Match preview: Bolton v Wednesday

8 April 2022

Bolton Wanderers v Wednesday
Saturday 9 April
Sky Bet League One
University of Bolton Stadium

Wednesday have been in stunning form since the turn of the year and the positive run of results has seen us climb into the play-off positions.

The lion’s share of our points have come from Hillsborough and manager Darren Moore is looking for his side to keep up the momentum on the road this weekend.


Looking to strengthen our place in the top six, the Owls head to Bolton who occupy 11th spot in League One.

Saturday’s hosts have also shown plenty of promise in 2022.

Ian Evatt’s side went on a superb run of eight wins from 10 games between mid-January and late February and threatened to break into the play-off picture themselves.

But a mixed bag of form since then has seen Wanderers slip down the table and well away from the top six spots.

Earlier this season, the Owls posted three points against Bolton with Lee Gregory’s second half strike enough to seal the points.


Wednesday: The Owls are in good shape ahead of Saturday’s fixture.

Jordan Storey will return to the squad after missing out last weekend.


Dennis Adeniran, Lewis Gibson and Liam Palmer are back in training and making excellent progress.

Sylla Sow will not travel after picking up a minor knock at Middlewood Road.

Bolton: Ex-Owl Kieran Lee (heel) will miss the clash with Wednesday.

Manager Ian Evatt said: "Kieran Lee is still missing. He has still got some soreness in the heel. We have got some illness in the camp and one or two others have knocks and niggles that we are having to manage as well.”

Defender Ricardo Santos, midfielder Kyle Dempsey and forward Dapo Afolayan will be sidelined after picking up hamstring injuries in the midweek draw with Portsmouth.


Former Wednesday man Elias Kachunga is in contention to feature.
