Full Time: Bolton 1-0 PNE

North End were not at the races this evening at the LFA and their first game back in front of their own fans ends in defeat.

Ethan Walker had PNE’s best chance just before the break as he hit the outside of the post, but the sides went into the break level.

Gethin Jones scored the only goal of the game, stepping forward from right back to fire past Hudson.

There will be two more minutes added on to the end of the game.

Riis does well down the left and squares the ball to Evans who flicks the ball across goal, with the ball staying in.

A pause in play in the second half for a drinks break.

North End change their outfield players: Hudson, Storey, Lindsay, Hughes, Barkhuizen, Ledson, Whiteman, Mawene, Cunningham, Riis, Evans.

Maguire tries his luck from range but his low effort is comfortably saved.

Jones is replaced by Brockbank.

Afolayan is booked for dissent.

Leigh is booked for a strong tackle on Jones. It resulted in both sets of players trying to separate each other.

Hudson makes a great save!

Afolayan looks to bend the ball into the top corner and but for a fine stop from Hudson he would have found it.
