Good result. Good pen save from Crellin, but his decision making needs work.

They need to get their finger out with this system as there seems to be issues with almost all games so far this season!

I think fitness is a problem, first 20 minutes our pressing and movement was superb, but we tailed off after that, and second half was nailbiting stuff

As with a lot of us - I only saw the second half on Ifollow.

Missed our good first half so not much to say other than my usual two points - that being I don't want Brockbank on the wing and we need a backup keeper ASAP.

Otherwise it seems to be gelling a little better each game.

Onwards.

Report: Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Bradford City


BILLY CRELLIN’S second-half penalty save ensured Bolton Wanderers picked up victory at the University of Bolton Stadium.

The Wanderers stopper guessed correctly to prevent Billy Clarke’s spot kick from cancelling out Nathan Delfouneso’s first half opener.

Wanderers dominated the first half and created a plethora of chances throughout.

Ian Evatt made just one enforced change from the team that drew 1-1 to league leaders Cambridge United at the weekend with Arthur Gnahoua coming in for the injured Eoin Doyle.

Wanderers started very brightly and had their opponents on the backfoot from the off.

Following some great work by Peter Kioso on the right flank, the ball fell to Andrew Tutte whose 20-yard effort went over the bar.

Moments later, Nathan Delfouneso charged up the field after the Bantams had surrendered possession but his effort failed to trouble Richard O’Donnell who held onto the ball.

Alex Baptiste got in on the attacking act after receiving the ball off Arthur Gnahoua but his powerful volley was charged down by Paudie O’Connor.

Wanderers’ goal certainly had a sense of inevitability about it when Delfouneso grabbed his third strike of the season. The ball hit the cross bar twice before the big striker powered home from just inside the Bantams’ box. Firstly, Antoni Sarcevic’s lob hit the top of the woodwork, before an attempted Elliot Watt clearance again hit the underside.

Bryce Hosannah lost his marker with a deft body swerve but he saw his effort blaze over the cross bar after some tidy possession play by the visitors.

Gnahoua’s direct running had the visitors on the back foot and after the forward got onto the end of a Sarcevic pass, his shot deflected off two Bradford defenders before being cleared.

Callum Cooke spurned a glorious chance to equalise just before the break when Clayton Donaldson’s cross found him just outside the penalty box, but his volley was well off target and glided over the bar for a goal kick.

Gnahoua was felled just outside the 18-yard line deep into time added on at the end of the half. Crawford’s free-kick was well-struck but went just over the bar.

No changes were made by either side during the break.

Crawford spun away from his marker to carve open a chance from distance shortly after the restart but his effort went straight into the arms of Richard O’Donnell.

Harry Brockbank and Sarcevic played a smart one-two on the edge of the box, but the former could only curl his effort high and wide.

Ryan Delaney was unable to direct his header towards goal after latching on to Crawford’s lofted free-kick when Sarcevic was held back by Finn Cousin-Dawson.

Some great work out on the channel by Delfouneso saw Wanderers get into a great position, but the goalscorer’s attempted cross to Sarcevic, who was charging in at the far post, was a touch too heavy.

Crawford should have done better after Delaney burst into the danger area. The midfielder’s curling effort was off-target.

Again, Crawford got into an excellent position to shoot after some great play on the right but his effort proved to be wasteful.

At the other end, Wanderers got out of jail when Hosannah cantered into the box but his effort, whilst under a challenge from Delaney, he hit the side netting.

Evatt made his first change on 64 minutes when Jamie Mascoll came on for Brockbank.

Peter Kioso deflected Connor Wood’s shot from the edge of the box as Bradford enjoyed their best spell of the game.

Delfouneso conceded a penalty when he tripped Anthony O’Connor with 20 minutes to go, but Billy Crellin made a stunning save to deny Billy Clarke from the spot.

The visitors were still in the ascendency in search for an equaliser and Mascoll had to be sharp to turn away the ball for a corner as it was centred.

Wanderers should have put their noses further in front when Crawford received Gnahoua’s pass; however, his first time shot from 15 yards out went narrowly wide of O’Donnell’s left hand post.

Andrew Tutte was replaced by Brandon Comley with 14 minutes to go as Evatt made his second change.

It was a nervy end for Wanderers but they hung on to claim a deserved victory against the Yorkshiremen.

Only saw bits of this when I could on my phone so can't comment on the overall performance but what I got from it was that we - for once - came out on the good side of a game that could have gone either way. Maybe our luck is changing and at least we seem to be competing now when we weren't at the beginning of the season.
Yet again, the dream isn't quite back on yet - but it hasn't been blown out of the water either.
Unbelievably, we're up to 16th and 5 points above the drop zone.
Next game please.

Onwards.

Brockbank is playing wing-back. Not sure if you realised that already, but do think it’s an important distinction to make.

Good result, even though it should have been more comfortable. It’s the first time in years when the players seem to be clicking into a system that’s primary focus isn’t about containing the opposition. The midfielders are night and day from a few weeks ago and it’s really positive to see, half a yard faster, pressing as a unit and when they get the ball the speed of the transitions forward are brilliant - from Crawford especially.

Orient away Saturday, we need to back this up with another win now.

I liked the way Crellin got to his feet immediately after the penalty save, waved away the players' congratulations, and shouted at them to concentrate.

I lost count  of the number of times Crawford blasted the ball into the stands when trying to put the ball in the net.

I think he may have had those elf boots on he sometimes wears.

He could be dyslexic, thought it said EFL boots
