Bolton 3-2 Blades
“a solid performance against a team who are our equivalent.”
“Was pretty nrevous right through this. I get the feeling we’re a bit paranoid about giving free kicks away near our box because we don’t (Spearing apart) seem to go in to tackle, preferring to show them here there and everywhere. In contrast, their defenders hit on us all over the place. Better finishers might also have done for us today because their approach play and passing were very good all game, Lavery in particular. That said, the ref let a throw be taken thirty yards too far forward ..and they scored their first. Their second was a bit badly defended by us. On the plus side we had a few well worked chances that a good performance by their keeper kept from being a big score. For me, Wheater’s shot looked over the line and maybe Madine should have done a bit better from Clough’s set up. Madine’s goal was well taken and Sammi’s shot a corker.
Sheffield look to be worthy of their league position and we’ll have to be on our toes playing them. Good result and well done the Whites”
“Very good game. They were better in possession we always seemed to have just that little extra quality at either end where it counts.
Sat on a two goal lead second half and it nearly cost us. Have to stop doing that. We will be ok against most sides in this league but Sheff Utd are a class above and moved the ball quickly and eventually we were chasing shadows.”
“Thought we were the better team until we went 2 up! We gave the ball away so much after that, only Derik coming on looked composed. Should of been more comfortable, but fair feck to yooonyted not many will score twice against us.”
“I suspect week in week out Sheffield Utd will play ‘better’ than us but we have that knack of grinding out results. Fine lines. We could suffer with the wrong injury or loss of form or whatever. But right now we look like we have that beautiful knack of winning irrespective of how we play. Which is golden. I hope we hold onto it for as long as possible.”
“A rugby score by Parky’s BWFC standards!!
Entertaining game. I think we just about deserved it..”
“Really enjoyed that. Two good teams at it. I felt 3-2 flattered them a bit”
