Bolton Wanderers v Brentford MOTM - Ben Amos

You sit there and you thump your Bible and you say your prayers and it didn’t get you anywhere. Talk about your Psalms; talk about John 3:16

Bolton Wanderers v Brentford was a strange game.

Bolton looked alright at times. We looked abysmal at times.

One element remained true throughout - we'd be cut adrift if it wasn't for Ben Amos.

The former Manchester United goalkeeper stood no chance with Brentford's opener - that honour fell to Dorian Dervite who furthered his claim to be one of the poorest central defenders in the club's recent history - but his performance throughout was, yet again, bordering on the imperious.

A couple of wayward kicks aside, his handling of crosses and his shot-stopping was without fault, and he saved our asses on more than one occasion.

People talk about Bolton being knackered without Zach Clough - there can be little doubt that we are indebted to our goalkeeper and he is by far our most important player.

I worry about our ability to keep him at the club, given the perilous financial circumstances in which we are living - but for the short term lets just enjoy the league's finest goalkeeper in full flow.
