Evatt: We'll Be Ready To Go Again

Boss has forward options as Whites aim to follow on Family Day

17 April 2022

Ian Evatt is ready to tweak a winning formula as his side aims to make it back-to-back victories over the Easter weekend.

Wanderers made the perfect start with a 2-1 win at Doncaster Rovers on Friday.

And with the visit of Accrington Stanley coming just three days later on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon, Evatt will look to freshen things up where he can.

“I had already picked the two teams before the game to be honest,” said the Wanderers’ boss, whose side made it five games without defeat and took all three points at Doncaster thanks to Kieran Sadlier’s superb winner.

“It’s just the way it has to be. It’s a really challenging time for everyone.

“People are physically drained and tired and with the injuries we’ve got everyone is having to keep stepping up.

“Physically we had to put a lot into Friday to match their work ethic. I was pleased with that and we go again on Monday.

“We’ll be ready. We’re excited to play at home. Our support has been fantastic and will be again.

“It’s another excellent initiative from Sharon, the board and the club to have a Family Day and reduced ticket prices and we want to make it a good day.”

Tickets for Monday’s visit of Stanley (KO 3pm) are priced at just £10 for adults and £5 for concessions as Wanderers stage their second Family Day of the season to help and encourage more fans – young and old – to enjoy watching the Whites.

Evatt’s men continue to serve up exciting football in their quest to try and secure a top-10 finish.

And the Wanderers’ boss does have the options of rotating his forward line to keep the Whites’ cutting edge at its sharpest.

Amadou Bakayoko scored his 12th goal of the season at Doncaster – alongside the outstanding Jon Dadi Bodvarsson – where top scorer Dapo Afolayan came on to set up Sadlier’s clincher.

Elias Kachunga also came off the bench, along with former Stanley striker Dion Charles, to leave Evatt with plenty of choices as Wanderers look to avenge a 1-0 defeat at Accrington at the height of their mid-winter struggles and try and extend their unbeaten run to the end of the campaign.

“The one place we have got the luxury of making changes is the forward areas, which hasn’t always been the case,” added Evatt.

“It’s three to go – three big games.

“We have evolved since then (December’s defeat). At the time we were absolutely crippled by injuries.

“Hopefully we will give a good account of ourselves and go on to get the three points.”
