Bolton have made their best start to a season in 82 years after they came from behind to beat Fleetwood and make it four wins from their first four league games.

The first half however, belonged to the visiting side. Fleetwood played a good passing game and seemed unnerved by travelling to the league leaders. Their defence was comfortable against our long balls and they appeared on top.

In the 30th minute, Zach Clough came off with what turned out to be a hamstring injury, the latest in a line of setbacks he has suffered.

Minutes later things got worse after the Cod Army went ahead. David Ball fired home after poor play from Dean Moxey, the full backs being a weak point before the break.

Afterwards Wanderers looked a different team. A header went close just moments into the second half, and then five minutes in, Gary Madine levelled the scoreline with a scrappy goal.

Mark Howard was needed to make a couple of saves but Kaiyne Woolery and Lewis Buxton became more influential as Wanderers looked most like finding the winner.

And in the 84th minute, it happened. Earlier making a double save from Mark Davies and Woolery, Chris Neal couldn’t keep out a close range effort from Josh Vela which sealed another Whites win
