Who was the Whites' best player in Saturday's testimonial?

The young Arsenal loanee, Wellington Silva, is showing his promise again in a fine display against Motherwell, bagging himself an assist.

He was centre to most attacks Bolton Wanderers had throughout the game often combining well with the midfield utilising little give and go's. He linked up well with fellow Spanish speaker Jose Manuel Casado, until the Spaniard was substituted at half time.

In the first half he could have very easily had a goal himself. He went on a mazy ‘Mavies-esque' run in to the box, beating several players only to see his deflected shot palmed away by a member of the Twardzik clan.

The assist came in the second half as Silva bamboozled his man and fired a great ball across the goal for Emile Heskey to tap in. He could have had more when again he did some excellent work to get the ball to Stephen Dobbie who fired wide from a position you'd expect a goal from.

It's clear Silva is very much going to be an asset for us this year. He finally adds pace, width and skill to the wings that have desperately lacked all three since for many moons
