    Hope he goes with the same 11. with spearing( if fit)on the bench with long. and same formation. Lots of you have been 'skipping' and rightly so after two fantastic performances, but we need to give Northampton a little respect, they will have had us watched at Gillingham, so i expect them to pack the midfield out and try and stifle us, probably going 4-5-1, with two wide of the five, not getting forward much certainly for the first half. Parky might tweak that to combat it, personally i would leave it till the second half. I think we might need to be patient.

    Zach Clough has put Forest ahead with a clever goal! He´s doing great so far in the Midlands derby!

    Clearly we must win. This will be the first game where the opposityion will concentrate on shackling Morais. How well they do will affect the core not the result.

    Worrying first 30 minutes - too many Northampton corners.

    Only one shot on goal. We need a second threat. If Morais is not able to reproduce his recent performance. We need someone else to create chances

    Too reliant on Morais, now, and no backup option?

    Plan A should have been to use anyone BUT MORAIS. Free up other players. NT FC watching him like a hawk.

    Calm now for the next 5 mins. Other scorelines arent too disastrous.

    If Wanderers are on fire now, why another substitution with Spearing?

    Fix the feed, plonker! You've marked it down as 2-1 to Northampton!

    Edit: Thank you. Thought there was a case of alt-truth going on :D

    Not four but it's been a good afternoon for Bolton. Well done to the team. I'm already looking forward to another win on Tuesday.

    Well done another good result after going a goal down and their last touch of the game has a goal disallowed for offside.

    Matt Taylor was outstanding for them chrimes that cross for their goal was indefensible, but boy oh boy we responded in a manner which suggests we will go the rest of the season unbeaten.Best player on the pitch for me, Darren Pratley.

    I think today really confirms the players attitude is right. It must have been difficult for them today coming home with all that expectation from the last two games, which may be why they made a pretty slow start but boy did they react after going that goal down? A good win against an in form team and 3 more points towards the Championship. It's entirely in our own hands so keep that up and there's no stopping us. For once Morais turned deliverer instead of provider so good on him.

    Very poor today. Made it so hard for themselves. Can't complain about luck at all as were outplayed at times. 2 decisions. Not convinced it was.a penalty and the offside goal couldn't tell. Got to be so much better. Spearings cameo showed how nonsense it was to suggest derik should start ahead of him. 3 points the main thing though.

    Sorry benny I think you are expecting too much, it was a scrap, yes, but to suggest we was outplayed is a nonsense and lucky??, the penalty was certain, and yes their attempt was offside, but we should have had at least one if not two penalties before that one.

    Great result for wanderers admit we looked a little flat at times maybe that was down to the two great performances prior, but great character by the team to come back and win from a goal down. We finally got a penalty and a bit of luck at the end which was long overdue in my opinion.
