[Archived] News Article -> 2012/13 Half-Time: Bolton Wanderers 0 Rovers 0

Recommended Posts

Bolton and Rovers are level at the break after an entertaining first half at the Reebok. It has been a game of few chances so far, although Rovers have hit the woodwork, but it has been high tempo and end to end and both teams will feel as if they can win the match.

Michael Appleton named four changes to the side that played so poorly in the first half at home to Peterborough at the weekend and, so far at least, he has had the sort of response that he would have wanted. Rovers have looked far more solid at the back and have played with more pace and intent as they have forced a number of corners and set-pieces in dangerous areas.

Neither side has seriously tested the opposition keeper and, despite the end-to-end nature of the game, chances have been few and far between, but that could well change in the second half. Bolton have had two penalty appeals turned down, but Rovers went closest to taking the lead as the half drew to a close when Pedersen's low free-kick was touched onto the crossbar by Hanley.

Rovers will know that they need to start winning games soon if they are to have any chance of promotion and that a defeat may end any hopes that they have of making the play-offs.
