Bolton Wanderers Aim to End Sheffield Wednesday’s Unbeaten Record
Promotion Hopes for Wanderers
Bolton Wanderers will aim to end Sheffield Wednesday’s unbeaten 22-match run in League One. Wanderers still have promotion hopes of their own via the play-offs and sit sixth in the table going into their last league game before the Easter weekend.
Megson Tribute Planned
Wednesday will pay tribute to former captain and club legend Don Megson – father of former Wanderers’ manager Gary – ahead of tonight’s game.
Evatt’s Thoughts on the Game
Ian Evatt, the Bolton Wanderers manager, said that the team’s underdog status means that they have nothing to lose. He hopes that his team can win the first goal and capitalise on the few and far between moments. He also described the playing style of both sides and looks forward to a good game. The atmosphere will be electric, and he hopes to capture this energy for the team.
The Wanderers duo of MJ Willims and George Johnston are working their way back to full fitness. Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Jack Iredale remain the Whites’ only long-term absentees. Wednesday will be missing some players due to injury, suspension and other reasons.
Wanderers have not won in their last four games with one draw and two losses in the last three games. They are presently occupying the final play-off berth with six wins in their last 10 league games. Wednesday is unbeaten in their last 22 league games and has won their last five games, including three successive 1-0 wins.
Wanderers will be having top-six meetings with Ipswich and Morecambe in March, followed by a match with Portsmouth. Bolton will return to League One action under the guidance of Ian Evatt for the 150th time.
