Bolton Wanderers 1 Charlton Athletic 1
First of all absolute respect to those 234 Addicks at Bolton tonight. Possibly the most unattractive away game for many a season. I have been monitoring this for a while, and the Football League need to look a bit more carefully at the lay out of the fixtures next season. We have travelled this season to Wolves, Leeds and Blackpool midweek despite a profligacy of southern games.
Another 1-1 draw then, who said a top 12 finish would be easy eh? The game appeared to follow a similar pattern to the game at Hillsborough on Saturday and Bolton dominated the 2nd half, and after Luzon substituted both Igor and Watt, it eradicated the ‘out ball’ and encouraged more pressure with Bolton equalising 11 minutes from time.
It was a good finish from Bulot for the goal and we actually forced 6 shots on target, which has been rare on our travels this season under all kinds of different guises.
With both Gomez and Fox rested, I was personally pleased to see the return of Rhoys Wiggins, wearing tonight the shirt that I’ve sponsored.
Three more games left, where did the time fly?

Elsewhere: Millwall had a massive win at home to a now pretty much relegated Wigan, and with Rotherham under the spotlight for a dodgy player, that will give the Lions one last burst of encouragement. At the top Bournemouth scored early at Reading and hung on for the win, Norwich won well at Leeds, Boro beat Wolves, Ipswich beat Cardiff and Derby thrashed sorry Blackpool.
