Heart in mouth moment when he went down injured in the first half. Came to his side’s aid with a huge save from Cole but distribution could be improved.
It was sloppy for the goal, no question. His defending was better after that and certainly looked more assured when he moved into the middle.
Quite a task dropping into the middle of the back three on a couple of days’ notice but he coped well, won plenty of duels and succumbed to cramp later on.
Had a couple of decent headed chances that he should probably have buried. Saw plenty of possession – twice as much as any Barnsley player, in fact.
Semi-culpable for the opening goal after dropping off Phillips but atoned for it with some decent runs from wing-back. Also effective going into the middle later on.
The wait to see the Maghoma of old goes on. He’s definitely in there – but the incision we saw earlier in the season has been absent of late.
Heavily leaned upon in that midfield pivot role, given some risky passes around his own box and kicked from pillar to post. Better than this, though.
Lost his marker for the opener but was very lively otherwise, definitely Bolton’s most effective attacking player for the opening hour.
Great finish for the goal – and leaving that aside he showed a maturity of performance, bouncing back after the Blackpool disappointment.
Unlucky at times where the odd bounce or pass did not go his way but he needs to keep the ball better than he did against Barnsley.
That waspishness is still there but when the ball came firing across the penalty box he was strangely absent. Could have helped himself in the first half.
Subs: Collins 7, 63 (for Charles) – An assist and nearly the winner. Good signs.
Bodvarsson 6.5, 63 (for Adeboyejo) – An assured touch which gave Bolton a chance to build.
Ramsay 6, 68 (for Taylor) – Whipped in one superb ball from the right.
Morley 74 (for Sheehan).
