Bolton 0 City 0

A dire game by all accounts, with a much better showing from ourselves than the home fixture some three weeks ago - and we continue our unbeaten run since the 2-0 defeat.

Most reports I have seen seem to be attempting to outdo each other with descriptions of how dull the game was, with Joey Barton's miss seemingly the only highlight of an otherwise unforgettable encounter.

Still, it is a measure of our progress over the last month that we are now unbeaten in five (including the FA Cup) and we have gone three games unbeaten away from home in the league without conceding a goal - something which would have been unthinkable earlier in the season.

With Bolton's form (particularly at home) this season, I think we have to be happy with a point gained - just glad I was back playing myself and didn't have to endure the game live.

Of course, we now move onto more important matters this Tuesday with the FA Cup replay against Sheffield Wednesday.

Reaction:


"We've got a lot of pace and power at the back and our
change of system playing three centre-halves helped us get a result against a
very good team."
- Steve Wigley.
"We were below par, it wasn't the best of games," but City deserve credit for their defending, they stopped our front three."
- Sam Allardyce.
