Under-23s: Sheffield United preview

14 October 2017

Bolton Wanderers Under-23s travel to Sheffield United in their latest 2017/18 Professional Development League outing on Monday afternoon.

Kicking off at 2pm at Stocksbridge Park Steels' Look Local Stadium, the young Whites will be looking to bounce back after losing 3-1 in their last outing at home to Nottingham Forest.

That result left Bolton 11th in the northern section after six games played, having won just once so far this season.
 
In contrast, hosts Sheffield United sit third in the northern section but lost their last outing 3-0 away at Birmingham City. 
 
There will be goal updates via the club’s Twitter account @OfficialBWFC, with a match report available at www.bwfc.co.uk soon after.

Report: Sheffield United U23s 3-2 Bolton Wanderers U23s

17 October 2017

Wanderers’ Under-23s slipped to defeat in a five-goal thriller against their Sheffield United counterparts on Monday afternoon.

Early on in the clash, the Whites were quickest off the mark, with a long ball over the top finding Connor Hall who forced ‘keeper Jake Eastwood into a smart save, only for Jeff King to turn home the rebound.

Just a minute later however, the Blades restored parity with Jordan Hallam’s flick-on finding Tyler Smith whose deflected shot found the net at the near post.

And in the ninth minute, the home side took the lead in the clash as Oliver Greaves fired home when one-on-one with Jake Turner following a clever pass from Rhys Norrington-Davies.

Despite finding themselves behind, Bolton rallied and came close to a leveller after a clever flick from King, but he couldn’t stay compared as his shot flew over the bar from 18 yards.

They were then dealt a bitter blow before the break however as a throw down the line was picked up by Greaves who cut inside the area and curled the ball home via the underside of the crossbar.

After the interval meanwhile, the Trotters got themselves back in the game with a well-taken King free kick from the left hand side finding the top corner in the 57th minute.

And they were handed the perfect opportunity to pull themselves level ten minutes later as Cantrill committed a foul in the area, but Eastwood was United’s saviour with a superb save down to his right to keep out Harry Brockbank.

The home side had chances to extend their lead inside the closing stages meanwhile, but come full time the scoreline remained as such.

Bolton: Turner, Morris, Muscatt, Edwards, Brockbank, Regis, White, Perry, Hall, King, Earing

Subs: Aspinall, Politic, Lonsdale, Navarro, Broughton
