After 70-odd minutes of doing practically nothing the first save of his Bolton career was a stunner. Came up with the goods in stoppage time, too.
Steady as ever. Saw plenty of the ball and his partnership on the right with Josh Dacres-Cogley is improving with each passing week.
Looked confident on the ball and just picked off the Cheltenham attackers as will whenever anything threatened to break through. Dominant performance.
His return has been pretty seamless and his range of passing has been much missed. Only got turned once or twice but an encouraging display on the whole.
Had twice as many touches in the Cheltenham half and even ventured infield for a couple of shots at goal. Looking like a good find.
His delivery for the second goal was sublime and sooner or later he is going to get back on the goal trail with Evatt willing his players to shoot from distance.
Absolutely everywhere, especially in the first half. Any loose ball in midfield was being snapped up in an instant and if anyone enjoys a slide tackle more than Dempsey, I haven’t seen them.
Buzzed around midfield and knitted things together well. Seems more willing to add a touch of risk to his passes this season, which is wonderful to see.
Actually started the day with a couple of loose passes – but improved dramatically, putting in some great balls from the left and going close with a header.
Everything but the goal. Gave old head Curits Davies the terrors with his movement and pressing and linked up well with Charles.
DION CHARLES…8.5. MOM
Two goals to start this season’s pile – and a performance that was very Dion Charles. Tenacious D is looking in good tune once again.
Subs: Maghoma 73 (for Dempsey), Nlundulu 73 (for Adeboyejo), Thomason 80 (for Sheehan), Mendes Gomes 80 (for Morley), Jerome 81 (for Charles) Not used: Forrester, Ashworth.
