Wigan Athletic v Bolton Wanderers

The two Lancashire clubs split the points at the DW Stadium.  If only they were so gregarious with the meat pies and sausage rolls...

This was probably a fair result.  Wigan's goal was offside, but they did have a few other opportunities.  Bolton on the other hand barely sent in any shots, when you would think the instruction going out on to the pitch would have been to shoot early and often, from all distances and angles, to test the shaky and dropped in August goalkeeper Chris Kirkland.  I would say he played a good game, but he didn't, he just wasn't tested at all.

With the exception of one or two wild tries from Martin Petrov, none of the Bolton midfielders made any effort to have a shot at goal from outside the box.  And we just weren't getting any space inside the box.

Hugo Rodallega looked dangerous at times for Wigan, but he didn't appear to be strong enough physically to cope with Gary Cahill and Zat Knight in defense.  Stuart Holden had another great game, he is quickly becoming one of the most impressive young players in the Premier League.

Bolton still have only one loss this season, and their away form has been very solid, but they need to start turning some draws into wins if they are going to climb up the table.
