MOTM: Bolton Wanderers v Wigan Athletic

As we claimed yet another victory at home under Lennon , a man of the match must be chosen

Gareth Copley

It's no secret that Neil Lennon's favourite player's name starts with Chung and ends in y.

Since his arrival just a few weeks ago he has heaped a mountain of praise on the South Korean, praise which has been justified so far.

Chung-Yong Lee was a key figure in the Bolton Wanderers midfield. He played a brilliant reverse through ball to assist Max Clayton, and he also helped himself to a goal by claiming the responsibility and confidence to take the penalty, the type of confidence he never showed under Dougie Freedman. His cool penalty down the middle was Bolton's third goal of the night.

Craig Davies has been a revelation under Lennon, even putting in extra hours of training.

Again, being the focal point of our attacks for the entire game, he was a constant thorn in the side of Leon Barnett, the two seemed to be having an ever-present wrestling match.

A match in which the Welshman came out victorious, compounded by his header, which saw him leap like a salmon and nod home from close range.

Matt Mills put in another sterling performance and although it wasn't as noticeable as Chungy's or Davies', he still prevented a lot of opportunities coming Wigan Athletic's way.

He, along with Dorian Dervite, put in solid displays and helped us steer off any Wigan pressure.

It's been a long time since we've had such good displays from all MOTM candidates, long may it continue
