Preview: Bolton Wanderers v Fleetwood Town

15 August 2023

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town face Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday 15 August at the Toughsheet Community Stadium in Sky Bet League One, and we have all you need to know ahead of the 7:45pm kick-off in our match preview.

Fixture: Bolton Wanderers v Fleetwood Town

Competition: Sky Bet League One

Date: Tuesday 15 August 2023

Kick-off: 7:45pm

Venue: Toughsheet Community Stadium, Burnden Way, Horwich, Bolton, BL6 6JW



Fleetwood Town make the short journey to Bolton on Tuesday night as they face Bolton Wanderers in Sky Bet League One action. Town are relishing the fact the fixture is just around the corner from last Saturday as head coach Scott Brown and his men believe it’s a perfect opportunity to make things right after a disappointing 2-0 loss to Cambridge United in Fleetwood’s first home game of the season.

After taking full responsibility for the defeat against Cambridge, Brown is hopeful that his lads don’t want to taste defeat again so soon, Cod Army fans will be hoping that Fleetwood can show the same grit and determination that they showed on the opening day of the season against Carlisle to get a result against a Bolton side - who are in fine-form which Town will be aware of and will hope to utilise all their bounce-back-ability to produce a better display than last time out.

With only one goal scored so far in the league season, the Cods will be looking to improve on their ruthlessness in the final third – players like Cian Hayes and Pheonix Patterson have looked bright in previous appearances on the flanks, however, the floodgates haven’t quite opened yet, but with proven goal scorers in the ranks in this division, Brown believes the ingredients are there for results to improve in attacking positions.



Bolton have started this campaign as perfectly as they could have hoped – with two games played, two games won – Wanderers have scored six goals in the process and are yet to concede as they sit top of the table – in and around the places where they aim to be at the end of the season.

Ian Evatt’s men are looking to go one better than last season’s campaign at the ToughSheet Community Stadium as they finished fifth but weren’t successful in the Play-Offs. Wanderers were however successful in another way as they cruised to silverware as they defeated Plymouth Argyle 4-0 in the Papa Johns Trophy final at Wembley – intentions this year will be to gain promotion out of Sky Bet League One.

With a 3-0 away win against Cheltenham Town last weekend, and a 3-0 win on the opening day against Lincoln - Tuesday’s hosts are no strangers to finding the back of the net – Dion Charles opened his account against Cheltenham with a brace; a striker who will be a handful for League One defenders this campaign, and someone Town’s backline will need to keep quiet to lay the foundations going forward.

“For us, we all take it on the chin we’ll all take responsibility. When it’s a good performance by all means we’ll all take credit for it, but when it’s a poor performance we’ve all got to accept responsibility.

“We need to learn from that and take full responsibility from today. You have to have that desire, and you have to have that work rate to make sure that you outrun your opponent and sometimes it's as simple as that.

“Sometimes You’ve got to look yourself in the mirror and realise what you’re doing wrong. That’s when you find out the men in the changing room. They’re a great bunch of lads, but today’s performance from start to finish was nowhere near the quality that we want.”

Report: Town defeated on the road at Bolton

15 August 2023

Sponsored by

A first half hat-trick from Victor Adeboyejo saw Town suffer a 3-1 defeat against Bolton Wanderers, in the Cod Army’s second away league game of the season.

Josh Earl headed in a late consolation goal in second half added time, one which ultimately wouldn’t be enough to secure any points on the night.

The home side got off to a flying start taking the lead after just 3 minutes, as a swift piece of attacking play saw Paris Maghoma slide the ball across the penalty area for Adeboyejo to arrive at the back post and finish off the resulting cross.

But the Cod Army responded excellently to going a goal down with a flurry of chances. First a fizzing cross from Shaun Rooney headed goalwards and had to be parried away by Bolton keeper Nathan Baxter, before Promise Omochere excellently spun his man in box and flashed a dangerous ball across the penalty area - that Bolton managed to scramble clear.

Moments later, Scott Robertson struck a free kick from range that forced Baxter into another save, before Rooney headed down another set piece across goal, but with no-one arriving to finish it off.

Despite Town’s pressure, Bolton doubled their advantage on 14 minutes after a searching ball over the Fleetwood back-line was excellently controlled and pulled across goal by Dacres-Cogley, with Adeboyejo arriving for a carbon copy finish of his first goal.

Brown’s men almost had one back on 27 minutes when some brilliant midfield recovery work from Robertson saw Jack Marriott play Josh Vela in towards goal, with Town’s captain forcing Baxter to make a great save from a tight angle.

But less than 10 minutes later, Adeboyejo completed his hat-trick. Dacres-Cogley was again the provider with some excellent trickery on the right-hand side, before teeing up the striker inside the penalty area to fire home his third of the evening.

Scott Brown introduced Danny Mayor and Ryan Graydon at half-time in place of Cian Hayes and Marriott, and on the hour mark substitute Mayor forced Baxter into a low save tipping the ball round his post. The ball somehow stayed out from the resulting corner when the home side were able to scramble it off the line.

Moments later, striker Dion Charles was sent off for the Wanderers following a second yellow card, reducing the home side to ten men. Bolton manager Ian Evatt was also shown red shortly after.

The Cod Army made a further number of changes, introducing Phoenix Patterson, Maleace Asamoah and Junior Quitirna, and the Cods were able to reduce to deficit by one with Earl netting in a header from a corner in added time - but one that would only serve as a consolation goal.

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Johnston, Robertson (Patterson 74’) Vela, Broom (Asamoah 79’) Marriott (Graydon 46’) Omochere (Quitirna 79’), Hayes (Mayor 46’), Nsiala, Rooney, Earl 

Subs not used: McMullan (GK), Teale 

Bolton Wanderers: Baxter (GK), Jones, Iredale, Thomason (Sheehan 46’) Santos, Charles, Dacres-Cogley, Adeboyej (Nlundulu 69’) Maghoma (Mendes Gomes 69’), Dempsey (Morley 59’) Williams (Ashworth 69’)

Subs not used: Forrester, Jerome
