Bolton Draw With Barnsley

2 - 2
Bolton Wanderers

Attendance: 14,138


We all know happened in the match now, every probable emotion was experienced, disappointment when Gary Gardner put Barnsley ahead, various levels of delight when Adam Le Fondre converted that spot-kick, getting even better when Craig Noone looked to have earned us our second away win all season, before Oli McBurnie`s equaliser in injury time left us gutted.

It seemed a scrappy game at times between two teams proving why they were well in the relegation mire.
Both the goals Barnsley scored were poor to concede, we just couldn`t seem to get the ball away for the first, and how McBurnie wasn`t marked for the second, well it was criminal.

On the positives though, there appeared to be a bit more fight, the midfield performances were better, with Henry and Pratley playing together in the middle, and we didn`t lose. It does mean we`re relying on Barnsley to lose their game in hand, but if we had lost, I`d have seen no way back to be honest. We`ve still something to hold onto.

"We said to the lads at half-time 'come on, we`ve got to show the courage to play.` We really took the game to them, we grew in belief and the Barnsley lads were cramping up because we really ran all over them," said Phil Parkinson after the game.
