a great result and from listening on the radio it sounded fairly comfortable. Beevers and Wheater are the best centre half pairing we've had for years, we just need to find a striker from somewhere so we can really push on

Max Clayton played for 60 mins on Monday night for the U23's and converted a penalty, with Clough, Henry Ameobi etc we may even have players to get the best out of him

Is it coincidence that 4 wins and 4 clean sheets coincides with Buxton's injury and Wilson coming in, Taylor seems to be settling well on the other flank. I hope Thorpe's injury isn't serious because he seems to be decent in front of the back 4.

Two great goals. Amoebi looked shocked when he attempted the shot and even more gobsmacked when it flew in the top corner. We didn't dominate the game but we've got to be pleased with the result. Sheff U look a different proposition than when we played them and it looks like they'll be in the mix for an automatic promotion slot along with us, Bradford and Scunny so I suspect it's going to be a long season. Delighted we won and kept a bit of momentum going.

Report: Millwall 0-2 Bolton

Bolton Wanderers made it four wins and four clean sheets on the spin as goals in each half from Sammy Ameobi and David Wheater sealed victory against Millwall at the New Den.

Phil Parkinson’s men continued their fine run of form to embolden their pursuit of automatic promotion.

It was a polished display from the men in yellow who showed a solidity in defence and finesse in their finishing.

Both goals were of the highest which sent the small but vociferous travelling battalion of Wanderers fans back up north in great spirits.

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers remained unchanged from the team that enjoyed the 2-0 derby day victory against Oldham Athletic at the weekend.

Former Lions’ defender Mark Beevers lined up against his former club for the first time since making the summer switch from the New Den, while Liam Trotter and James Henry were on the bench, again returning to their former club.

FIRST HALF

A timely intervention from David Wheater prevented Millwall from opening the scoring with barely a minute gone after Ben Thompson got behind the Wanderers defence.

The visitors responded immediately and some neat link-up play between Sammy Ameobi and Lawrie Wilson resulted in a corner.

Millwall failed to sufficiently clear their lines and the ball fell to Ameobi, courtesy of a Jay Spearing assist, who unleashed a stunning 25 yard left footer into the top corner. It was the on-loan forward’s second goal in Wanderers’ colours and arguably a goal of the season contender. Jordan Archer simply had no chance!

A lapse in concentration – moments after Zach Clough was shown a yellow card for dissent – almost let in Steve Morison with a bullet header, but Mark Howard remained alert to fend away danger.

Wanderers suffered a blow when Tom Thorpe hobbled off after 27 minutes. The midfielder looked to be in agony as he was replaced by Derik Osede.

Phil Parkinson’s men were beginning to regain their composure and some smart playing involving Madine and Clough resulted in the latter forcing Archer into a fine save.

Wanderers finished the half in the ascendancy and looked great value for their lead.

SECOND HALF

Keeping their shape well, Wanderers controlled the early stages of the second half and looked solid at the back.

Clough’s pace and trickery were a constant menace and he looked a threat every time he ventured into the Lion’s den.

However, his free kick just on the hour mark from 25 yards lacked the accuracy he enjoyed in Saturday’s victory.

The travelling band of Wanderers fans who made the very long journey down from BL6 were noisy throughout and showed their immense support, often out singing their London opponents.

The hosts’ frustration at not providing any penetration resulted in Williams skewing his powerful 35-yard drive well wide of Howard’s right hand post.

The home supporters sprang into life when Derik concede a foul near the corner flag. However, the dead ball was glanced over the Wanderers crossbar, which prompted sounds of frustration from the Lions’ faithful.

Millwall were getting back into the contest slowly, but without any end product. Dogged defending ensured Howard was left untroubled.

Henry came on for Ameobi who wasn’t as effective as he had been during the first hour and the former Millwall wideman was given a less than rapturous welcome.

Lions’ manager Neil Harris made his final changes of the match when he brought on Shane Ferguson and David Worrall for Joe Martin and the impressive Fred Onyedinma.

But Wanderers had the last laugh when Wheater drilled home his first of the season from the edge of the box to double his team’s lead and seal the three points.

Good job lads.

My only concern is that we seem not to be able to hold on to the ball for long periods of the game. However the BBC says we had 51% possession. Didn't sound like it on the radio.

But I'll take it... a win is a win....... now push on.

All contributory factors, WGO, but the main difference, I think, is the non-selection of Trotter, who contributes virtually nothing each game and whose lack of effort wrecks team spirit.

We definitely had more possession. I'm surprised they're saying it was only 51% tbh. We had the better of the first half and completely dominated the first 20 mins of the second.

I agree Trotter virtual made us a 10 man team, also something seems to have changed in the attitude of Vela. so two pluses in what was a poor midfield.

They seem to be forgetting the jitters they were plagued with, letting in goals in last minute of the game, now. This away win will have boosted their confidence more. They kept a clean sheet and scored twice. Well done Parky.

Claiming the BBC were wrong because you "saw" it on the radio needs no comment.

That was my point genius. You can't tell who has possession from the radio.

No radio commentary gives you possession, half the time they're talking about the game rather than telling you who has the ball.

Embarrassing that I have to put you right on such an obvious thing.

What’s a transcendental?
It’s the juggler on the radio.
The juggler on the radio?
There’s a juggler on the radio. He sounds exactly the same as if there’s no juggler. There’s lots of people listening to the radio and some are saying, “I believe in the juggler.” and some are saying, “There is no juggler.” and there’s a few philosopher types saying, “How is a juggler you can’t see hear, see, smell, or touch different from no juggler?” but there’s nothing any of these people can tell each other about the existence or the non-existence of the juggler!
So, how do you know there’s a juggler?
I heard him on the radio.
There’s a juggler then ….

The two bozo's on it want slapping and it's the only choice for commentary unfortunately.

Tony Kelly needs to realise that we are not a big club anymore and that we are not being broadcast all over the world and just in little Bolton.

In fairness out of the 2 TK is the one I can stand, I love his passion and his bias. He doesn't even pretend to have any impartiality.
