Summary

  • Three changes for Wanderers - in come De Ridder, Mears and Dawson
  • Out go Ricketts, Vela and Ream

4:56pm

DP - Thanks for everyone's patience with all the IT gremlins today at the Reebok...at least the three points was secured

4:53pm

DP - That's it....Chris Foy puts his whistle to his mouth and the points are Wanderers'....could be a big three points that.

4:52pm

DP - Wanderers have the ball where they want it...in the corner and Burnley are pegged back

4:49pm

DP - four added minutes to endure for the Whites faithful

4:48pm

DP - A fright for home fans with 30 seconds of normal time left as Junior Stanislas curls a right-footer a few yards wide

4:46pm

DP - All hands to the pump now as Ngog gets back to get in a good diving header clearance

4:45pm

DP - just need to stay tight now. Have to say the response to going behind has been superb. Dougie Freedman's double substitution was met with boos on 58 minutes - well the pair turned the game on its head

4:42pm

Just before the goal, Alonso saw a thunderous free-kick from distance rattle the post

4:41pm

Yes they can!!! GOAL for Wanderers on 82 minutes as the other substitute David Ngog diverst Spearing's off-target drive into the box past a helpless Grant

4:41pm

4:39pm

DP - SKD on for the final 10 to give his namesake Craig some support up front...Can the Whites snatch a win here??

4:37pm

Kevin Davies coming on for Eagles. Substitution cheered.

4:37pm

DP- closing in on the last 10 minutes and Wanderersare increasing the pressure. Craig Davies is causing real concerns for the Clarets defence and they have just had to clear two efforts off the line

4:35pm

DP - have to say it was such a teasing cross from Chungy but still needed the fine finish from Craig Davies

4:33pm

MI - Think the first one was Chungy's.

 

4:32pm

MI - Two shots cleared off the line – second one was Alonso's effort.

4:28pm

MI - Subs combine again. Exchange between Ngog and Davies opens things up – and just as Davies thought he had beaten Grant with a little dinked shot, the keeper made a great stop.

4:25pm

MI - Great ball in from Chungy. Craig Davies threw himself at the ball and got the feintest touch with his head to send it past Grant. Great finish.

4:24pm

GOAL! Craig Davies

4:23pm

MI or DP you did not show whos playing and who's on the bench I can't make it to the game today so I would like to know.thanx.

 

Wanderers (4-2-3-1): Bogdan; Mears, Knight, Dawson, Alonso; Spearing, Pratley; Eagles, Chung-Yong, De Ridder, Sordell.

Subs: Lonergan, Ricketts, Ream, Vela, K Davies, C Davies, Ngog.

Burnley (4-4-2): Grant; Trippier, Shackell, Edgar, Lafferty; Stanislas, McCann, Marney, Wallace; Austin, Ings.

Subs: Jensen, Long, Treacy, Stock,. Mills, Paterson, Vokes.

4:21pm

DP - Results elsewhere coupled with the Burnley goal here currently see the Whites fourth bottom and just 2 points off the drop zone

4:19pm

MI - Bogdan's kicking has been all over the place today.

4:16pm

De Ridder off, Craig Davies on.

Sordell off, Ngog on.

BOTH substitutions booed.

4:15pm

MI - The original corner should not have been given. The second one, from which Burnley scored, should have been better defended.

4:14pm

MI - Corner from Stanislas headed back by Marney to Edgar at the far post. Easy nod home for him, despite pressure from Spearing.

4:13pm

1-0 Burnley

4:03pm

MI - Almost ready for the off in the second half. Can Wanderers pick up the tempo again?

3:48pm

MI - Wanderers got better as the first half went on there. Few half chances and an encouraging start from Dawson, De Ridder and Pratley. No goals yet though, so it's all to play for.

3:46pm

MI - Sordell just burst into life and drilled a shot just wide from the edge of the box. Wanderers just waking up now.

3:45pm

DP - Dawson again meets a deep corner at the back post...surely one will go in for him soon if the Clarets dont track the runs

3:44pm

MI – Pratley skimming shot takes a deflection and out for a corner. Been a good half for the midfielder.

3:42pm

MI - Eagles gets past McCann and strikes a right footed shot into the side netting. Had Grant beaten.

3:42pm

MI - Five mins to go. One thing is for sure, the second half is going to be better...

3:41pm

DP - home fans frustrated with a casual and wayward flick from Eagles that set Burnley on the attack but fortunately their corner came to nothing

3:35pm

DP- Dawson looking a real threat from set-pieces with good movement at the back post

3:34pm

Knight booked. Foul on Ings.

3:33pm

MI - Dawson wins header from Spearing's corner again. Knight fresh airs it, then Eagles blasts one well over.

3:31pm

MI - Dawson header cleared by Grant's feet at his near post. Defender goes close again.

3:30pm

MI - decent bit of football from Wanderers on the right. De Ridder hits a shot on the turn, deflected wide.

3:29pm

MI - Not a classic. Pratley standing out so far for Wanderers. It's his type of game.

3:25pm

MI - Spearing corner, Dawson got a free header but didn't get it on target. Big miss.

3:19pm

MI - Brilliant defending from Pratley as Wallace and Marney combined on the left and delivered a really dangerous cross. Superb clearance from the midfielder.

3:18pm

DP - First corner of the day for Whites was low from Spearing and half-cleared but lovely floated ball back in by Darren Pratley needed some commanding goalkeeping from Lee Grant as he came out to punch well clear

3:17pm

MI - four touches later, Wanderers are defending a corner.

3:16pm

MI - First corner of the game for Wanderers

3:14pm

MI - Not much quality in the game until a good run from Ings. Got past Alonso rather too easily until Dawson steamed in. Corner cleared.

3:11pm

DP - Burnley looking composed on the ball as you would expect from a team in the play-off mix but Whites are digging in and Spearing is already buzzing around the midfield

3:09pm

MI - for those who were confused, this is me!

3:08pm

As both me and Dave Pye are doing this live commentary, we'll differentiate the comments. I'll be MI, Dave can be DP. Simples.

3:08pm

Great free-kick whipped in from the right edge of the box by Jay Spearing needed a good headed clearance and it got one just yards out.

3:07pm

Few people were critical of Spearing's set pieces last week - just whizzed in a beauty there. Cleared by Edgar, I think.

3:05pm

Early attack for the visitors spurred on by a decent-sized following as a cross from the right is met by Charlie Austin and leaves Zat Knight down momentarily but he is soon up without treatment after a knock on the back of his head

3:04pm

Eagles playing centrally. De Ridder on right, Chungy on left from the start.

3:01pm

Ready for the off here.

3:00pm

Few would have expected Mears to be back in action today. Big day for him against his former club.

2:59pm

Marc Iles back again. Dave has gone for a sit down in a dark room because of the IT issues.

2:58pm

Dave Pye here at last..Sorry for the delay folks...as Marc Iles said there have been power problems at the Reebok today affecting internet as well as the pa system... hopefully we will be okay now ready for kick off in the big derby

All OK now. Shame we didn't get Beyonce at some stage, though.

2:51pm

 
In a word, no. We'd been given a fairly strong hint that he would be in the squad, if not start.

2:51pm

Think De Ridder did quite well when he came on at Watford last week. Will be interesting to see him get a bit more game time today.

2:48pm

Three changes for Wanderers - in come Mears, Dawson and De Ridder and out go Ream, Vela and Ricketts. What do you think?

2:45pm

Internet issues, power outages and a nasty paper cut from the programme... but we're up and running!

Bolton were poor,Burnley, marginally the better side must feel aggrieved.I wouldn't have given tuppence for a Bolton victory with 20 minutes to go.

There are too many poor players to mention,Holden and Wheater are an absolute must.

We won ! We won ! We're just ten points away from a play-off place ! Now if we can just..........
Only kidding. To sustain a promotion challenge, what the team needs is backbone. Simon Charlton said as much on GMR the other week. The introduction of Medo and the return of Holden and Wheater should go some way towards providing this ingredient.
