Lørdag tok Bolton turen for å møte Sheffield United. Det ente med nok et tap for Parkinsons menn.2-0 ble resultatet i en kamp der målene kom i andre omgang.
Men Phil Parkinson så en del positivt i kampen.
-I thought we did very well at times. I’ve been to watch many games at Bramall Lane and I’ve seen many teams get overrun in the first half, and that definitely wasn’t the case today, sa han til bwfc.co.uk etter kampen.
-We’re bitterly disappointed though to concede two bad goals.
Callum Connolly fikk sin debut i Boltondrakta etter at han ble hentet inn på deadline day.
-Callum did very well – we asked him to do a specific role for the team against a very fluent Sheffield United midfield and he did excellently. He’s a player who can only get better for us, sa Parkinson.
