Bolton Face Trip To Free Scoring Cambridge


Bolton face a very tricky game tomorrow when they travel to Cambridge United.

It’s not been a good start to the League Two campaign for us, and it could have been a lot worse at around 7.45 on Tuesday evening, but at least we came back from 3-1 down to get a point at Barrow. The instinct is to hope that Antoni Sarcevic’s 95th minute equaliser was a turning point, or a launchpad to better things, but for that we need performances and results to improve. An away trip to the side top of the league would be some statement if we were to get a win.

Team news

Tom White is back after missing the last few weeks to injury, Nathan Delfouneso is available again after missing the Barrow game due to his wife giving birth (congratulations to them) – Looyd Isgrove and Shaun Miller areback in full training but aren’t expected to feature tomorrow.


This is our first trip to Cambridge in 20 years, back in 2000 we beat them 3-1 in the fourth round of the FA Cup en route to the semi-finals. Our last league visit was in April 1991, when we lost 2-1.

The opposition

Cambridge have started the season very well – top of League Two in fact. They’ve lost just one game so far, a 2-0 loss at Exeter, and already have two 5-0 wins under their belt. With 10 goals, Paul Mullin has scored more than the entire Bolton squad put together. They also have Wes Hoolahan, who has played in the Premier League for Norwich and scored for Ireland at Euro 2016.


Cambridge 3-1 Bolton
