Match report: Bolton Wanderers 1-1 Bristol Rovers

By bristolrovers co uk, Tuesday Jan 28, 2020

Rovers were held to a 1-1 draw at the University of Bolton Stadium, but scored their first goal of 2020 and in the process narrowly avoided their longest goal-scoring drought for almost a century.

The Gas put the home side under heavy pressure in the first half, witnessing an Ed Upson deflection cleared narrowly off the line, before captain Ollie Clarke somehow went closer with a headed effort that was palmed onto the post.

Jonson Clarke-Harris made the breakthrough though, latching onto a fizzed ball from Alex Rodman to hoof the ball into the roof of the net from close range.

Wanderers, however,  weren’t rolling over and fired back with 10 minutes to play through a Daryl Murphy header.
