“I am sure like me many of you are very disappointed in yesterday’s result at Molineux and like me are struggling to come to terms with it. All l can think of at this moment is it’s probably a case of the least said about the performance the better.” said Bolton Chairman Ken Anderson after his side crashed to a 5-1 defeat at League leaders Wolves at the weekend.
Two early goals from the home side made it a difficult afternoon for Wanderers who never got into their stride with Will Buckley’s first goal for the club the only consolation.
Manager Phil Parkinson adding that:
“We have to put this defeat into perspective. They are by far the best team in this division, they have spent 15 million pounds on one midfielder and they have other Premier League standard players in the team. Although we could have done better you have to put it into context as well.”
