Bolton Wanderers 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Yes Zat, it's only natural for you to look scared. - Tom Shaw

Bolton Wanderers were disjointed put in a disheartening performance, and overall left the fans disappointed. That's basically the nice way of putting it in what was a horrible affair between Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday. There would be no nine-goal thriller this time around as it was just one goal that separated the two sides.

Bolton Wanderers (once again) never really got going. Sheffield Wednesday were on the offensive pretty much from the off and the Trotters barely troubled the Owls in the attacking third of the field.

The lone goal of the match came from striker Mamady Sidibe, on loan from Stoke City. The striker, who hadn't scored since the start of the 2010/2011 season, scored from close range on a diving bullet header. Full back Lee Buxton had ample time on the ball and put a cross into the six yard box, with Sidibe powering home from close range.

Bolton forced a few good saves out of goalkeeper Chris Kirkland but it was, on the whole, nothing to write home about as they went on two lose their second game in a row. In fact, in the last five games, Bolton have managed only four points with three losses in that stretch. The team was disorganized and at no point looked comfortable.

Marvin Sordell and Marcos Alonso were inserted as late substitutes into the game and only then did Bolton start to show some attacking impetus and managed to maintain possession. Unfortunately, that possession did not turn into goals.

Dougie Freedman and Bolton Wanderers have a lot of work ahead of them as the transfer window is set to open. Defense and goal-scoring strikers should be on the top of his list. Bolton are back down to 16th place in the table and will welcome Birmingham City to the Reebok on Saturday before traveling to Elland Road to see Leeds United on Tuesday
