Marc Iles gives his verdict on a hard-earned point for Phil Parkinson's side.
Made an important early save from James McClean, without which it might have been a very different afternoon.
Another very encouraging performance at right-back. Tested early on by McClean but eventually won the battle and put in some good crosses.
Won plenty in the air and got his positioning right, when needed. But it was a much more comfortable game than he could have expected.
Beevers’ performances have definitely gone up a notch in the last couple of games and here he coped admirably with Benik Afobe.
Much more like it from the Birmingham City loanee, who came in for the injured Andy Taylor. Gutsy display, given what he was up against.
No frills, just nice and tidy from the Irishman. Gives Williams a bit more security to push on with the ball.
Rattled into tackles like his life depended on it but needs to improve his use of the ball at times. There’s a lot to like about the Everton youngster.
Asked to play a wider role than he did against Rotherham, and once Wanderers got going he combined well with Lowe. Maybe a little lucky with a second-half trip on McClean moments after getting booked.
Swashbuckling stuff from the midfielder, who deserved his standing ovation from the Wanderers fans. Can he keep his place in the side, though?
Not involved quite as much as he or Wanderers would have liked but tidy enough when he got the ball. Didn’t get a sight of goal, unfortunately.
Bucketloads of effort, and signs he is tuning in to life in the Championship. A goal would have capped things off – but it’s coming.
