Wanderers bid farewell to League Two in style with a thumping win at Crawley.

Skipper Antoni Sarcevic led the way with Dapo Afolayan, Eoin Doyle and Lloyd Isgrove’s goals ensuring it will be League One football next year at the UniBol.

On day where Wanderers really found their form under pressure, who was your man of the match?

See if you agree with the ratings below.

Matt Gilks 7

In truth had little to do as Wanderers dominated proceedings. Dealt with what he had to and his furious reaction to late goal showed exactly why he’s made such a difference since dusting off the gloves.

Gethin Jones 8

Had to do some defending early doors but then bombed on down the right for fun. Laid the second goal on a plate for Dapo Afolayan and was denied one of his own by a sharp save.

Ricardo Santos 6.5

One fabulous 50-yard pass for Lloyd Isgrove should have brought a goal or a penalty. The big man was not at his best in the second half but what a season he’s had. Will be a big player in League One.

Alex Baptiste 7.5

Such was Wanderers’ dominance early on the veteran defender popped up on the left wing at one point. As solid as he has been in recent weeks when he has made such a difference to the Whites’ fortunes.

Declan John 7

Like Jones enjoyed plenty of space down the flanks, his biggest contribution being pass in behind for Sarcevic’s opening goal that got things going. Hopefully that is not his last outing for Bolton.

MJ Williams 7.5

Not a game where the holding midfield man was overly stretched, but did what he does and mopped up when needed and sent Wanderers heading in the right direction.

George Thomason 8

Back in for the injured Kieran Lee and produced a performance full of energy. Used the ball well too and drew first yellow card for George Francomb when he looked to break clear in the first half.

Antoni Sarcevic 9

Captain fantastic rose to the occasion on Wanderers’ big day.  Took his goal with aplomb to set the tone for the whole afternoon. All action and even had a hand in Eoin Doyle’s goal with a neat pass.

Lloyd Isgrove 8.5

A constant threat and should arguably have had his goal in the first half but a heavy touch let him down when in on goal. Could have had a penalty before eventually getting on scoresheet when nicking the ball back and finishing emphatically.

Dapo Afolayan 9

And finally, the West Ham loan star has his first Whites goal. That was just part of his story at Crawley though as he tormented the hosts, being fouled for Francomb’s second yellow card before providing the cross for Doyle’s goal.

Eoin Doyle 8

He ends the campaign with 19 goals having had one ruled out for offside in the first half before getting Wanderers’ third after the break. A real leader who is worth so much more than his goals.
