PREVIEW: Bolton Wanderers (A)

19 August 2016

Phil Parkinson’s Wanderers are up next for the Cod Army

Fleetwood Town will face off against Phil Parkinson’s Bolton Wanderers at Macron Stadium this weekend for the fourth EFL League One fixture of the season. Kick off at 3:00pm.



Coming from a midweek win, and their first win under Uwe Rosler, Fleetwood will be ready for their test against top of the league Bolton Wanderers


Rosler and the Cod Army will be looking forward to their test against top of the league, Bolton Wanderers this weekend after performing brilliantly against newly promoted side Oxford United in the week.


Town, not only managed to secure their first win of the season on Wednesday, they managed to keep a clean sheet as well, even though Rosler prefers attacking to defending. The game was swayed by two goals, the first coming from David Ball, the second coming from Ashley Hunter.


Ball’s 50th minute opener started off the side’s persuasive second half, after being held back for the first 45 minutes. Substitute Hunter doubled Town’s lead on the day to make the game 2-0 and secure the win bringing the side up to 8thplace.


In contrast, Parkinson’s Bolton showed dominance yet again against Bristol Rovers on Wednesday night after a 2-1 victory away from home. 


Goals from Josh Vela and Jay Spearing secured another three points for the Trotters and ensured that they would take the first spot on the league table after three games.




Fleetwood Town go into this weekend’s game with no injuries to their squad, other than Eggert Jonsson who may be carrying a knock.


The Whites, on the other hand, will be unable to use their skipper Darren Pratley due to him having an operation on his ankle after ligament damage.




Wallasley-born midfielder Jay Spearing has gotten off to a great start this season after already bagging two goals in just three games.


Spearing started his career at Liverpool, spending five years at the club, but only making 30 appearances for them. In his time there, he spent time on loan to Leicester City and Bolton Wanderers.


After an impressive loan spell at the Wanderers, they signed him up on a permanent deal in August 2013. Since then, the rock in midfield was awarded captaincy at the side in July 2014 until he went on loan in January 2015 to Blackburn Rovers.


Spearing has almost made 100 appearances for Bolton since permanently signing and has scored a total of seven goals.
