Bolton boss delivers Charlton Athletic verdict ahead of Valley clash

Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt says his side will be up for the challenge that Charlton Athletic will present tomorrow.

The Wanderers won the reverse fixture at the University of Bolton Stadium 3-1 back in September.

The Addicks, managed by Ben Garner at the time, took the lead in the fourth minute through Scott Fraser.

Conor Bradley equalised for the hosts, with goals from Kieran Lee and George Johnston sealing the 3-1 victory.

Bolton, who are fifth in the table, have only lost once – a 2-1 defeat to Derby County – in their last 10 outings in all competitions.

Charlton’s only defeat in five League One outings under Dean Holden came in the 3-1 loss away to Oxford United. The South Londoners sit nine points off the play-off spots heading into this weekend’s clash in SE7.

“They have had that new manager bounce, haven’t they?” said Bolton boss Ian Evatt.

“They have won three straight league games.

“He is a very experienced football man – a very good man.

“Everybody around these parts speaks very highly of him. We know it’s going to be a challenging game. Charlton have a good squad of players and they have been going well.

“We’re up for a challenge – we know it’s going to be a challenge.

“We will go there, concentrate on ourselves and our own performance and hopefully come back with some points.”
