WANDERERS (3-4-1-2).


Made saves in the second half that he would have expected to make – but ensured there would be no follow up. His cross claiming was also extremely competent.


Hadn’t been a great day even before the red card. Going through the mill at the moment.


Came in with some big boots to fill and though Clarke-Harris got on the scoresheet, he defended his penalty box heroically for the most part.


When the game was open he struggled against some of Peterborough’s pace on the counter but when asked to defend, he came through impressively.


Wanderers’ best attacking option for the most part. Dropped back to play as an orthodox full-back during the second half.


One of a few players whose possession stats remained respectable, the Welshman covered a lot of ground once the team went down to 10 men.


Not a day he will remember fondly. Uncharacteristically, gave the ball away in some bad areas, including in the build-up to the goal. Booking means he misses Port Vale too.


Bolton’s most effective player for the first hour, or so, and saw more of the ball than anyone else. Looked tired towards the end.


Put himself about and was playing as a secondary full-back for the majority of the second half, all nuance and craft had to be abandoned in a scrappy second half.


Patched himself up to play, which is credit in itself. Wasn’t quite at his waspish best but another one who sacrificed himself for the cause after the break.


After last week’s horror show in the penalty box he was in the right place at the right time to bag his fifth goal of the season. Ran his socks off.

Subs: Nlundulu 7, 64 (for Adeboyejo) – Added energy and purpose.

Bodvarsson 7, 73 (for Charles) – Really had the bit between his teeth.

Morley 90+2 (for Sheehan).

Not used: Hutchinson, Matheson, Khumbeni, Jerome.

Tactics 6.5/10: Ian Evatt’s hand was forced somewhat by availability and though his wide centre-halves struggled against Peterborough’s pace in the first half, the shift to 4-4-1 after Jones’s sending off hobbled that threat. In a similar vein to Derby a few weeks ago, he was able to introduce a couple of strikers off the bench to ‘have a go’ in the last 15 minutes, and it very nearly worked.

Peterborough United (4-2-3-1): Bilokapic; Kioso, Knight, Edwards, Burrows; Kyprianou, Collins; Poku, Mason-Clark, Jade-Jones; Clarke-Harris.

Subs: Randall 69 (for Jade-Jones), Wakeling 86 (for Mason-Clark).

Not used: Katongo, Crichlow, De Havilland, Sturge, Talley.

Referee: Ross Joyce 6/10 – The Jones red card looked to many people to be the right decision but while Joyce looked to stamp out any silly business for the first 45 minutes, he seemed to have a change of heart after the break. Kioso and Collins are lucky boys indeed.
