Next up a trip to The Trotters of Bolton Wanderers where based on recent experience, we tend to not do very well.
Ian Evatt is still the manager of Bolton and although he isn’t a fan of us much (who is these days, even our own fans don’t like us much!), he has seemingly turned Bolton around into a promotion contender, possibly even automatic if they carry on their recent form!
They come into the game on Saturday 6th in League Two only 5 points off the top. Contrast that with us, we are 19th in League Two only 9 points off relegation to the National League!
In the January transfer window, The Trotters somehow managed to acquire the services of Marcus Maddison on loan (where’s the money coming from?!) and they also have plenty of
experience in the form of Matt Gilks, Eoin Doyle and Nathan Delfouneso to name just a few. Expect this to be a very tough game.
Bolton Wanderers’ last six games have thrown up the following results:
23rd Feb - Scunthorpe United (h) - Won 2-0
27th Feb - Barrow (h) - Won 1-0
2nd March - Oldham Athletic (a) - Won 2-0
6th March - Bradford City (a) - Drew 1-1
9th March - Cambridge United (h) - Won 2-1
13th March - Port Vale (a) - Won 1-0
So, only the 16 points out of a possible 18. Rubbish.
As always, the former connections I’ll leave to you, although the one that is blindingly obvious to me is Michael Ricketts who has gone from one time England star to being my uncle’s next door neighbour. What a fall from grace.
Saddlers wise let us know your team predictions and score predictions.
Osadebe - scored his first goal on Tuesday, has he done enough to stay in the team?
Liam Roberts - keep or drop?
Do you think we are better with James Clarke back in the side?
UP THE SADDLERS
- Bolton Wanderers Win
- Walsall Win
