Town Host Bolton on Opening Day
Thursday, 23rd Jun 2022 09:15

Town will face Bolton Wanderers at Portman Road on Saturday 30th July, the opening day of 2022/23.

Last season the Trotters did the double over the Blues, inflicting a 5-2 defeat in Suffolk before winning 2-0 in Lancashire.

The Blues’ first ever visit to newly-promoted League Two champions Forest Green Rovers follows the week after with Liam Manning's MK Dons visiting Suffolk on Saturday 13th August.

Three days later, Town visit Burton Albion, then the Blues take a trip to Shrewsbury on Saturday 20th August. The opening month ends with Barnsley at Portman Road.

September sees an away game at Accrington Stanley, then Cambridge and Bristol Rovers at home, before visits to Sheffield Wednesday and Plymouth Argyle.

At Christmas, Town are away at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday 17th December, then host Oxford United on Boxing Day. That’s followed by a visit to Portsmouth on Thursday 29th December and a New Year’s Day trip to Lincoln City.

At Easter, the Blues are at home to Wycombe on Good Friday, April 7th, and away Cheltenham on the Monday.

Town’s run-in continues with Charlton visiting Portman Road on Saturday 15th April, Port Vale making the same trip on the Tuesday, a visit to Peterborough on Saturday 22nd April and Exeter at home the following week, before the Blues end the season with an away game at Fleetwood on Saturday 6th May.

In addition to the early-season visit to Burton and the Christmas Portsmouth fixture, away midweek games also include Port Vale on Tuesday 25th October and Bristol Rovers on Tuesday 14th February.

A full list of Town’s League One fixtures can be found here.

The draw for round one of the Papa John’s Trophy takes place at 11.30am with the Carabao Cup round one draw at 2.30pm. Both are being shown live by Sky Sports News.

That winter run of fixtures looks very kind to Town (December - February).

BossMan added 09:22 - Jun 23
Thats about as easy an opening 9 fixtures as you could hope for then top 2 clash away to Sheff Wed will tell us where we at on game 10.

Bristol rovers away (new ground) on Valentines Day that sounds like a costly negotiation ?

Was right with the fixture wrong about the location

Billysherlockblue added 09:36 - Jun 23
Bring it on!

Those two defeats against Bolton last season hurt a lot when you consider not so long ago they were on the verge of going out of business. Forrest Green away there's bigger grounds in the Thurlow Nunn league but you've got to admire what they've achieved and it wont be easy it's like a cup final for them..

Nice if we have a few in Portman Road for opener

mkbobby added 09:52 - Jun 23
looking forward to celebrating promotion with a weekend in Blackpool away to Fleetwood

ChrisFelix added 09:54 - Jun 23
Looking at the start & compare with last seasons beginning. Some of which are against the same competition.
It will be big test & a real indication to see if lessons have been learnt. Certainly hope so

The usual over optimism I see above 🤦‍♂️

Tough Christmas period and anyone who thinks this will be easy coming from where we finished last season doesn’t know football very well!

BossMan added 10:23 - Jun 23
And the usual lack of ambition from you Wooly. Anyone who thinks another season without promotion is acceptable is hardly a football genius but thanks for setting us up for failure

Anyone who thinks we are going to walk this league needs to wake up, every game will be like a cup final to our opponents. We will be the team that everyone needs to beat and will be up for every game against us. We thought last season would be easy and look what happened. i trust in McKenna but it's up to the players to play their best. A lot of players were hit and miss last season they need to up their game and be more consistent. Come January we will know if there's any chance and see what happens in that transfer window that will be the telling point. Good luck Town play your hearts out for the supporters.

Ive been looking forward to the Bristol Rovers fixtures since they were promoted and the chance to meet up with distant relatives, but both matches are on a Tuesday night! Typical.

Monkey_Blue added 10:40 - Jun 23
Got to play them all home and away…. If we want to go up we need to win games. The expectation level we have it really shouldn’t matter who we get when and where

BossMan added 11:04 - Jun 23
@brenden there isn't one single post where anybody says we are going to walk this league. And honestly why would any supporter wait until Jan to see where we are ? Get some ambition man and demand more from the team and more from the club. No doubt you're one of those that will be citing top 6 as progress but for me anything less than promotion is failure so target has to be top 2 as who wants lottery of play offs

Pessimist added 11:08 - Jun 23
I am relatively content with these fixtures, and I am pleased that we are at home for the first one - even if it is against Bolton Wanderers!

Europablue added 11:13 - Jun 23
We can keep watching football and pretend that the world cup is not happening in winter in stadium built on the bodies of near slave labour.

Tractor_Boy_in_HK added 11:18 - Jun 23
As easy a start as we could hope for you say...what about last season? That schedule was a gift, which we completely squandered.

Europablue added 11:19 - Jun 23
I don't know what the fuss is about the fixture list, we have to play everyone twice over the course of the season. I don't think it matters much when you play specific teams except it might be better to play Derby early or the other relegated teams, and it might be better to play the promoted teams a little bit later.

Wicksy added 11:31 - Jun 23
First game not showing on fixtures tab?

Wooly74 added 11:37 - Jun 23
I see Bossman is very opinionated 🤦‍♂️

ArnieM added 13:09 - Jun 23
The whole season is going to be tough and I feel anyone who views it differently is wear blue tinted specs tbh . Let’s hope we can get in that to two 👍

AlanG296 added 13:21 - Jun 23
Yes, it will be tough, it always is, it's a very competitive league, but we must go into it with the belief that anything less than promotion is failure. That's not disrespecting the opposition, nor putting undue pressure on anyone. Time to end the decline. #ourtime
