Bolton Wanderers ended what has been a bewildering & saddening week with a disappointing 2-1 home defeat against Queens Park Rangers.
A fairly positive-ish twenty minutes or so at the end was overshadowing by a lacklustre performance from the majority of the Wanderers players.
No real intent going forward mixed with poor defending for the goals conceded ensured Bolton lost their second game of the season.
All that being said, two players stood out above the rest.
Firstly, striker Josh Magennis was a presence up front when introduced midway into the second half. Our top goalscorer halved the deficit with a well driven free kick. Thanks to him and fellow substitute Erhun Oztumer, Wanderers almost snatched a point out of the game, when they would have had no right to.
Once again though, the man of the match was the Polish Cafu himself, Paweł Olkowski.
Olkowski proved once again why he’s fast becoming a fan favourite at the UNIBOL. Cool, calm and collected on the ball, Pawel looked a cut above the other players on the pitch.
His willingness to run forward will be crucial going forward this season. Not only that, but he was defensively solid again. It’s no surprise that Pav makes more tackles per game than any other Bolton player.
Let’s hope the Polish Cafu is here to stay for a while.
