It’s crunch time at the Reebok. Our struggling, yet still beloved Bolton Wanderers are at the foot of the table, and no matter how many times Wanderers blogger Ken Anderson says otherwise, manager Phil Parkinson is a man under pressure.
However, all is not lost - Wanderers have two winnable home games coming up against Sheffield Wednesday and QPR, with the need to gain six points perhaps never being more vital.
Wanderers have decent records against both sides, when it comes to matches at the Reebok, and there is no doubt that our recent form has been much improved. Defeats against Bristol City and Aston Villa failed to tell the full story, and with that positive feeling behind us surely the time has come for us to turn those ‘almost’ moments into goals and, more importantly, league points.
The return to fitness of Josh Vela is a huge boost to the side. Whilst he struggled under Neil Lennon, he has been nothing short of brilliant under Parkinson’s guidance and his return to the side gives us more options and more grit where we need it most. This, along with Sammy Ameobi’s continued improved fitness again adds to Parky’s options and should mean we have the best chance possible of gaining maximum points in the double-header.
Let’s not forget, either, that both Wednesday and QPR are shite.
I would urge any fans who haven’t had chance to get themselves tickets for these games to do so today, and back the lads.
