Bolton Wanderers claimed their first win of 2019 with a 1-0 win against Birmingham City at St Andrews.

It might not have been liquid football at times, but Wanderers were effective up front and at the back.

There were a few man of the match worthy displays.

Firstly, Remi Matthews made a couple of stunning saves and fully deserved his clean sheet. The save to deny Che Adams (who had scored a hat trick in the previous game) deep into stoppage time was sublime.

The return of Mark Beevers also brought stability to the back three that was missed during the dismal performance against Preston.

Callum Connolly scored a great header to ensure Wanderers took home all three points, but i’m going to award the Man of the Match to Clayton Donaldson.

In my opinion, last nights game was the best all round performance we’ve seen from Clayton Donaldson this season.

Against his former side, Donaldson upped his game.

Playing alongside Josh Magennis, the pair worked tirelessly and harried the Birmingham defenders until the final whistle blew.

Hopefully the pair can continue to play together - as Wanderers seem to look a better side with two strikers up front.
