‘Very surprised by this’ – Bolton Wanderers fans react to Charlton Athletic squad news
Ian Evatt has reshuffled his squad for the Bolton Wanderers’ trip to Charlton Athletic with four changes made.
Declan John and Alex Baptiste replace Liam Gordon and George Johnston respectively in the Wanderers defense.
Josh Sheehan falls to the bench with Kieran Lee entering the fray, while Elias Kachunga replaces the unavailable Lloyd Isgrove.

One change is forced, with three rotational changes it seems to use the team in a series of busy fixtures.
And Wanderers fans on Twitter don’t seem sure about two of the changes Evatt made for the Addicks clash, with Sheehan and Johnston the players in question.

@aaron_bwfc posted: “Most that I can understand I’m not sure about Sheehan, I would have ditched the Sarcs first, but hey, let’s go white ones !!”
Gary Jackson wrote: “Okay with Gordon and Isgrove is a forced change but for me Johnstone has been our best defender this season and I would have rested Sarce not Sheehan. I guess 9:30 pm will tell us if that was the good decisions. “
Chris Merrills wrote: “Can understand Johnston being abandoned not because he played poorly individually, but Baptiste improves defense as a unit as he gets the best out of Santos while being strong himself. to see Lee start, but not at Sheehan’s expense. Lucky Sarce.
@Sheeehan_Szn posted: “Very surprised by this but I’m a fan of it, GJ needs a rest – guess it has nothing to do with form as it was awesome on Saturday. Sheehan has looked a bit far since. its back so put it down for saturday, DJ back, good to see and Kachunga begins. “
