Bolton er nå 4 poeng bak direkte opprykksplass. Men Ian Evatt og Bolton har ikke gikk opp håpet.

Fansen, og trener Ian Evatt,  hadde nok håpet på å ta tre poeng hjemme mot ligaleder Portsmouth lørdag ettermiddag. Slik ble det ikke. Det ble 1-1 og dermed «bare» ett poeng.

-Football is a game that can be cruel sometimes and I think the players’ performance today deserved the win. We were punished on a transition from a throw-in to their most dangerous player and made it really difficult for ourselves. But after the first 10 minutes we were dominant and had all the opportunities, sa Ian Evatt til bwfc.co.uk etter kampen lørdag.

Videre sa han:

-I can’t be critical of the players. Of course, we needed to win today and wanted to win but the performance was excellent, and we have to focus on that and while there’s still hope you never know. It can change quickly in football. There are still points to play for and games to go. We have to win the next one and that lowers the gap and then you never know.

Nå må det hentes poeng

– We have to put pressure on by winning on Tuesday. That’s non-negotiable and get the gap back to one point and you never know. They (Derby) then have a tough away game (at Cambridge) and we have a home game and things can change again.

Tirsdag 16. april er det ny hjemmekamp for Bolton. Da møter de Shrewsbury Town klokken 20.45. Den kan du se via Wanderers TV eller følge med inne på vårt Livesenter.
