Five unbeaten, off the bottom of the table and only 14 points off the playoffs.

Bolton Wanderers took the lead through Gary Madine on 35 minutes after Norwich City had been dominating play. Darren Pratley played a low cross across goal and Madine hit home at the far post.

Five minutes later Adam Armstrong makes it two scoring off the post after a Madine knock down. He has recieved criticism of late, but hopefully this goal can give him a platform to kick on.

The Whites managed to hold out in the second half until the 94 minute when Josh Murphy hit home at an acute angle. It was though far too little too late as Bolton picked up an all important win after three draws on the trot.

We are still one of the favourites for the drop, and rightly so. But at least we are now putting in performances and picking up the results which will allow is to make a fight of it. We go into an international break now in a much better position than the last one.

Phil Parkinson and the team will no doubt use that time to work on the lingering defects, after a well earned break and probably a good old fashioned piss up.
