.

Seconds later, Wanderers had a chance to grab a late winner but the ball went wide.

In the dying stages the Whites created another chance where Liam Gordon crossed the ball over into the box but was inches away from connecting to Lloyd Isgrove to win it for the Wanderers.
