“We’ll look at that as one that got away, especially considering the amount of chances we had and how well we played for all but fifteen minutes of the game," said the Gaffer.


“But decisions change games. The referee has made the decision to give them the penalty which gets them back in it. Then at the end, he doesn’t give us the penalty for the incident involving Mark Hudson. If he’s given Bolton their penalty for what he deemed to be a foul, then he has to give us the penalty too. The lad N’Gog went down very easily for Bolton’s penalty decision and was falling before the contact was made. As for the decision that didn’t go our way, well Warnock has taken Hudson clean out. How the referee hasn’t seen that I’ll never know.


“I’m very proud of my team, regardless of the result though. They’ve performed very well against a team who have come down from the Premier League and have a vast squad from which to choose from. We dominated for large periods, but as I say, decisions change games. Bolton’s goal led a charmed life, but we have to move on from this now and look towards Charlton."
