Bolton 2 Millwall 0, Championship Game 37, 14/3/15 att: 14,719 (away 355)


The team is revealed. This has had everybody guessing for a few days and we started with a 4-4-2

Neil Harris made some team changes. Paris Cowan-Hall was back from injury and had a place on the bench. Stefan Maierhofer was also warming the bench and that's where he stayed. Lee Gregory was back in the starting eleven with Aiden O'Brien, Jimmy Abdou and Ed Upson. These joined the rest of the players that were left who started against Norwich and the stage was set.
Neil Harris's pre match Churchillian speech 'We are going to have a right good go at this, this being the ten games to play before the season ends was aimed at the players and at us the supporters to raise our spirits. A fine speech before we play game number one but it seem to have no effect as we succumb to a early goal and conceded another before the first half was up.

The second half and we play better but still missed chances. Lee Gregory once again missed a chance and Aiden O'Brien should have buried his but alas nothing to show for a much improved second half.
We did improve as we only got beat 2-0 and not the usual 3 or 4 and there was signs second half that if we keep it tight we may get something from the Brighton game this Tuesday night. The travelling Wall stayed to the end and afforded a clap to the players as they left the pitch, now that's a positive.
