From nowhere the wanderers get one back. Kirby on for Woolery who again has offered very little

Looking like Tuesday v FGR night all over again but 15 mins earlier.

Delaney sent off for Bolton. Need that 3rd goal though. Hopefully stops their momentum

Not feeling that confident even against ten men.

Great save by Davies, Bolton not giving it up yet. We don't make it easy do we?

That was made more difficult than it needed to be after notlob had a man sent off, we gave them far too much space instead of killing the game off.

We made life hard for ourselves, but I think we deserved the victory over the ninety minutes. It was one of those games, similar to Tuesday night, where the opposition only really committed players forward and threatened when we had a two goal advantage, albeit our game management could have been better in the fifteen minutes after their goal and Scott had to make a couple of great saves. In the first sixty minutes, I thought we carried all of the attacking threat and they had possession without a purpose, with Rovers keeping their shape and defending the eighteen yard box very well.

I thought there were a lot of solid rather than outstanding performances. Spearing, Feeney and Lewis all had good games, and Manny was back to his best defensively, although his distribution remains woeful at times. However, I thought Lloyd showed great hunger and energy and was probably man of the match. There was a promising cameo from Kirby.

We are now seven points off the top with two games in hand, and there is everything to play for.

Certainly not one of our best performances of the season but a deserved win against anlimited team.

The table certainly looks healthier now but still.s long way to go as we are now half way through the season

Yes some tired legs out there at the end but credit to the players for seeing it through. Kirby showed technically he’s decent and gives Lewis some competition and other options like putting Feeney wide like today. Thought the full backs once again had decent games

It's not a bad sign when we weren't all over them and showed vulnerabilities at times but still won the game. Maybe the tide is turning.

have to give Khan loads of credit playing out of position but doing well. KH is growing on me lets keep it going and move on
and to James Vaughan, 15 goals in 25 games is an amazing return from a player who cost nothing, one big question is Feeney if he is out of contract in summer can we get him he is an amazing player I really like him

Feeney is actually on a loan for the season.
