It’s the last game of the season, and possibly the last set of tickets we’re going to be giving away until next season. All credit goes to 188BET once again for providing these tickets.
Going into the game this weekend, the Whites have it all to play for – a must win game to seal the deal, to ensure neither Leicester or Nottingham Forest pip us to the post for the last sought Playoff place.
This time around, we only have 1 pair of tickets to giveaway. These are Match Tickets, and as always – entering the giveaway couldn’t be simpler – you’re required to complete the 2 steps below to register your entry!
West Brom defender Craig Dawson has now completed his loan move at Bolton and has returned to his parent club accordingly. The young Team GB star has been nothing short of sensational in his 16 games at the Wanderers, scoring 4 goals in the process. On the defensive side of the field, the team has gone from being fairly leaky to on average conceding a single goal per game in Dawson’s time at the club.
His aerial ability in defence has been unrivalled in the Championship, the defender seeming unbeatable at both ends. What a great player he has been for the club, a massive thanks for his contribution and if Bolton secure a return to The Premier league surely he will be the first player on the wanted list. It’s only a matter of time before big things happen for the defender, and if a permanent move doesn’t materialise, at least he did at one stage, fans at The Reebok will be honoured by that fact.
In a league riddled with excitement, drama and inconsistency, the Championship season of 2012/2013 is one to be fondly remembered by both sides competing this tie. For example, 16 points separate Manchester United and Manchester City in 1st to 2nd place in the Premier League, whereas the same gap in the Championship divides 23rd place Barnsley with 5th place Crystal Palace.
That slender gap and close competition between the majority of England’s second tier has been fully taken advantage of with brutal precision and timing by Bolton, flying from 20th place on 2nd February to 6th place in April, and with two games in full control of their playoff destiny. More…
In the middle of last week it seemed that the spell of good fortune, which has aided our remarkable ascent of the Championship table, had run its course. First came the news that another crucial bit had fallen off Dougie’s points gathering machine, namely Jay Spearing’s broken toe. This was followed by defeat at Leicester where, if the various reports I read were accurate, we deserved at least a point.
Our tentative finger hold on a playoff place was stamped on and we lost another player, David N’Gog, for the rest of the season. The elusive lady, however, had only taken a break. She returned to the Reebok in all her glory and helped us to an eighth consecutive home victory and a return to the heavily contested sixth spot in the league table.
When Sam Allardyce brought in Kevin Davies on a free transfer from Southampton in summer of 2003, few would have predicted the influence the Sheffield born striker would have had both on and off the field.
Cast your mind back to the summer of 2003, Kevin Davies was out of luck.
His early career showed so much promise, guiding League One (or Division Two at the time) Chesterfield to an FA cup semi final, scoring a hat trick at Burnden Park in the process. Here you can see a young Kevin Davies in action in the FA Cup Semi in 1997 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4Oy_saK7zQ The following summer Dave Jones took a gamble signing him for Premier League Southampton, which proved a great one, with Davies scoring 9 goals in his first season.

A defeat at Leicester wasn’t the end of the world for the Wanderers promotion hopes as results significantly went for the Lancashire club, including a win for tomorrow’s opponents Middlesbrough upsetting Forest’s play off hopes.
The phrase Bolton have got it all to do still holds a decent amount of relevance though, as I firmly believe Bolton cannot afford to lose another game this season. With games against Boro and Blackpool at home to come, it could be the game at Cardiff next week which decides Bolton’s playoff fate.
