Wanderers misplaced 2-Zero on the College of Bolton Stadium in opposition to the Exiles after Tristan Abrahams struck twice following half-time.
The outcome leaves the Trotters 22nd within the League Two desk, above Grimsby City and Southend United.
After the match, Bolton boss Ian Evatt spoke to the press and here is a round-up of what he needed to say.
Are there many positives to take out of that?
“There’s not many. Most likely the 5 minutes after they scored the primary one. We confirmed essentially the most vitality and need that we did all day and the we get the aim after which that was disallowed after which the vitality and life was drained out of us once more. The primary 20 minutes we rode our luck with set items, which we knew they have been bodily sturdy from set items.
“Most League Two groups are. We didn’t take care of that effectively sufficient however then we experience that storm and we seemed like we have been taking up the sport. We miss two or three probabilities once more which must be objectives. Usual story, get to half-time and also you’re making an attempt to raise the gamers after which we concede two poor objectives once more.
“For me, we’re not working laborious sufficient. We’re not making our personal luck by working laborious sufficient. We’re missing confidence from poor outcomes, 100%. We have to do extra, however when issues aren’t going proper, it’s a must to roll up your sleeves, it’s a must to win tackles, win second balls, win headers and do the ugly aspect of the sport effectively.
“We’re not doing that effectively sufficient both. Mentally we must be stronger. I believe our mentality’s poor in the intervening time.”
How do you repair that when the boldness is so low?
“I’ll have to choose gamers which are going to indicate me that need to win. Now they may not be technically the most effective gamers for the system or the form or the opposition, but when they provide me 100% need and dedication and work their nuts off then that could be the easiest way ahead in the intervening time.
“We have to cease the rot and finish the run and that’s as it’s. We’re all working laborious. On the coaching pitch we appear to be Actual Madrid, however on a Saturday we’re not performing.
“Final Saturday I used to be happy, it was significantly better. In the present day, it’s again to sq. one and it’s the inconsistencies.
“That is irritating as a coach, matchday to matchday, I don’t know what I’m going to get. We’re a bag of Revels, we’re one minute the espresso Revel, the subsequent minute the Malteser, I don’t know what we’re going to get, I genuinely don’t know what we’re going to get and we’ve got to be extra constant.
“However at first, we’ve got to be mentally more durable and stronger.”
Ideas on the 2 new signings introduced in?
“Clearly we wanted some extra attacking gamers. Lloyd (Isgrove) received the division final 12 months. He’s very gifted and has an excellent relationship with Eoin Doyle by way of assists and we’re hoping they will replicate that this season.
“Arthur (Gnahoua) is a really gifted boy, he can shoot and dribble off each ft, has tempo and energy which we’re in all probability missing on the prime finish of the pitch at occasions so once more they’re another choice for me. We’re nonetheless figuring it out.”
A giant name with Nathan Delfouneso’s disallowed aim?
“To be sincere, I don’t wish to say an excessive amount of and I don’t like making excuses, but it surely’s simply the best way issues are going for us in the intervening time. Soccer has a humorous method typically of punishing you if you’re at your lowest.
“A referee who’s a yard away says no handball. A linesman who’s the other aspect with 10 to 15 our bodies in entrance of him someway sees it and offers handball. It’s irritating. It might have modified the sport utterly, however it’s what it’s and that aspect we’ve got to be higher and do extra.
“Nathan thinks it was a aim. The referee thinks it was a aim who was a yard away and proper in entrance of it. Once more it’s irritating however it’s what it’s. There’s nothing we will do about it now.”
