MATCHDAY LIVE: Mjallby 3 Bolton Wanderers 2

This live event has finished

7:48pm

Match report will be up soon as I can.

7:48pm

All over - disappointing one in the end for Wanderers. But probably better to get them out of the way over here, eh?

7:47pm

Mind, Europeans find Mr Bean funny.

7:47pm

The referee just fell over. Ground erupted in laughter.

7:42pm

The striker got round Lonergan but Dervite got back to block his first and second shot. Good work.

7:41pm

Dervite twice clears off the line from Ekenberg.

7:37pm

Davies has definitely perked the Whites up since he came on.

7:32pm

Hall does well on the left, crosses for Davies whose shot is saved. Squirms out for Iliev but a wonderful block by Thordsson denies him a goal.

7:29pm

Wanderers just starting to play a little bit more now. Flurry of subs seems to have broken up the home side's rhythm.

7:28pm

Medo and Craig Davies on, Spearing and Beckford off.

7:25pm

Dervite on for Mills. Sensible...

7:24pm

Starting to get a bit ugly this game...

7:24pm

Something has happened off the ball with Mills and Ekenberg. Swedes accusing him of stamping on him - but no action taken.

7:22pm

Vela just took a bad tackle from Hokonsson. Got up, but looked nasty.

7:21pm

Subs so far for Whites... Vela 50 (for Mark Davies),  Iliev 60 (for Feeney), Pratley 63 (for Danns), Riley 60 (for McNaughton), Bolger 63 (for Ream), Threlkeld 60 (for Moxey)

7:15pm

Can barely see the pitch with the sun in my eyes. Need a cap.

7:14pm

Travelling fans doing their bit. Lots of singing in this second half.

7:12pm

Beckford denied by a good save from the Mjallby keeper.

7:08pm

Josh Vela coming on for Mark Davies.

7:04pm

Lonergan tips over a shot from Nilsson.

7:03pm

Club have just brought us some drinks and muffins. Tak!

7:01pm

6:59pm

No changes for Wanderers.

6:46pm

6:46pm

Mark Davies

6:43pm

Great cross from the left by Janovski and Kwame Bonzo was there to curl the ball into the bottom corner. All really rather fallen apart for Wanderers.

6:39pm

Goal - Mjallby. Bonzo.

6:36pm

Beckford goes close again. This time nearly getting on the end of Hall's deep cross.

6:33pm

Feeney's cross causes problems. Beckford nearly got on the end of it.

6:26pm

Ream heads over his own bar under pressure. Home side starting to play well and spray the ball around now.

6:23pm

Four goals in 12 minutes didn't help either.

6:23pm

Four goals in 12 minutes didn't help either.

6:23pm

Internet problems slowing me down at the moment. 

6:22pm

Another goal - this time the equaliser. Mills saw his pass charged down and after it was played out to the right, Haynes turned it in at the near post. Might have been an O.G but we'll be kind on Mills

6:16pm

All happening at the start of the game. Haven't been able to write a word of my match report yet.

6:15pm

Spearing's mis-placed pass lets Hokonsson through on goal. He does well to place his shot past Lonergan.

6:13pm

Danns drives the free kick into the wall. Keep playing at this pace and it could be a cricket score.

6:11pm

Davies brought down on the edge of the box by Bergdahl. Thought it was a penalty myself, looked to be just inside. 

6:09pm

Hall's finish was exquisite. One to watch back on YouTube when the club put it up.

6:08pm

Beckford returns the favour for Hall with a great backheel from McNaughton's driven cross. What a start from the Whites.

6:07pm

Another goal for Wanderers - a beauty from Rob Hall.

6:07pm

Feeney's pace really stretching Mjallby.

6:06pm

Beckford tucks the ball away after some great work on the left by Rob Hall. Picked the full-back's pocket and cut a cross back from the byline.

6:04pm

6:03pm

One straight from the training ground as Feeney links up with McNaughton. Ends with a defender making a great block on Danns' shot.

6:01pm

OK so the players are ready for kick-off. Let's get this one underway.

5:56pm

But a very pleasant way to end - lovely little ground and a decent crowd tonight.

5:55pm

Final Countdown to my flight home tomorrow. Been a gruelling tour.

5:55pm

I think this is Europe (the musicians, not the continent).

5:54pm

Five minutes before kick off and we're midway through a guitar solo of some sort. Might be finished by half time.

5:52pm

The internet is in and out here. Mostly out. But we'll persevere.

5:46pm

As one Swedish fan just said to me: "I live in Sweden, I follow football, but this place really is nowhere. I didn't know it existed."

5:44pm

Fifteen minutes to kick off and Wanderers just doing a few shooting drills. 

5:39pm

BWFC subs: Fitzsimons, C Davies, Iliev, Pratley, Medo, Riley, Bolger, Dervite, Threlkeld

5:37pm

Have been told that Trotter, Wheater, Bogdan and (until now) Mark Davies were carrying  a few minor injuries. They have trained, in the main, but are not being risked in games right now.

J J J J says

bogdan and wheater still got injury issues? theylook fine on the clubs videos on youtube, should be an exciting game and glad McNaughton has FINALLY got his international clearance. Subs? Should be a good game anyway

5:36pm

And here we are.... You Give Love a Bad Name (Bon Jovi). It's like 1987 round here.

5:31pm

Just indulging in a local hot dog. Man they love their sausages over here.

5:25pm

It's only a matter of time before Bon Jovi makes an appearance.

5:14pm

Some serious soft rock going on in this stadum...

5:12pm

Reckon that's Wanderers' strongest team. Should be a good game.

5:12pm

Wanderers team: Lonergan, McNaughton, Mills, Ream, Moxey, Spearing, Danns, Feeney, M Davies, Hall, Beckford

5:08pm

Kevin McNaughton confirmed by the club. Great news.

5:00pm

Wi-fi connections are a bit wobbly in the press box. Bear with us!

4:50pm

The Bolton News:

Here we are in the media room. No media staff working at Mjallby so we pretty much have the run of the place...

4:46pm

They are undefeated on the trip so far, with a good draw at Brondby and a scrappier win at FC Vestsjaelland.

4:45pm

Players have just arrived at the ground - some 80 miles away from their training base in Malmo.

4:45pm

The Bolton News:

Gorgeous day here in Hallevik on the Baltic Sea. 

4:43pm

Good evening from Southern Sweden - welcome to Matchday Live!

We are the one and only Wanderers! Great start this for the Super Whites!
As much as I enjoyed the World Cup it's good to be back!

Immemse respect for my fellow Bolton fans and past/present players.

Well it is pre-season mate... don't be too harsh on the kids, experience is the key here. Hopefully the new homegrown's can take this defeat in, taste it and put it to use when the season starts.
