Excellent stuff! Plus the pie-munching barstewards that nicked our training ground are relegated. All I could hope for now is for rovers to go with them and what began as a survival exercise could end as the best season in ages.

Report: Bolton 3-0 Peterborough United


IN BRIEF


Bolton Wanderers will play Sky Bet Championship football next season after easing to a convincing 3-0 victory over Peterborough United on Sunday lunchtime and securing second place in the process.

The deadlock was broken halfway through the first period, with Jem Karacan coolly guiding the ball home from close range and it was two soon after the restart as David Wheater headed the ball past Luke McGee.

It was three with 14 minutes remaining too, with Adam Le Fondre getting in on the action with a drilled effort - the icing on the cake of what was an afternoon to remember for all associated with Bolton Wanderers Football Club

TEAM NEWS

Wanderers were unchanged from the side who started against Port Vale eight days ago, with Jay Spearing retaining the captaincy as Darren Pratley returned to the matchday 18.

FIRST HALF

The game got underway at a sun-soaked Macron Stadium and it was clear to see from the outset that Wanderers were up for the fight.

The visitors were under pressure from the outset, with Bolton looking to get an early foothold in the clash and Gary Madine causing problems for the Posh.

Jem Karacan meanwhile saw a 20-yard half-volley fly narrowly wide of the upright with 11 minutes on the clock.

It was very much one-way traffic in the clash, with Mark Howard virtually a spectator for the opening quarter-hour.

On the 17th minute of the game however, a round of applause went up around Macron Stadium in honour of Ivan Klasnic who was present.

During that minute meanwhile, Madine saw his drive from a corner smothered by Luke McGee.

With the first period halfway through however, the deadlock was broken and it was Karacan who steered his volley home from five yards out following a beautiful cross into the area from Dorian Dervite.

No more than Bolton deserved given their dominance, it was one greeted with the loudest of roars from the Macron faithful.

Wanderers continued their pressure, with Dervite even coming close himself after finding himself in unfamiliar territory in Peterborough’s 18-yard box, only to be dispossessed at the crucial moment.

On a rare foray into Bolton territory however, Tom Nichols looked set to pull Boro level after finding the ball at his feet with just Howard to beat, but a superb sliding tackle from Mark Beevers at the death ensured that the Whites’ lead was preserved.

Another last ditch block meanwhile saw the scoreline remain in Bolton’s favour, with Wheater a rock at the back to keep another Nichols effort out.

Up the other end, Madine was denied only by the legs of McGee while Le Fondre spurned a glorious opportunity when failing to connect with the ball just a matter of yards out.

Come the half time whistle however, Bolton’s lead was just the one goal.

SECOND HALF

With no changes for either side at the break, proceedings got back underway at Macron Stadium.

And it was the visitors were looked lively early on, with Chris Forrester’s long range drive straight down the throat of Howard.

The tempo of the game was fairly relaxed, with Bolton easily dealing with anything coming their way from the visitors.

And with the second half seven minutes old, their lead was doubled as Wheater forced a header home from close range after the ball had been bouncing around in the penalty area.

A sucker punch for the visitors, it was just the tonic needed for Wanderers with Macron Stadium and had the Whites oozing with confidence on the ball thereafter.

Not content with just the two however, Bolton continued to pen Peterborough into their own area as the clock ran down.

Beevers almost had a goal too, with McGee somehow keeping his thunderous strike out of the net.

Wanderers just kept on going though and were eventually rewarded with a third as following some superb build-up play by Vela, Le Fondre drilled home past a helpless McGee.

It was party time at Macron Stadium as the game entered its final ten minutes, with the Bolton faithful in superb voice while the remainder of the game passed without much action of note.

Come the final whistle however, it mattered not with Wanderers officially a Sky Bet Championship outfit once again!

Suddenly the world's a better place!

I don't think any of us thought automatic promotion was a possibility,  when we started this season back in August 2016.

KA and Parky have done a great job together.

Fantastic achievement considering what state we were in at the end of last season.

Recognition must be given to Anderson and Parkinson for what they have achieved - particularly with the ST massively trying to fuck Anderson by toadying to the Football League and backing Holdsworth against him most of the season.

Parkinson may not be the best manager in the world but he's done extremely well in a difficult season with such constraints placed upon the club.

We are not out of the woods yet by being back in the Championship and will face many difficulties yet to come - particularly Holdsworth's BluMarble loan debacle but at least things are beginning to look brighter for us.

Let us enjoy the moment for now and look forward to the challenges we will face next season!

Good performance considering the pressure. Peterborough had a good spell before half-time but the second half was one way traffic.

The defence was again outstanding, as was Madine to be fair.

Once again some Bolton fans spoiled the day though, what sort of bellend runs on the pitch before the end of the game? The club seemed to let the Port Vale pitch invasion go without comment, but they should definitely make examples of the hundred or so twats that ran on before the ref had blown for full-time.

Wow! At the beginning of the season did anyone honestly think we would achieve automatic promotion? And we finished in style.

Now we can all start worrying about next season.

It'll be long ball shite next season. We'll probably tempt Emile Heskey out of retirement.

Well done everyone a really enjoyable day and never really in any doubt, the nobs who ran on before the whistle, were at the south end, so not regulars just glory chasers. Better than we could ever hope for and hopefully a very interesting summer. Thanks to all at Nuts another good year of banter.

A remarkably stress free afternoon and not at all what I was expecting. Considering the state the club was in at the beginning of the season big congratulations and thanks go out to Anderson,Parky and the players. I was especially impressed with Josh Vela who stayed out on the pitch on his own, minus his shirt, celebrating with the fans and went out of his way to give everybody who was interested the chance to take a photo of him celebrating with them.
All sorts of questions need answering before the start of next season but just for now I'll sup the 8 cans of Beck's Lager I've just purchased and enjoy the day.
Many thanks to all concerned who have run and maintained this excellent site throughout the season and here's looking forward to season 2017/18 on Nuts (although somebody could perhaps have a quiet word in KP's ear about steering clear of the music threads). Laughing

Well done to all concerned. I never had any doubt, as the season wound down, that we would earn automatic promotion. Three games ago, I said we would all be laughing at how worried we were after we won the next two games to comfortably qualify, and we have.

Happy Wanderer in Jamaica today, was up before 4am (couple of hours before kickoff) with my Wanderers shirt at the ready willing the lads on to success.

Cheers, all - looking forward to the moving and shaking that will happen over the summer, and the rumours of moneyed consortiums interested in the Whites, and the changes we could make to our squad for a go at the Championship with some investment, will undoubtedly make for some good conversation. 

WE'RE GOING UP!

Far better finish to the season than anyone could have expected. Parky got it spot on today and it would be hard to pick out any player who didn't play their part.
Fantastic end to a tough season. Thanks to all for making Nuts such a good site to visit- the mods for being generous, the contributors for contributions ( even that sad old trout, Nat is forgiven today)) and especially to Karly for doing the radio thing.

I hope that there's plenty of activity over the summer discussing the new signings that we'll need and Parkys decisions on who he's going to offload

And finally-good luck Manda on June 8th- hope you make it into the House!

Did it in style in the end, which is most unlike us. great season, enjoyed getting to a few new grounds but seen enough of division 1 for now. Hopefully we can finish mid table and steady the ship next year, although for most that was the aim this season so who knows.  :footy:

The name of the game next season is "investment."  First is what Ken Anderson can bring in to help us out of the financial crises of the past year (and the current dispute with DeanO and the loan company)... the second is what we can do with the investment in terms of quality players who can be signed to deals that make sense. 

When asked on Sky television today about paying for the celebration tonight, Anderson said, "my pockets are empty."  Well, that may be true, but hopefully he will bring in some investors to help right the ship. 

Parky may not be the best tactician in the world, but he certainly brought in some players who helped us get back up on the first try... Beevers was exceptional and for a team which leaked goals one season ago, we became the top defensive team with Beevers and Wheater.  Then when he sold Clough, he somehow got Morais and ALF, who changed the course of our year in purgatory.  So bravo on some of those choices, and now good luck in getting new investors and using that investment money wisely.
