Bolton Wanderers' Under-23s will be looking to make it four victories on the spin when they travel to Millwall on Sunday afternoon.

Kicking off at 1pm at The Den, this game comes after the club’s youngsters’ victories over Bristol City (3-1), Colchester United (2-0) and Coventry City (2-1) – wins which see them top the pile in the northern section.

The Lions meanwhile have won one and lost two of their opening three fixtures, leaving them eighth in the southern section of the Professional Development League.

Report: Millwall U23 3-0 Bolton Wanderers U23

3 September 2018

Bolton Wanderers U23s suffered their first defeat of the 2018/19 Professional Development League season, losing 3-0 to Millwall U23s at The New Den.

The hosts took the lead inside four minutes, when Lewis White found space down the left side, before cutting in and firing a shot towards goal.

Bolton shot stopper James Aspinall parried away the first effort, however Lions midfielder Mason Saunders-Henry reacted first to the loose ball and poked the rebound home.

Wanderers had a chance shortly after through winger Dennis Politic, as his long range effort rattled the crossbar and evaded the Millwall goal.

The deficit doubled just after 14 minutes, when Shakeel Jones-Griffiths was adjudged to have fouled James Brown in the penalty area.

Saunders-Brown had his second from the penalty, as he dispatched the spot kick past Aspinall.

David Lee's side had a majority of the possession throughout the game, but seemed to lack a cutting edge in front of goal.

The lack of finishing touch was costly heading into the second half, as Jesse Debrah headed home from a Joe Wicks free-kick to seal the victory for Kevin Nugent's team.

Wanderers XI: Aspinall, Brockbank, Earing, Edwards, Zouma, Pritchard, Woods, Jones-Griffiths, Brown (Hartshorne 75), Politic, Navarro

Unused substitutes: Connell, Williams, Boon, Graham
