ON THE WHISTLE MATCH REPORT

11 August 2015

The Brewers cause another cup upset!

Bolton started the game brightest, as you would expect in their own back yard. Danns and Clough both had long range efforts in the opening 15 minutes but neither of them failed to test Remi Matthews between the Burton sticks. 

The home side continued to apply the pressure through a Feeney free kick which Matthews saved before Madine headed onto the bar which dropped for Clough who couldn't find the back of the net.

Albion upped their game after the half hour mark as Reilly saw a shot blocked before Edwards' cross was met by Binnom-Williams but his header was wide. 

It was Bolton that finished the half strongly as a series of corners weren't dealt with by the Albion but luckily Bolton couldn't find the back of the net either.

A cagey first half from the Brewers saw them go into the break just level after a lot of scares in the first half. 

Half Time: Bolton Wanderers 0-0 Burton Albion 

Unchanged for the second half for both sides. 

Bolton had the first real chance of the half as Feeney latched on to a good through ball but his chipped shot was blocked by the on rushing Remi Matthews.

The first change of the game went to the Albion as Tom Naylor replaces Lucas Akins which saw Matty Palmer move to the right wing. 

The home side upped their game towards the back end of the game winning a catalogue of set pieces, all of which Burton dealt with.

New front man Aurelien Joachim was given the green light on 86 minutes as he replaced Timmy Thiele. 

GOAL: The breakthrough came on the 88th minute as Palmer picked up the ball from 35 yards before lashing it pash Amos, with the help of a deflection!

Former England international Emile Heskey came on to try to rescue Wanderers in the 89th minute. 

5 was the number on the fourth official's board to signal the added minutes but the Brewers held on!
