A new away ground and sold out travelling support - key points ahead of Bolton's game at AFC Wimbledon
As Phil Parkinson and his Bolton Wanderers team prepare for their first Sky Bet League One outing on the road, bwfc.co.uk highlights five key talking points ahead of the weekend's trip to AFC Wimbledon.
New ground, new opposition
Saturday’s game against AFC Wimbledon will not only mark Wanderers’ first ever visit to The Cherry Red Records Stadium, but also the first ever meeting between the two sides. Whatever the outcome, it is sure to be a day to remember.
Sold out away support
As a result, Whites fans swooped to secure their tickets for this weekend’s game as they sold out before even going on open sale. Following the travelling Bolton faithful’s fantastic support in midweek, expect more of the same as over 800 Trotters make the journey to the capital!
First league away day
After travelling to Blackpool in midweek, the trip to AFC Wimbledon marks Wanderers’ first away league game of the season. Without a win on the their travels last year, the travelling Whites will be desperate to see Bolton’s away day blues come to an end at the first time of asking against the newly-promoted side.
With the majority of the Trotters’ tickets for the game in the standing section, it is set to be a special atmosphere on Saturday!
Strikers off the mark
Although they were knocked out of the EFL Cup in midweek, both Jamie Proctor and Kaiyne Woolery managed to net their first goals of the season. And while Wanderers were guilty of missing chances at Bloomfield Road, the duo getting off the mark early bodes well with for the rest of the campaign. And with Max Clayton and Zach Clough also nearing first team returns, the Whites will soon have plenty of options in attack as Phil Parkinson continues to run the rule over his squad.
