Bolton’s 6th to bolt into 6th not to be

Bolton Wanders had a chance to make it an impressive 6th league win in a row and also surpass Middlesboro in the table into 6th but it was not to be. Middlesboro goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer was impressive in goal to deny Bolton a game which was theirs to win. The match ended in a 0-0 draw.

Bolton Wanderers playmaker Jay Jay Okocha returned from injury. In form El-Hadj Diouf was on the substitute’s bench. Okocha looked right up to speed and played well for 90 minutes adding many dimensions to Bolton's play.

Diouf entered as a substitute as Bolton tried late to grab the points. They looked more potent with both players on the pitch but were likely not started together because of Diouf’s recent international.

Also of note was Ricardo Gardner who was a deserved man of the match. He passed extremely well into the other half all day.

Bolton look set for a place in European competitions next year. A taste of Okocha and Diouf together looked promising.
