Bolton Wanderers 1-1 draw with Leeds United was not without incident.

The red card and penalty awarded against Prince aside, a serious of dubious refereering decisions saw the Yorkshire losers handed an advantage that they barely deserved.

Wanderers fought hard but suffered from a lack of quality going forward.

That said, Spanish left-back Jose Manuel Casado was superb. He ensured that Leeds had absolutely no joy going forward down the right flank with a determined performance that showed both strength and guts, and was a sight to behold.

I would like him to offer a bit more in an attacking capacity, and in fact when Dean Moxey returns I would like to see the former Almeria man played in a more advanced position where his comfortable on-the-ball skillz are complemented by his ability to cross a ball.

He doesn't fuck around either, offering out shithouse Chris Wood in the first half with a firm but forceful challenge, which was followed up by a huge 'fuck you' to the big New Zealand forward. Good on him.

An encouraging start to his Bolton Wanderers career.
