Stupendous. As stupendous as only the sixth straight win that takes us roaring into a playoff place can be. Are you watching, Wanderers? Scratch that, we know they’re watching – the thought of Wolves and Bolton fans returning from the pub last night, bringing up CEEFAX page 309, cursing loudly, then flicking over to 325 for a terrified glance at the league table was one of the evening’s many joys.
BSAD report: The debutant’s two goals will grab the headlines, and rightly so. But, in truth, he had a curious match. Ironically, his strength also proved to be his weakness. Like Nick Wright, he appears to have a knack of appearing in the penalty area unnoticed at the right moment, something that will certainly guarantee him goals. Unlike Wright, he also appears to be well versed in the art of finishing such opportunities. The problem, therefore, was not in his performance but in his position – as a right winger, he wasn’t available enough in our approach play. That was frustrating, particularly when his moments on the ball were artful and aggressive. Our attacks leaned heavily to the left as a consequence.
