U23s: Ipswich Town preview

10 September 2018

Bolton Wanderers' Under-23s take on Ipswich Town this evening in the Professional Development League, looking to bounce back from a defeat to Millwall last weekend.

Kicking off at The University of Bolton Stadium at 7pm, David Lee's men have won three out of four games played in the Professional Development League this season.

The victories came over Bristol City, Colchester United and Coventry City before a loss to Millwall this previous weekend ended the Whites unbeaten run.

When looking to the opposition, the Tractor Boys sit second in the South side of the Professional Development League, with seven points.

Unbeaten in their last three, Gerard Nash's side posted an impressive 2-0 victory over Birmingham City in their last outing.

Details from the game will be publicised on the club’s Twitter account @OfficialBWFC, with a match report available on bwfc.co.uk afterwards.

Report: Wanderers U23s 0-0 Ipswich Town U23s

12 September 2018

Wanderers U23s were held to a 0-0 draw by Ipswich Town U23s at The University of Bolton Stadium on Mon evening.

TEAM NEWS

David Lee made three changes to the starting line-up that faced Millwall, with Ben Williams coming in for James Aspinall along with Marc Wilson and Joe Muscatt replacing Shakeel Jones-Griffiths and Eddie Brown.

FIRST HALF

Wanderers started the brighter of the two sides, with some close, quick passing between Marc Wilson and Dennis Politic opening up space for onrushing full back Joe Muscatt to break into.

However, he broke the line just a fraction quickly, as he was adjudged to be offside.

Ipswich had their first chance of the half on nine minutes, with El Mizouni breaking in from the left flank and taking a snapshot from a close angle.

But, Whites keeper Ben Williams was able to stand firm and palmed the ball firmly to safety.

Wanderers had their first set-piece chance of the night through Harry Brockbank. A Joe Pritchard out swinging header found the right-back, but his glancing header was just a fraction over the bar.

Brockbank came close again, as both he and Pritchard linked up with a floated delivery into the area finding the defender once again, but he could not direct his header towards the Ipswich Town goal.

Pritchard was in the thick of the attacking fray once more, as a Marcus Wood interception let Luca Navarro loose to run at the defence with pace.

He created an area of the pitch for Pritchard to loiter, as he lay the ball into his path.

The winger’s resulting effort, unfortunately for him, was deflected out of play well by a resilient Tractor Boys’ defence.

Ipswich nearly nipped in with a goal just on the stroke of half-time, as a misplaced headed pass from Yoan Zouma fell to the feet of Corey McKendry.

The midfielder provided a bit of trickery to make his way in the Wanderers area, but his driven effort was saved well by Ben Williams.

SECOND HALF

Ipswich started the brighter going into the second period, as El Mizouni broke in from the left side, but his eventual effort could not be directed goalward.

David Lee’s men immediately replied with the best chance of the match.

Dennis Politic came infield to find Jack Earing, whose firmly hit effort on target looked to be a certain goal, until defender Barry Cotter flung his body on the line to prevent the deadlock being broke.

Both sides had their chances in the second period but they none as close as Earing’s strike early in the half.

FULL TIME

Wanderers XI: Williams, Brockbank, Muscatt, Edwards (C), Zouma, Wilson (Jones-Griffiths 71), Earing, Wood (Connell 82), Navarro (Brown 76), Politic, Pritchard

Unused substitutes: Aspinall, Hartshorne
