Bolton Wanderers managed a 2-1 win over Fleetwood this weekend. This now takes them a step closer to getting out of the minus points they were on.
This was a great result for the Trotters this weekend as the win made it 3 in a row.
Keith Hill has really transformed this Bolton side. They started the season on -12 points. However, now they are on -2.
One more win and they will be out of the minus and can start to focus on getting out of the relegation zone.
Here’s 3 points that I have taken from the game that prove things have changed…
Chris O’Grady and Daryl Murphy were to thank for both Bolton goals. This already proves a big change in the squad.
When both players were introduced to the squad, they struggled to find the back of the net. However, in recent weeks, they have both improved massively.
The fact that both goals came from the first half paints a picture of strength. Not only did Bolton keep on top of their lead.
They also kept on top of the 3 points by not allowing Fleetwood to equalise. This is also an improvement.
The Bolton squad were kind of chucked together with little time to gel. Now that they have, they are performing collectively.
Stand out performers other than the goal scorers have been players like Jason Lowe and Josh Emmanuel. They are all playing for each other, the fans and to escape the bottom three.
