Wanderers picked up their first league victory of the season with a hard-earned win over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites took the lead inside ten minutes, with Sammy Ameobi’s beautifully crafted 25-yard shot giving the Owls’ keeper absolutely no chance.

Their advantage was doubled shortly after the hour mark meanwhile, with Sam Hutchinson turning home a Bolton corner at the near post.

The visitors did pull one back in 22 minutes remaining however through Kieran Lee from close range, but it proved to be scant consolation come full time.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers made two changes from the side who started against Aston Villa last time out, with Josh Vela returning from injury and Ben Alnwick coming in between the sticks for Phil Parkinson’s men.

FIRST HALF

With the sun shining at Macron Stadium, proceedings got underway and it was the home side who enjoyed the first foray into dangerous territory, only to see Adam Armstrong’s volley skew wide of the mark inside three minutes.

Sammy Ameobi also forced the visitors to defend deeply soon after, with his low ball across goal being intercepted at the vital moment.

The Owls were proving themselves to be a threat on the counter attack however, with Gary Hooper causing problems inside the opening stages.

With ten minutes on the clock though, Wanderers took a deserved lead courtesy of Ameobi’s glorious effort from 25 yards which gave Joe Wildsmith absolutely no chance.

Wednesday set about attempting to pull themselves level, but Bolton were hungry for more and Mark Little saw his lofted cross tipped over the crossbar by a back-peddling Wildsmith.

Madine and Vela meanwhile combined soon after, with the latter seeing his angled drive saved by the Wednesday keeper, while Wheater saw a header from a corner cleared off the line with 19 minutes on the clock.

The Whites were continuing their pressure at every opportunity, with them visibly not happy to sit back and defend their slender advantage and Ameobi keen to add to his own personal tally for the afternoon.

An Armstrong free-kick just after the half-hour mark saw Wheater come close again too, with his floating header inches wide of the goalmouth.

Some heroic defending by Wanderers with seven minutes of the first period remaining saw the visitors denied an equaliser however, with Mark Beevers somehow heading the ball off the line with it seeming as though Adam Reach was certain to score.

Parkinson’s men did throw men forward during the final minutes of the second half, but come the break, they lead courtesy of Ameobi’s pearl of an effort.

SECOND HALF

The visitors made a double substitution at half time as they looked for a route back in to the game and were handed an opportunity within 30 seconds of the restart with a free-kick in a promising position, but the eventual shot was straight into the Bolton wall.

And in line with their attacking substitutions, Wednesday enjoyed a period of pressure with a succession of corners ultimately proving fruitless.

Jordan Rhodes spurned a glorious chance for the Owls too with 56 minutes on the clock, with him unable to turn the ball home at the back post with Alnwick stranded.

The frontman was causing numerous problems for the Whites, with Alnwick spilling his header moments later and his defenders clearing away the danger.

Bolton themselves were then gifted the best opportunity possible to double their advantage, but Vela's shot was deflected away from the goalmouth at the death.

From the resulting corner however, Bolton did get their second of the afternoon with Filipe Morais' set-piece being turned home by Hutchinson.

And it was almost three a minute later, but Madine somehow smashed his effort from four yards against the post with the goal at his mercy.

Macron Stadium was rocking, but out of nowhere the visitors pulled a goal back through Lee with 22 minutes to go, with Morais being booked for handling Rhodes' initial effort before the former turned it home.

Bolton's two-goal advantage was almost immediately restored however, with Morais' long range effort being tipped over by Wildsmith.

It was absolute bedlam at BL6, with another chance going begging for the Owls and having to be cleared off the line.

Alnwick was called upon again with 13 minutes to go, somehow keeping out substitute Lucas Joao's effort.

Nails were being bitten around Macron Stadium, while Bolton again came close with Madine being denied and Wheater seeing a header cleared off the line with ten minutes to go.

And heading into the final stages of the clash, the tempo wasn't for letting up.

With two minutes left, goalscorer Lee went down in the area, but referee David Coote brandished the Wednesday man with a yellow card for simulation.

And with six minutes added on, it was all hands to the pump for Wanderers and they almost had a third with Noone's header flying narrowly over from close range.

An injury to Rhodes however halted play, with the Owls man being stretchered from the field of play to leave the visitors down to ten for the final few minutes.

Try as Wednesday might however, they just couldn't break Wanderers down and come full time, Bolton had the points.

FULL TIME

What an exciting game... Chances, drama, shots cleared off the line at both ends, Keepers making saves, Madine hitting the post, penalties denied and and 101 minutes of football.

Glad I turned up today. Commiserations dad for deciding to stay at home.

This is the problem. If they concentrated on the game more instead of shagging in one of these then we would be much better!

Didn't get there until 2.50 due to traffic problems,but was rewarded with a much improved performance.
How Madine didn't put a third goal away to kill the game off I'll never know.
A long way to go,but a straw to clutch at,at last.

Great game and a deserved win, we may just make a fist of it yet. Great to see Sammy back. I think Vela and Henry both added to a much better midfield and that allowed all the team to perform. well done lads.

Wasn't it just great? Very Happy But when they scored I felt my heart sinking into my boots and the last ten minutes especially did nothing good for my blood pressure. I don't know about you biggie but stoppage time seemed to last forever and I'm just about out of fingernails tonight. God I thought the ref was NEVER going to blow full time and when he finally did I was a wreck. affraid

Still, it was just fantastic to see us win and the journey home was a breeze. I'm still grinning from ear to ear. cheers

Best performance for 3 years.

Madine was absolutely immense, I can't remember a better performance from a BWFC player in years. Shame he can't hit an open goal from a yard. The bellend.

Vela ran them ragged, Henry was a calming influence in midfield, the full-backs supported well when they could.

It was a great victory but it was despite Parky rather than because of him. Bannon was given the freedom of Bolton, if Parky can't see something so fucking obvious he needs to be potted while we're still in with a slim chance of survival. He should have had Ameobi off at half-time, that guy could get injured lying in bed. Why he took Armstrong off before Ameobi I'll never know.

Every credit to the players who all gave 100%, but Parky still needs to go.

Could have won that game 6-1 with fifteen minutes to go. Felt like a promotion party at the final whistle with a lap of honour thrown in. Every credit to a great team effort. We really pressed them high up the park. An energised midfield in front of an improving and confident defence was great to see. 
If teams like Sheff Weds are our level, we might be in with a chance of staying in this league.
The season starts now.

And yes stoppage time was just over 9 minutes in the second half because Rhodes went down injured for 3 minutes in the 6 that were added.

A good post then you have to spoil it. Your downer on Ameobe is quite laughable. Armstrong or Ameobe please tell me your taking the piss.

Ameobi played well until he went down towards the end of the first half when the last defender took him out. It was clear he was struggling after that. He should have been withdrawn at half time. He isn't the sort of player who runs things off.

He did nothing in the second half and was clearly struggling, so to take Armstrong off before him was ridiculous.

Spot on, Ameobi didn't look right after that tackle and when I saw Morais get off the bench was surprised that Ameobi didn't go off.

Also noticed Vela had an Ice pack strapped to his Ankle at the end of the game as he walked around applauding the fans, hopefully just precautionary.

Ok i accept that he took the knocks and looked like he was struggling, but after the second tackle he tracked back to win the ball in front of the East stand. And left to a standing ovation. 

Armstrong for me continues to disappoint, he floated a couple of great free kicks into the box even though it was his best game we need to see a bit more. 

He left Ameobe on because he produces something different and is unpredictable, but took him off due to lack of match fitness.

Vela having to play with injections was a worry especially as we have nobody else with his quality and the engine to cover the ground as he did. With Pratley and Henry behind him we actually seem to be competitive in the middle but needing injections doesn't bode well for him having a consistent run in the team for the rest of the season - which we'll need if we are to have any chance of clawing back the points we are trailing 21st place.

There was some irony in the BN announcing prior to the game that Madine had had more shots on target than any other Championship player and then when he finally gets what is virtually an open goal he misses. Still it's indicative that when Vela plays our attacking unit has more happening when we get forward - which would better suit ALF's game.

Madine continues to disappoint in front of goal. The header he put wide from the free kick in the first half was as bad as the open goal he missed in the second. If Vela continues to play in front of the midfield, ALF is the obvious choice for up front.
