Match Report: Bournemouth v Bolton

chill, I got this - Matthew Lewis

A win!

So it ended up that the ten thousand mile hike to Mordor with naught but a gay bloke from Bolton, a ginger dwarf, a woodland elf, a lapsed King of Men, four hobbits including Hetty Wainthrop's assistant and Sean Bean yielded another three points for the Super Whites following a hard-fought 2-0 win against Bournemouth.

David Ngog put the lads ahead at half-time with a neat finish having rounded on-loan Derby keeper Lee Camp in the 37th minute of a tough game at Dean Court in front of 10,015 fans including a magnificent away following of nigh on a thousand traveling Whites.

As we all know, Wanderers' form thus far has been nowt short of dire, but this win made it six undefeated, and in our position you either choose to find your glass half full, or you take yourself to the top of Mount Chiliad and jump off sans parachute.

Dougie Freedman chose to go with the same eleven from the previous week's draw against Ipswich Town, a decision which was met with incredulity amongst the internet thought police, but lo and behold it turns out that he really does know what he is doing!

Bournemouth enjoyed long periods of dominance in terms of possession, but at the end of the day it was the mighty Bolton Wanderers who came away with the three points, secured in injury time by the left peg of Jermaine Beckford on the break - finishing neatly with the aid of a deflection from the Bournemouth man.

Encouraging performances from Matt Mills and a resurgent Chung-Yong Lee added to the positives taken from the game.

Wanderers are now in 19th position,  a mere 10 points from the Play Offs. We're not out of the picture by a long shot. As someone wise once said, it's a marathon not a sprint, and we're just doing up our laces.

Videos and photos from the game show the Wanderers fans in fine voice - I don't think it can be a coincidence that we are seemingly flourishing away from home turf and from the negativity that seems to come so naturally to a  Reebok crowd. Those who made the journey to the South Coast this weekend are true heroes, warriors to a man. Even fat Frank.

Onward and upward now for the lads, who face Millwall at home this coming Saturday.
