U18s: Bolton Wanderers 5-1 Coventry City

26 March 2018

Wanderers' Under-18s recorded an emphatic 5-1 victory over Coventry City to keep their lead at the top of the table.

 The Whites fell behind early on through unfortunate circumstances, as Callum James' attempted clearance rebounded off of an onrushing striker and into the empty goal.

In response, Bolton dominated the game and equalised through Cameron Moore who followed up a Matty Barnes effort to stroke the ball home.

Dennis Politic was causing the Coventry defence all sorts of problems, and he put the Whites ahead after beating four players and firing his shot into the net.

The second half followed a similar pattern of Wanderers pressure, and the lead was extended to 3-1 as Barnes linked up with Ronan Darcy to all but secure the win.

Barnes struck again shortly after, this time Luca Navarro the man getting the assist for his through-ball as the Trotters continued to dominate the game.

The sensational performance was rounded out by Navarro who combined with Moore to place his strike into the bottom corner, and give Wanderers their fourth consecutive victory.

Bolton: James, Smith, Edmondson, Fearnley, Hartsthorne, Preston, Moore, Navarro, Barnes, Politic, Darcy

Substitutes: Jones-Griffiths, Aspinall, Boon, Brown, Comber
