The Big Preview: Bolton Wanderers (A)

Local Derby In Front of the Cameras

7 October 2019

An eagerly anticipated fixture in front of the Sky Sports cameras awaits tonight, as Blackpool face Bolton Wanderers at the University of Bolton Stadium.

This will be the first league meeting the two sides since April 2015 and sees both clubs under new ownership. 

Blackpool head into the game on the back of seven points from a possible nine in the division, while Bolton, who started the season on minus 12 points, go in search of their first league victory of the season. 

The hosts have recruited heavily since starting the campaign with youth team players and will prove a much sterner test under the management of Keith Hill. The Trotters have drawn two of their last three league games and lost out narrowly to Portsmouth last time out. 

Team News: 

The Seasiders continue to monitor several injury concerns ahead of the match, with Nathan Delfouneso, Sullay Kaikai and Joe Nuttall being assessed. Jordan Thompson misses out due to international commitments with Northern Ireland. 

Bolton could hand a debut to former Pool loan player Joe Dodoo, who completed a move to the club last week. 

The Manager's View: 

The Referee: 

John Busby will oversee proceedings at the University of Bolton Stadium, having officiated 11 games so far this season. 

His last Blackpool fixture was an away game at Barnsley back in April. 


Our full ticket allocation for this match has now been sold. No tickets will be available to purchase on the night.

Derby Game Ends In Stalemate

7 October 2019

Blackpool were left to settle for a point on a frustrating night at the University of Bolton Stadium, as the Seasiders played out a stalemate with Bolton Wanderers.

In a game of very few clear-cut chances, Pool’s best opportunity fell to Liam Feeney in the opening 20 minutes of the encounter, with the winger striking the underside of the bar.

Manager Simon Grayson made just the one change to his starting line-up, with Jordan Thompson absent due to international commitments. Callum Guy was the man to take his place in the middle of the park.

The opening stages of the game lacked any real goal-mouth action, though Bolton’s Jack Hobbs did register a header on target for the hosts.

Liam Feeney almost changed that when he struck the bar from a tight angle, having latched onto a wayward effort from Callum Guy.

Moments later, Matty Virtue tried to blast one into the net from just inside the area, only for Hobbs to slide in with a crucial block tackle.

Just as Blackpool were starting to get a foothold on the game, Daryl Murphy came close to giving Bolton the lead. Luckily Jak Alnwick was well positioned to keep out his low-drilled strike.

With half-time fast approaching, Alnwick was then called upon again, this time to tip a free-kick from Ali Crawford round the post.

Half-Time: Bolton Wanderers 0 Blackpool 0

Space started to open up for Blackpool to counter after the interval, however a few initial opportunities went without an end product.

Bolton then introduced former Pool striker Joe Dodoo off the bench, who nodded wide just past the hour mark.

Dodoo, clearly out to make an impact on his debut, had two further efforts minutes later, with one of them being drilled across goal.

Jay Spearing and Armand Gnanduillet both fired wide as Blackpool pushed to break the deadlock, while a great bit of defending from Curtis Tilt prevented Daryl Murphy from getting in at the near post for Bolton.

Though both sides pushed to try and get something more from the game, the final moments came to nothing, leaving the teams to settle for a point apiece.

Full-Time: Bolton Wanderers 0 Blackpool 0

Team: Alnwick, Turton, Heneghan, Tilt, Husband, Spearing, Guy, Virtue, Feeney, Scannell (Hardie 67), Gnanduillet

Not Used: Mafoumbi, Bushiri, Edwards, Nottingham, Macdonald, Bange
