    Bolton Match - Predictions, formations & Result

    I'm going for a difficult match against a team who have nowt to lose and with Keith Hill in charge who just loves us and knows how to beat us and gets good results out of us.

    I think that we'll play in the same way as we did on Saturday but wouldn't be surprised to see Mattock replacing Robertson with Robertson or Wood missing out.

    I expect a 3 - 1 scoreline with Morris getting at least a brace.

    I think Warne might surprise us by playing 4-4-2 with Smith and Ladapo up front.

    Mattock to return and Hastie in starting line up.

    Would normally go for 2-0 but I think the errors in defence haven’t been addressed so it’s still a win for me at 2-1

    M.O.M. - the moved dug out

    1-0 win.
    Game will be crap.
    Crowd will be quiet....apart from several at the back of the home dugout telling Warney he doesn’t know what he’s doing...😉

    Iversen
    Olosunde Icky Wood Robertson

    Morris, Wiles Barlaser Hastie

    Ladapo Smith

    I know what you mean. It's a strange one this.

    They've got a cobbled together team who have not yet played together. However, the game is a massive celebration for them after avoiding liquidation. They will be more up for it than us.

    We're definitely on a downer after throwing points (and cup ties) away in the last 3 games, at the death (96 minutes, 95 minutes and 88 minutes) and we haven't won at home yet.

    They've sold their allocation and the atmosphere will probably be like an away game. Our fans will be on the players backs very quickly if we don't start well.

    We haven't really gelled as a team yet, haven't got a settled formation and several players aren't living up to expectations.

    so ..... 4 - 0 to the Millers - all the goals from midfielders or defenders.

    I predict one last throw of the dice with the 4-3-3 formation, a disgustingly tedious game where we take an early lead but fail to take any more of the multiple chances afterwards, eventually grinding down to a halt midway through the 2nd half. After a couple of pointless substitutions from Warne, and a couple of inspired substitutions from Hill, Bolton - roared on by 2700 fans in party mode, grab an equaliser with 5 minutes of normal time left, then grab the winner deep, deep, deep into stoppage time.

    Not much optimism knocking about is there?

    There are often messages on this board about odd bets and bet combinations, so I wonder what the odds would be for one or more of the management team turning the wrong way when they come out of the tunnel, now that the dugouts have been moved?

    The last time a Bolton team beat the Millers on their own turf in the league was August 1966 – a month after England had lifted the World Cup.

    Can't get to match but can't for the life of me see Bolton , with this newly formed team, firing on any sort of cylinder, Keith Hill or not. I'm going for 4-0 Millers with a 4-3-3 formation and Ladapo to run riot.

    Don't forget the top 2 divisions have had a free week. No doubt Hilly will have had his team play behind closed doors matches with perhaps Burnley or Blackburn to sharpen them up. That said I think it will be a tough game but it really depends on if theirs been any lessons learned from the last 3 games. Hope we go 2 up front. The Score? Dunno.

    Well for one thing we can't really used the "team hasn't gelled yet" argument in this game, because we've certainly had more time than Bolton!

    I think we'll go 4-3-3, even though I'd prefer 4-4-2 but I think Warne will stick to his guns and keep pushing 3 up top.

    I think Bolton will be inspired by a variety of factors and give it a real good go, I just hope we don't try and counter this by defending deep and inviting them onto us in the hope of a break. It is a tactic that never has and never will work for us.

    If they come at us high tempo then we need to do the same, which will no doubt invite a high scoring game, we just have to be more effective on the day. We have the players to do it so lets hope they switch on and give us the shot in the arm we need.

    I predict 3-2 to us. They'll score first, then we'll wake up and push back and eventually go 3-1 up. Then we'll fall asleep and they'll put pressure on, pull one back in the 89th, then give us all high blood pressure as we hang on into injury time.
