Bolton team news is not good for struggling Town


BOLTON Wanderers have no fresh injury concerns for today’s clash at Blundell Park as they continue their quest for promotion.

The Trotters make the journey to Cleethorpe­s this afternoon aiming for their third win in seven days, having strengthen­ed their position in League Two’s top three with victory over Salford City on Tuesday night.

Ian Evatt’s side sit four points clear of fourth-placed Morecambe with just five games remaining for them, and know that four wins between now and the end of the season will see them return to League One.

And they’ve been given a boost by the news that they have no new concerns after their midweek encounter, leaving long-term absentees Dennis Politic and Liam Edwards, as well as Antoni Sarcevic, as the only players currently out.

Asked about his treatment room, Evatt said: “Believe it or not, it’s clear as day and empty. No-one seems to be wanting to say if they’re carrying anything.

“I must say I thought that the game on Tuesday, the pitch was awful obviously so in terms of the quality and fluidity of the football, it probably wasn’t quite as it would be say here (Bolton), but I thought the speed, intensity, and the whole game by both teams was really impressive.

“It would have taken a fair bit out of our lads, no denying it, but when you’ve come out of that game with a victory, that boosts energy levels and confidence, so the lads are flying and they’re ready to go.”
