WANDERERS are unlikely to appeal Gethin Jones’s red card against Peterborough United.

Ian Evatt said after Saturday’s 1-1 draw that he would review footage of he incident, which saw Bolton’s vice-captain bring down Posh winger Ricky Jade-Jones, before making his decision on presenting a case to the Football Association.

Jones is eligible to play against Manchester United’s Under-21s in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night but is now expected to miss Saturday’s game at Port Vale.

Evatt had claimed the foul had only been worth a yellow card after the game but asked about the possibility of an appeal, he added: “I need to have a really good look at it from different angles and different perspectives, you tend not to win these things even though we have had some luck in the past.

“For me, it looked a yellow card live. Before the reaction and post the reaction it wasn’t so. We’ll see.”

After falling behind in the 42nd minute to Jonson Clarke-Harris’s close-range header Wanderers drew level within 60 seconds when Victor Adeboyejo swept home a spill from Peterborough’s keeper Nicholas Bilokapic.

“It was a really good move,” Evatt said. “It was intricate, we penetrated down the right side and I was really pleased for Victor to get the goal after last week with one or two we didn’t quite take, so, yes, I thought it would have ended up a really good game and I was hopeful we would come out on the right side of it but when that happened, and with everything else that is happening with the injuries, it is a really good draw.”

Evatt was also please with the impact that second-half subs Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Dan Nlundulu had on the game.

“That is something we have spoken about at length,” he said. “People have to start the game tuned in whether they are starting or coming on as what we call finishers and not substitutes. We haven’t had an impact as we have in previous seasons with substitutions and today I thought Jon and Dan in particular were outstanding. They got us up the pitch, they were aggressive, they were physical, they showed moments of quality.

“The plan was to stay in the game as long as we could in the second half because we couldn’t open up too soon against the type of team that Peterborough are, then wait for a moment. We didn’t quite get that moment but we are delighted with a point.”
