Burton Albion ran out 1-0 winners in the first ever league meeting between the two clubs. Bolton Wanderers started the brightest but never looked like coming back once going 1-0 down.

This was a game that Bolton simply had to win at home against another struggling side. Not winning leaves Bolton in a terrible position with difficult games against Cardiff City, Middlesborough and Sheffield United coming up over the Christmas period.

It would seem quite possible that by the early new year we will be cut adrift once more. Make no mistake the revival is over and we will need to pick up some inconceivable results to stay in touch.

We are not even half way through the season but we really do now need some other teams to do us a favour

League One here we come, it will be good to see you again old friend, and to not have to play Wigan Athletic for another year.
