WANDERERS (3-5-2).


Not really stretched by the efforts Orient did get on target and not at fault for the goal by any stretch. Struggled to get the game moving at his normal pace, though.


Miles off. Usually quite reliable on the ball but everything he touched seemed to miss its intended target and he will want to put this one behind him quickly.


Whether he picked up a little niggle in the first half is unclear, what is beyond question is that he was second best to Agyei on the day.


Back at centre-half and saw more of the ball than most but another who just couldn’t find the target with enough of his passes.


Missed a big chance at the end – and really struggled to get involved before that. Needs to push through this dip in form.


Given a laughable booking early on and didn’t really make a dent on the match after that. Even he failed to return decent passing figures.


Chalk and cheese compared with his midweek display against Luton Town. His ball for Charles and Dacres-Cogley’s chance were the only things that went right.


Only touched the ball 15 times and for someone usually right in the middle of the action, he was a strangely peripheral figure.


Struggled against Forde on his full league debut and did little to suggest he can permanently displace Williams on the left.


Been Wanderers’ saviour so often but his two misses spread through the team like a virus. Just couldn’t keep the ball.


Nothing would stick and though he was part of Bolton’s best move of the first half he failed to get anywhere near what he had against Luton.

Subs: Jerome 5, 58 (for Adeboyejo) – Asked slightly more than Charles and Adeboyejo.

Bodvarsson 5, 58 (for Charles) – Like Jerome, marginally more effective.

Morley 5, 58 (for Sheehan) – Added a bit of energy but couldn’t find the magic.

Maghoma 4, 71 (for Dempsey) – Hardly made a dent.

Williams 4, 71 (for Ashworth) – Tried to create something with the long throw.

Not used: Coleman, Matheson.

MAN OF THE MATCH – Nathan Baxter.

Probably more accurate to say he was the ‘least bad’. Didn’t do a lot wrong, and in that he was an exception.

MOAN OF THE MATCH – How long have you got? Conditions might not have favoured possession football but Bolton got none of the basic things right to give themselves a chance in the game.

MAGIC MOMENT – Darren Pratley running across to the Wanderers fans to lay a wreath in tribute to Iain Purslow before kick-off. A classy touch from Leyton Orient and the former Bolton skipper.

Leyton Orient (4-2-3-1): Brynn; Galbraith, Beckles, Happe, Sweeney; Brown, El-Mizouni; Forde, Sanders, Archibald; Agyei.

Subs: Pratley 66 (for Brown), Sotiriou 70 (for Sanders), Moncur 87 (for Agyei).

Not used: Byrne, Turns, Pigott, Cooper.

Referee: Alex Chilowicz – 5/10. Not culpable in the slightest for Wanderers’ underperformance but a referee that just lacked any empathy for what was going on around him. Contributed to a poor match.
