Bolton have developed the unhappy habit recently of getting to play teams just when they are at the peak of their form. So as last week playing Boro, this week we get to play Spurs. Thank God our next game is against Sunderland..

It's fustrating because, as it happens Bolton are not woefully bad, just not good enough. We play decent football ins pells but the finsihing remains woeful - Ricketts particularly is still a shadow of the player he was at the start of last season. Also, the defense is not holding out as it did last season - we've scored in all but one game so far, but have only kept two clean sheets in 10 games, which is as much what our league position is about as our lack of converting chances.

As to this game, there may not be much to say. The first half was relatively even but rather uneventful and in the second half, Bolton's goal was very nice but at the other end we failed to mark Robbie Keane twice and he scored twice. Davies's late goal was a breakaway as Bolton pressed for a last gasp equaliser and was just one of those things but the second half performance probably didn't deserve more than a draw and we need to be winning games to get out of the trough we're in.
