The Big Match Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs Wycombe

Ticket news and more...

11 January 2022

After a postponed fixture last month, the Chairboys will be looking to secure three points during a tough January schedule.

Bolton Wanderers vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 11th January 2022 (KO 8pm)
University of Bolton Stadium
Referee: Peter Wright

Saturday's dramatic draw with Sunderland at Adams Park will be a tough act to follow, as a 90+8' goal from Jacobson brought things level to 3-3 against the fellow promotion chasers. Gareth Ainsworth will be hoping that his side can show the same fight in what will be a different challenge at the University of Bolton Stadium.

The previous encounter between the two Wanderers at Adams Park in November saw the Chairboys secure all three points in a tighly-contested match - Sam Vokes scoring the decisive goal in the 72nd minute.

Ian Evatt's Bolton will be hoping to bounce back after three straight league defeats which saw them beaten by leaders Rotherham, Accrington Stanley and Fleetwood, while their most recent game came in the form of a 1-0 loss to Hartlepool in the Football League Trophy.

Match Reports

Report: Bolton 0-2 Wycombe

Hanlan and Grimmer on target.

11 January 2022

Brandon Hanlan and Jack Grimmer scored excellent goals in each half to secure an impressive 2-0 victory for the Blues at Bolton Wanderers.

Gareth Ainsworth's men clinched the double over the Trotters with an assured display, and the result never looked in doubt after Grimmer curled home a sumptuous first ever goal for the club to add to Hanlan's sublime solo run and finish in the first period.

Ainsworth made just one change to the side that started in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Sunderland three days earlier, recalling Ryan Tafazolli to the defence in place of Chris Forino, while David Wheeler and Adam Leathers stepped up to the bench and Adebayo Akinfenwa stayed home.

Amadou Bakayoko fired wide from 25 yards in Bolton's first effort of the game on five minutes, and then Dapo Afolayan's shot deflected dangerously and needed smart reflexes from David Stockdale to steer it to safety.

Wycombe had a series of impressive spells, none more so than when Garath McCleary was sent through one-on-one with the keeper, but was unable to convert as Joel Dixon rushed out to block his effort.

Stockdale came to the rescue again when Dion Charles latched onto a loose ball following a battle with Tafazolli, but couldn't steer it past Stockdale from inside the area, while Kieran Lee fired over from 20 yards and Charles had a low shot deflected wide as the chances began to add up for the hosts.

McCleary's corner just past the half-hour mark almost swung straight in, and the Blues probably should have made more an opportunity when Hanlan outmuscled Ricardo Santos down the left and broke through on goal, but he couldn't dig out a shot or pick out the unmarked Vokes and the chance broke down.

But moments later, he made amends with a goal from a similar starting point. He found plenty of space down the left to run at goal from just inside the Bolton half, and as MJ Williams backed off and invited the pressure, Hanlan reached the edge of the box and unleashed an unstoppable low effort into the far corner.

The goal quelled Bolton's pressure and the half appeared to be ending to a tame conclusion, but tensions rose amongst the home fans which began to spill onto the pitch, with a series of niggly battles and free-kicks culminating in 13 minutes of injury time, with Wycombe holding firm into the break, though McCleary and Tafazolli were both booked during that period.

The start of the second period had all the hallmarks of a game that could easily boil over; fast switches of play from end to end, firm tackles, and a building atmosphere in the stands.

So it needed another Wycombe goal to calm any nerves, and it came from perhaps the most unlikely of sources. Joel Dixon's clearance was poor and straight to Anthony Stewart, so when he fed Joe Jacobson, the defence was out of shape to deal with the long diagonal that reached Brandon Hanlan. The scorer of the first goal held the ball up and teed up Jack Grimmer, who bent a first-time shot with his left foot into the far corner.

Bolton responded well, carving open decent opportunities to break into promising areas, but the visiting defence held firm as the game reached the three-quarter mark.

Gareth Ainsworth freshened things up with the introduction of Curtis Thompson and Daryl Horgan as Joe Jacobson and Anis Mehmeti made way, shifting to a four-man defence.

There were no chances of note at either end as the clock struck 90, with Tjay De Barr replacing Brandon Hanlan just beforehand.

De Barr was almost teed up by Vokes for a third Wycombe goal, but two were enough to secure a second win in three games in 2022 ahead of the visit of Oxford to Adams Park on Saturday.

COVID protocol requirements
Following the Government’s recent ‘Plan B’ announcement regarding COVID-19, there are now mandatory COVID-19 certification requirements in place for all those attending matchdays at the University of Bolton Stadium beginning from this Saturdays fixture vs. Wycombe Wanderers.

The new measures will affect supporters entering the turnstiles, as well as those accessing the Bolton Whites Hotel and corporate hospitality areas for pre-match hospitality.

Bolton Wanderers encourages all supporters who will be attending upcoming matchdays to carefully read the below information, follow the protocols and plan in advance.

General admission into the stadium, the Bolton Whites Hotel and corporate hospitality areas will now require valid proof of your COVID-19 status. This applies to over 18s only (under 18s do not need to provide this). Acceptable proof can be in the form of any of the following: 

  • An NHS COVID Pass – either digitally via the app or a paper pass.
  • An approved international equivalent.
  • A valid text or email confirmation of a negative test result within the last 48 hours (we cannot accept actual lateral flow tests – you need to upload your results to gain your official pass). 

To acquire this proof, you will need to have: 

  • Two vaccination doses of an approved vaccine.
  • One vaccination of the single-dose Janssen vaccine.
  • Have a negative PCR or rapid lateral flow result within the last 48 hours.
  • Approved medical exemption.

Your COVID-19 status will be checked on arrival to the University of Bolton Stadium and the Bolton Whites Hotel and as a consequence, this will affect how quickly we are able to process fans into their seats.

Therefore, we are encouraging supporters to consider the following prior to making their way to the stadium:

  • Please do not travel to the game if you are feeling unwell or are displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Hotel hospitality is open from 12pm, stadium hospitality from 1pm and turnstiles will open from 1.30pm. We ask visitors to arrive as early as possible as we do expect access into the stadium to take a little longer than usual as we check COVID-19 passes.
  • We ask you download the NHS app and ensure you have access to your COVID-19 pass ahead of entering the stadium to avoid connectivity issues. As with matchday tickets, iPhone users can store their pass ‘offline’ in their Apple Wallet and Android users can store theirs in Google Pay.
  • Fans who wish to visit the Club Store and Ticket Office on matchday are reminded of the Bolton Central COVID-19 Policy.
  • We ask that you are understanding and patient with our staff members. The fixture against Wycombe Wanderers will be the first time we have implemented this new guidance and your support will be invaluable in ensuring admissions are processed speedily and effectively.

Unfortunately without proof of your COVID-19 status, you will not be granted access into the stadium.

Once through the turnstiles and into the concourses or any indoor setting, it is now a legal requirement for supporters to wear face coverings indoors. There will be hand sanitising stations throughout the concourses and hand washing facilities in the toilets. Once supporters are seated, mask wearing is no longer required.

As ever, we appreciate your understanding and support as we navigate the latest Government guidelines surrounding COVID-19. With these new measures, our primary aim is to ensure a safe and enjoyable matchday experience for all our supporters and we thank you for your ongoing understanding and patience.
