Ian Evatt has vowed to use his Wanderers squad to the full as they start a triple challenge in League One.

The Whites face trips to Cheltenham Town and MK Dons before coming back to the University of Bolton Stadium in a week which will test their promotion credentials to their fullest.

Evatt has no new injuries but will not be risking Josh Sheehan or Lloyd Isgrove for the time being as they continue their comeback from long term injury.

But with a few minor knocks now cleared up after the weekend win against Charlton, the Bolton boss believes he has enough options to handle a big week ahead.

“This week, with Cheltenham, MK and then Peterborough, there are three big games but three very different challenges,” he said.

“Just by the way we play and how intense it is, we can’t just keep going to the well with the same team because it would probably run dry halfway through the MK Dons game. And with the way they play on a big pitch, challenging you with the way they keep the ball, it would be physically demanding.

“We feel like we have the squad to be able to rotate and only come the end of the season can I be judged on whether that is right or wrong but, for me, it is the right thing to do because it keeps the energy in the team and when we have that we are a difficult team to play against.

“But as I have said before, I trust all of my players. If I put them out there, I trust that they can do the job I am asking them to do.

“It is a big week, a tough week, but we are looking forward to it.”

Evatt did not use Sheehan, Isgrove or Eoin Toal in the B Team game against Huddersfield Town but confirmed they are not planned to be part of the squad at Cheltenham or MK.

“James Trafford is fine after that little ankle knock, everyone else is fine,” he said, giving a fitness update to the local press.

“Lloyd Isgrove is still struggling a little bit with the plantar fascia but other than that Josh Sheehan and Eoin Toal are increasing their fitness levels all the time, Owen Beck is looking a bit better this week but not quite where we need him yet. He is getting there fast and we have seen some good signs from him today.”

After returning to winning ways last weekend against Charlton, Evatt is looking for his team to be even more ruthless in front of goal this weekend.

Confidence is high after a positive performance but the Bolton boss believes his players can make life easier for themselves by putting away more of their opportunities.

“I wouldn’t say it went all our way against Charlton but it was better,” he said. “Honestly, I thought we could have scored more goals.

“The gameplan was executed perfectly and I was really pleased with how we pressed them and still managed to dominate possession as well as scoring the three goals.

“If I was being a perfectionist, which I am, then I would want to punish them more but that is a good sign, I think.

“We played well at Plymouth but didn’t put away our chances. Against Crewe and then Charlton that improved but I still think we are capable of more.”
