Here are the match stats from Bolton’s eventual FA Cup win over Walsall. Trailing 1-0 at the break, it looked like the misery would continue after New Year’s Day’s defeat, but a Josh Magennis hat-trick and Clayton Donaldson’s first for the club turned things around. The match was played in front of 5,506, Bolton’s lowest FA Cup third-round attendance post-war.
