Maybe it was the happiness that football was finally back or maybe it's the truth, but the Bolton Wanderers' defense wasn't that horrific against Burnley F.C. this past Saturday.
Burnley had a slight edge in both possession and corners that made it evident Bolton's defense was pressured (and struggling) throughout most of the match. With the way our defense is playing right now, we can't afford to be pressured because it's how we make easy mistakes that we can't afford and I don't peg us as fit enough to score after we've conceded. Playing Burnley showed that while we look to be the team to score first, none of our players can do it individually. If If anything, we got lucky because Burnley were incapable of finishing on more than one occasion, but we can't build a contending defense, let alone a team, on luck alone.
