|Town now well on top|
at 20:35 25 Jan 2022
after an awkward first 10 minutes of typical lower league pinball. The AFC offer very little beyond a few early soft free kicks conceded in dangerous positions & hard work. They drop back a long way when Town get the ball so hard to break down, not helped by generally poor deliveries into the box. Town should win this.
|Yet another game which shows why Town are in mid table|

Playing another mid table team & while we want to play football, we can't really cope with Accrington's aggressive press. They look the team more likely to create chances or score. Not McKenna's fault, or if it's down to the squad or coaching, but he has much work to do if Town are to be realistic promotion challengers next season.
|Well, that was b____ awful, wasn't it?|

Or, just like many Town performances under Cook & Lambert. After a promising first 10 minutes, Town retreated into their shell & offered little threat against a side who'd lost their last 4 games & hadn't won a League game for 2 months. McKenna has much work to do & the idea that he could wave a magic wand over the Town squad was fanciful.
|Good start by Town, but deteriorated|

Right on the front foot early on, wining the loose balls & always looking to move the ball quickly. However, Bolton gradually got a foothold in the game & we're now playing more like we did under Cook & Lambert, moving the ball sideways & too slowly. In the last 20 minutes, Bolton have looked far more likely to score.
Some of Town's passing has been sloppy & the less said about Evans's delivery from set pieces, the better. Some words needed at half time.
|Town are now running on infinite improbability drive|

and Ashton has turned the risk amplifier up to 11. I wish McKenna well and while there' s a hope that he might turn out to be the next Jose Mourinho & relief that we haven't appointed Neil Harris or Neil Warnock, this is a hugely risky appointment.
