It seems unlikely that Bolton Wanderers will be able to set up any friendlies to give the squad players a few minutes under their belt due to the busy schedule for the peak of the season, Evatt believes.
The Trotters have tried to organize friendlies this season to give players who haven’t had regular playing time some neatness.
Matches against Burnley and Sheffield on Wednesday around the holiday season did not materialize.
The Wanderers are currently on an unbeaten streak of 14 games, a results streak that has included 11 wins and there are eight games left of their Ligue 2 campaign to go.
Evatt’s side travel to South Wales tomorrow to face Newport County, before having a fortnight’s matchday Saturday-Tuesday.
And with the frequency of upcoming fixtures, allied to the intense training sessions and the extra work given to players who need it, Evatt doesn’t expect Bolton to be able to set up any friendlies before the end. in the countryside.
He said: “Because after the Easter weekend, which is obviously busy, it’s Saturday-Tuesday, Saturday-Tuesday for two weeks, and by then it’s almost over.
“That’s how fast it’s going to be over, so it’s going to be hard to get friendlies, but like I said before, the way they train and the intensity of the training sessions and the refills we’re giving to players who need them after practice sessions should get them through. ”
As for team spending for players who want to get games under their belts away from the University of Bolton stadium, the window for players to move to National League clubs is closing tomorrow and Evatt did not mention any movement. on the cards.
The Wanderers have full-back Liam Gordon at Dagenham & Redbridge, Muhammadu Faal at Barnet, Jak Hickman at King’s Lynn Town, as well as Jamie Mascoll at Waterford and Ali Crawford at League Two rivals Tranmere Rovers.
