BROWN | Bolton is a big test for us

1 September 2016

Blues Boss previews the trip to the Macron Stadium.

Phil Brown is expecting a tough test at Bolton Wanderers this weekend, though he believes his players have nothing to fear going to the Macron Stadium.

The Blues travel to the table toppers looking to get back to winning ways in the league after defeat to Fleetwood Town at Roots Hall last weekend.

A midweek win and a clean sheet against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Checkatrade Trophy is something Brown is hoping the team can build on in their trip to the North West this Saturday.

“It’s a big test for us, no doubts about it, their league leaders and they’ve had a fantastic start to the season.

“They’ve still got their problems off the field of play but I’m not here to focus on that I’m here to focus on what’s going to be up against us on the field of play.

“There are lots of things to admire about Bolton at this moment in time, but we can never forget what we are.

“We are a team that came into this division last year and gave a good account of ourselves and found ourselves in a similar kind of position four of five games in last year.

“We then realised that when the transfer window closes there is nothing to fear, and there isn’t anything to fear. We’re going to go to the Macron Stadium with a game plan and hopefully that game plan will get us three points.”
