A Season in Statistics Player-By-Player: Lawrie Wilson

He does have lovely hair

Another Neil Lennon summer recruit, Lawrie Wilson began life at Bolton Wanderers fairly well before being farmed out to League One on loan and regained his right-back berth upon his return to the Macron.

Appearances - 12 (1 as a sub)

Wilson racked up 999 minutes as a Bolton player this season and predominantly looked like our best right-back, before being made the scapegoat for the 4-1 defeat at Huddersfield.

He has again looked decent since his return from loan at Peterborough, scoring his only goal for the club in the 2-2 home draw with Ipswich Town.

Goals Conceded - 15 (1.15 per game)

The figure of 1.15 goals conceded per game played gives Wilson the best defensive record of any Bolton defender to have played more than three games this season. Hardly something to shout about though.

Review

Pass completion rate - 75.8%, the second best passing record of all Bolton defenders - only bettered by Francesco Pisano

Goals - 1, a screamer as Bolton fought back against Ipswich

Assists - 1

Bookings - 2

Red cards - 0

Overall Season Performance - C

Wilson was unlucky to lose his place following the Huddersfield debacle, and was inexplicably cut from the first team squad for months by Lennon. I think he offers plenty of attacking threat down the right and is decent enough defensively, while he also has a decent cross that could cause problems for League One defences - especially if Gary Madine can sort himself out. Wilson should be our first choice right-back next season.
