-Carlos strikes a really good ball. The players were saying how much the ball moved. That’s why we brought him in. He has that X-factor in the final third and that’s the only negative tonight that he had a slight hamstring strain. Other than that, everything went pretty smoothly, sa Boltons trener Ian Evatt til bwfc.co.uk etter kampen.

I det 12. minutt satte Almeida Santos inn 2-0 målet mens det var Aaron Morlay som gjorde det siste målet i det 53. minutt. Assist på de to siste målene kom fra den første målscoreren; Mendes Gomes.

-We got off to a very fast start, which is always important for us. We ask the players to start fast in every game because we know if we get the first goal then it really sets it up for us. We did that and then we got the second and there was lots of good stuff. Again, there was some final-third details we can improve on, but you can’t really argue when you win 3-0. The only slight disappointment is that we didn’t show that killer instinct in the second half but the game served a purpose. We got some key minutes into players who haven’t been playing regularly, sa Ian Evatt.
