MATCH PREVIEW: TOWN V BOLTON

17 March 2015

Parr insists the mood is still positive within the Town camp and is ready for battle ahead of the remaining nine games

Jonathan Parr has revealed that the mood in the Town camp is still ‘really positive’ despite last weekend’s defeat to Middlesbrough.

The Norwegian defender, who has shown his versatility with some fine performances in midfield recently, is adamant the players are still in confident mood ahead of the nine games remaining- beginning with tonight’s clash with Bolton at Portman Road.
 

“The mood is really positive, everybody is feeling good,” Jonathan told the official Club website.

“Over the past few weeks we have perhaps been a bit up and down in terms of results but I think our performances have been good and we’ve been unlucky not to get a few more points on the board. 


“We’re still in a great position with nine games remaining and there are still a lot of points to play for.
“We’re looking forward to tonight’s game against Bolton and hopefully we can get a win in front of our home fans.”

Team news

Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed the Blues will be without the services of Dean Gerken, who suffered concussion in the defeat to Middlesbrough, and striker David McGoldrick for the visit of Bolton this evening. Darren Ambrose (hamstring), Noel Hunt (knee) and Luke Hyam (knee) are all sidelined.


Bolton will check on the fitness of Saidy Janko before the game, after limping out of the warm up against Millwall last time out. Midfielder Neil Danns is suspended for the game, whilst highly rated Zach Clough will also miss out. Mark Davies, Kevin McNaughton, Marc Tierney, Max Clayton, Darren Pratley and David Wheater will all definitely miss out.

Where they currently stand

Town- 7th
Bolton- 16th

Last time we met


Blues left the Macron Stadium with a share of the spoils, following a goalless draw back in December. Despite the lack of goals, there were a number of chances with Jay Tabb squandering the best opportunity after working his way into the box. Daryl Murphy also fired just wide for Town as both sides settled for a point.
