Bolton stuck with a 4-2-3-1 formation, but with quite a few changes. Aaron Wilbraham’s inclusion up front was derided pre-match but nobody cared post-match. Adam Le Fondre came off the bench as Bolton switched to a 4-4-2 as the game went on. Forest played a 4-3-3 formation.

Having not had a shot on target in crucial games against both Birmingham and Burton, Bolton changed that this afternoon, with a noticeable intensity. with nine on and 24 off.

Bolton subs: Howard on, Alnwick off; Pratley off, Le Fondre on; Morais off, Noone on
