BWFC 2 : 1 Sheffield Wednedsay
Things can only get better was very much the main theme at our pre-
We started like we meant business, challenging for every ball and pinning Sheffield Wednesday back. The moment we’d all been waiting for came after 10 minutes when Sammy Ameobi smashed one in from 25 yards. He doesn’t do tap ins and it was just what we needed, some reward for our efforts. The second goal was a mishit corner, deflected in by anybody’s guess. For once, we got the breaks. Sheffield Wednesday had a good shout for a penalty but Kieran Lee was booked for diving. The referee was a lot closer than me and the Sheffield Wednesday players didn’t protest. Ben Alnwick earned his keep with a couple of superb saves but we could have been out of sight with the chances we created. Gary Madine must be wondering what he has to do to score. It was a cracking game of football which the referee didn’t seem to want to end, adding 6 extra minutes on, which turned into over 9 minutes with what looked like a serious injury to Jordan Rhodes. Best wishes to Jordan for a speedy recovery. Every tackle and every headed clearance was cheered as the Wanderers fans roared the team to a much needed and overdue victory.
We looked like a Championship team today, more than matching Sheffield Wednesday for pace and effort. Hopefully we’ve kick started our season. We’ve still got lots to work on but the Bolton spirit was out there today, both on and off the pitch, giving hope that we can stay in this division as we recover from the past.
