🗞️ Preview: Oldham Athletic vs. Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers make the short trip to Boundary Park this evening as they look to stretch their five-game winning sequence when they take on Oldham Athletic (Kick Off 7pm).

Pre-Match Quotes: 

Ian Evatt: “I think they’re an attacking threat, they've got some good attacking players and they can score goals.

"They had a great result on Saturday, but we also have good attacking players and their biggest strength can also become their biggest weakness and vice-versa.

"We’d like to think that if teams open up and throw the game open against us that we’ve got the players to be able to take advantage of that. I think it’s going to be a good game and both teams will fancy it.

"We’re obviously in a good run of form but for us, I’ve said many times, it’s about what we do. If we can perform to the levels I think we’re capable of, then we have a great chance of winning every game but it’s down to us and we have to go there and do it.”


Harry Kewell: “Ian is trying to play the right way. I know people may say, ‘oh just get it up there’ and all that, but you can see in his last few results he’s started to put a run together.

“They’re coming here having won five games in a row and will be flying high.

“He’s in a strong position now and he’s going want to keep that consistency up there.

“We’ve had a little bit of inconsistency but we’re coming off a good win and I feel tomorrow night is going to be a good footballing game, an exciting game.”

With 16 points from their last six games, Bolton Wanderers currently sit at the summit of the Sky Bet League Two form table.

Shaun Miller’s injury-time winner against Barrow at the weekend gave Wanderers a deserved victory, their fifth successive win, to put them in the play-off places.

The Latics have won two and lost three from their previous six outings but beat Carlisle United 3-1 at Brunton Park at the weekend to give themselves some confidence heading into tonight’s clash.


Last time out:

Wanderers hosted Latics at the University of Bolton Stadium in October with the visitors running out 2-1 winners after Zak Dearnley’s 90th minute strike earned his team a smash and grab victory.

Nathan Delfouneso had earlier cancelled out Ben Garrity’s strike to even things up, but Dearnley had his say right at the death.
