Bolton Wanderers v Forest Green Rovers - Preview

Shaun Miller poised to make league bow for new-look Bolton

Bolton striker Shaun Miller should make his league debut for the club in the season opener against Forest Green Rovers.

The 32-year-old former Coventry, Sheffield United and Carlisle forward, one of 17 new players signed by new manager Ian Evatt, scored his first goal for the Trotters in the midweek EFL Trophy defeat by Crewe.

Evatt confirmed he had some concerns over “three or four that have picked up knocks and niggles” ahead of the Sky Bet League Two fixture, but would not reveal which players.

Wanderers came down from League One last season, which was beset by financial problems and saw manager Keith Hill leave at the end of his contract.

Forest Green head coach Mark Cooper will be looking for a response after two defeats in the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy.

Forwards Matt Stevens and Shawn McCoulsky could be in contention having both started in the midweek loss at Exeter.

Veteran midfielder Scott Wagstaff came through 45 minutes of the EFL Trophy tie, so will be assessed as he works his way back to full match fitness.

Defender Liam Kitching should be involved again after getting just under an hour under his belt.

Midfielder Elliott Whitehouse, who signed on a free transfer in August, continues to serve out a six-game suspension for racially abusing a Northampton player last season while at Grimsby.

    Bolton Wanderers 0 - 1 Forest Green Rovers - Match Report

    Bolton beaten again as Carl Winchester gives Forest Green victory

    Carl Winchester’s second-half strike fired Forest Green to a 1-0 Sky Bet League Two victory at Bolton, who are yet to win under new boss Ian Evatt.

    After a drab opening period skipper Winchester netted from 30 yards – his low right-foot shot deflecting in off Billy Crellin’s left-hand post.

    Both teams kicked off this first competitive fixture between the pair having lost their opening matches in the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy.

    But Wanderers, playing in the game’s fourth tier for the first time in 32 years, rarely hinted at avoiding third successive loss.

    Eoin Doyle, last season’s top scorer at this level with Swindon Town, wasted an early chance as both sides laboured for quality in the first half.

    However, five minutes after the re-start, following the award of a free-kick, Winchester rifled home after Bolton failed to clear their lines.

    Luke McGee denied substitute Ali Crawford after 73 minutes and Liam Gordon went close in injury time, but the visitors won with plenty to spare.
