I see what you did there. Fuckwit.

Still, another clean sheet for the defence helps confidence, even if it was against the worst attack in the country.

Jeff Stelling said they'd only scored 1 goal in the last 8 games or something similar. I may have made that up though, I was trying to watch Judge Judy at the same time.

Report: Bolton 1-0 Grimsby Town


IN BRIEF


Wanderers booked their place in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup with victory over Grimsby Town at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The deadlock was broken in the 20th minute of the encounter through Liam Trotter who nodded home from a corner for his second goal of the season.

The Mariners did push the Whites in the second period in a bid to force a replay, but their efforts were in vain as Bolton ran out winners.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers made three changes from the side who beat Port Vale last weekend with Chris Taylor, Jamie Proctor and Alex Perry coming in from the off for Phil Parkinson's men.

Max Clayton meanwhile returned to the bench following his lay-off through injury.

FIRST HALF

Bolton started brightly and were almost rewarded inside three minutes as Proctor saw his half volley take a few deflections en route before rattling the post.

After nearly breaking the deadline however, the Whites were then forced onto the back foot as Town looked to make their own mark on the clash with Luke Summerfield seeing a shot from distance flash wide of the goalmouth.

The game was lacking in too much goalmouth action however, although with 17 minutes on the clock Zach Clough spurned a glorious opportunity.

Following some superb link-up playing between Sammy Ameobi and Chris Taylor, the latter played a clever pass into the path of the academy graduate whose eventual shot trickled agonisingly wide.

With 20 minutes gone however, the deadlock was broken and it was Wanderers who had the goal as Trotter rose highest in the box from a corner to nod the ball home with ease.

It was certainly a confidence boost for the home side, with Clough seeing a first-time effort fly inches past the upright shortly after.

The remainder of the first half however passed without much of note, although Josh Gowling did flash a header from a corner just wide with five minutes of the opening period remaining.

Clough, a constant threat for Bolton, looked set to double his side’s advantage on the stroke of half time after powering downfield, but James McKeown was on his guard to smother his shot and collect the ball.

As the whistle went however, it was just the one goal lead for the Trotters.

SECOND HALF

With no changes at the break, the second half got underway and Wanderers were soon back on the attack with Proctor coming close on a handful of occasions early on in the second period.

The travelling Grimsby faithful were in good voice though and were already celebrating in the 56th minute as James Berrett found himself with only the goalkeeper to beat, but Mark Howard was at his best to palm away his point-blank range effort.

The opportunity cleared buoyed the visitors, with Wanderers needing to defend in their numbers in the minutes that followed as they threw men forward in search of a leveller.

Bolton were being tested by their League Two opponents, with the Mariners coming close a number of times.

Halfway through the second half meanwhile, Phil Parkinson made his first change of the game with Keshi Anderson replacing Proctor as Bolton looked to extend their lead and put the game beyond Grimsby.

Despite being behind still, the visitors weren’t a beaten side by any stretch and with the final ten minutes of the encounter looming, they were still making their presence known in the Bolton box.

For all their possession in the final third though, Howard wasn’t being called upon too often with his defence doing a sterling job in soaking up Town’s pressure.

Up the other end of the field meanwhile, substitute James Henry forced McKeown to parry an angled effort at his near post with three minutes remaining.

With four minutes of additional time indicated meanwhile Town threw men forward, but their efforts were in vain come the full time whistle.

We were a little fortunate to get away with that 2nd half. On the plus side Alex Perry looked at home, played well especially 1st half.

Decent turn out from the Grimsby supporters.

Not the best game, we never got out of second gear really, and only showed occasional glimpses of how we have been playing recently. Defensively solid again highlighted why we are where we are. It's refreshing to see us winning one nil, when not so long ago we would have conceded goals left right and centre. This was Grimsby's cup final but we pissed on their chips.

Always interesting at cup matches when they close the upper tiers, different seats and a different set of whingers.

Sheffield Utd at home. Tough draw. But we'll do them.

If they charge a sensible price it might see a good turnout, will probably be on TV as well.

Yep, £10 for season ticket holders was a good deal.

I was a bit miffed at having to sit in the lower tier though.

I keep a piece of chewing gum under my seat,and it's lasted six seasons.

Hope it's still there.

Sheffield United will bring a few. They must have the biggest fanbase in League One.

If it is priced right it could be a good crowd, and a good atmosphere.

Sheff U are our direct rivals for an automatic promotion place. Their manager chose them over us. It's going to be emotional.

I think we need to open a thread for it, and and keep it stainless of ridiculous puns so people aren't looking to steel the limelight

Not happy that they're closing the top tiers again. And it's a 2pm Sunday KO,which isn't ideal for me.
