Expected defeat

I had this down as a 3-0 win for Bolton in the Badger prediction league so the result was more or less what I expected given our poor record there.

Ian Evatt's side were indebted to on-loan Manchester City keeper James Trafford, who twice denied teenager Jesurun Rak-Sakyi with the Trotters leading 2-1.

The Crystal Palace loanee's persistence had forced an error from Johnston for Scott Fraser to fire the Addicks into a fifth-minute lead.

Wanderers equalised when Bradley bundled in Jack Iredale's cross after nine minutes.

Gethin Jones and Bradley then linked for Lee to shoot Wanderers in front with his first goal since last January.

Trafford had already denied Albie Morgan in the first half before keeping out efforts in quick succession from the dangerous Rak-Sakyi, who also curled another fractionally wide

George Thomason had a goal disallowed for offside before Johnson's 76th-minute effort sealed the victory.

Ben Garner reckons we gave Bolton three goals:

Louis Mendez gives his four takeaways from the match, noting that it is the third league match in a row where the Addicks have been below par:
