Martin O'Neill reacted to the 1-1 draw against Bolton saying:
'I think that was a good point - in terms of the way we fought back. We were on the back-foot to begin with and Bolton were geed-up with a new manager coming in. With Nigel (Hokey-Cokey) out through suspension, we re-adjusted accordingly. But things weren't going right in the first-half and I thought we were giving the ball away too easily. We conceded the goal and we were second to the ball for a lot of the first-half, so I decided to make some changes at half-time.'
On the second half he added we deserved the point and mystifyingly thought we could have taken all 3 points. Not quite sure how.
'I thought we weathered whatever was thrown at us in the second-half. Bolton are a difficult team to play against, but we've eventually got something out of the game and I'm pleased with that.'
Gary Megson said after the game he found the decision by the linesman 'strange' adding, 'The linesman has signalled a throw for us, then the referee overruled him but neglected to tell our lads.' And on the game he said 'I am happy with effort from our players, We weren’t as solid in the second-half as we were in the first, but that was expected. But I can’t complain about the commitment shown this afternoon”
He also praised Anelka who is being linked to Manchester United amongst others, “Well, Anelka is in a class of his own. It was a great-free-kick, he did extremely well to curl it in like he did”. Wish we would throw our hat into the ring for Anelka, for a below average Bolton team he has still managed to score 6 goals!
