3388 minutes played: Is this Bolton Wanderers man deserving of a new contract with Keith Hill’s side?

Published

on

It’s safe to say that it’s been a season to forget for Bolton Wanderers, as they edge closer to being relegated from League One this term. 

The Trotters have had their fair share of off-the-field problems in recent seasons, and it looks as though it’s had a negative impact on Keith Hill’s side.

Bolton are currently sat bottom of the League One table, and are 21 points adrift of safety, and it looks as though it’s only going to be a matter of time before their relegation into League Two is confirmed.

One player that has been a rare bright spark for the Trotters is goalkeeper Remi Matthews who has won his side points on his own at times with some heroic displays.

In a recent interview with The Bolton News, Matthews wouldn’t be drawn into making a call on his future, even though is current deal with the club is set to expire at the end of this year’s campaign.

In our latest FLW Spotlight, we look into Matthews’ statistics from this year’s campaign to date, and see whether he is deserving of a new deal with Keith Hill’s side.

Matthews has been a regular in the Bolton team, and it seems unlikely that he’ll be replaced in the starting XI between now and the end of this year’s campaign.

He has featured in 3388 minutes of action for Keith Hill’s side, but will be looking for an improvement in his goals conceded total so far this season.

Matthews has been beaten 71 times so far in all competitions for the Trotters, but it’s easy to forget that he has had a relatively young and inexperienced defence in front of him, which hasn’t helped his cause.

Bolton Wanderers have won the FA Cup five times. True or false?

The shot-stopper has attempted 806 passes in total, and with 633 of those passes proving successful, it makes for impressive reading for the Bolton goalkeeper.

He has also won 51 duels so far this term, which is something he’ll be confident of adding to as the season progresses in League One.

Matthews will know that his side need somewhat of a miracle to survive in the third-tier of English football this term, but he’ll know that he’ll be playing for his future in the next coming weeks.
