With confirmed new owner for Bolton the club was able to find professional players added to the only 2-3 remained and that played with a bunch of youngsters in first rounds of championship.
But this happened only in final day of market and arrives are all for free, with various of them old players near to the end of career and on weekend at first match of season, so second one could be not the best for them. Other ones played very few minutes last season in their old club. So, second match of season, time needed to gel, should change not too much respect 6-1 defeat against Rotherham.
More, strikers Murphy ( 36 y.o. striker 4g with Nottingham last season) and O'Grady ( 33 y.o. 7g with Oldham in L2 last season) are in doubt after not played on weekend, remain unavailable other new arrive Bunny ( def.), Edwards ( def.2), Earl and mdif. Buckley. Also key def.( for now), Brockbank ( 5) is doubtful.
In this situation, another newcomer, midf. Crawford ( 1/25+11 3g with Doncaster last season), could play as striker, trainer thinks he will not recover noone of the doubtful players.
On the otehr front, Oxford gained on weekend second win of the season against Tranmere, a weak newpromoted team but surely in betetr conditions then Bolton, at least Tranmere played in normal conditions start of season, players already gelled and in match rythm.
Napa ( midf.0) and Hanson ( def.2+3) remain absent for guests, Moore ( def.3+2 1g) in doubt, but neitehr him played against Tranmere. It is significative that asian bookies continues to no offer odds on this match.
