Outplayed and out fought in that second half.

To have only 2 shots on target in such an important game is really poor.

Lets hope that Crawley are not up for the game next week.

Surely our lads have to want it more next week.

Correct, we would have needed to win next week with a draw!

If Morecambe draw and we lose we’re out of it, at 1-1 we’d of been promoted, that last goal is a disaster.

Not sure Sarc was fully on it, but we could all see that we were struggling to control it in midfield. 

They were having a field day down our left, and Thomason out there would have mitigated that. Or even Jackson in front of John; a horses for courses job.

Not been as disappointed over football for a long time. 

Focusing on the fact we are still in the driving seat and look better away from home than at home. 

In retrospect it was not an ideal fixture today. The ideal would have been a mid-table mob with nothing to play for. We've got that next week. Last 15 or 20 I hope they are on the beach like Forest were a few years ago on Wilbraham's big day.

Exactly, it was a win or nothing, a draw was worthless really when the aim is promotion

Not really pointless having an extra point ? As it stands we have to win next week , with that extra point a draw could have been enough.

John was the weak link and Dapo wasn’t far behind.

I feel about as down as I did driving away from Stoke following our relegation. Such was the level of expectation.

Sarc should not have been subbed; Half a lion was awful and you can’t have him and Arthur on together. Midfield was shit and Doyle was useless

Not sure how much blame Doyle can be given,he barely had a sniff- a shot on the turn that was blocked, and a header he should have done better with. A great run and sensible play for the goal too, but second half he had so little support and service- Exeter take some credit for that too.

They’ve got a better goal difference, we’d still have to win either way

Yes, not going up today never entered my head tbh.

We've worked to hard to throw it away now.

Just angry m8. Thought Doyle should have scored at least one

Our players just don't have it in them to fight & scrap, great when they are allowed to play but any team who gets amongst us will have success.

We have no characters & fighters in this team, they should have took confidence from scoring first and gone on and won today, but they shrink & hide, Exeter are not a good team but they deserved that today 2nd half because they showed up and wanted it more. I may be wrong but I can't think of another Bolton side since the early 80's that were so un competitive & soft.

They had everything to play for today but shit out.

We looked all over it from about the 5th to the 35th minute, genuinely like we’d pick them off at will and the goal was a belter.

Other than that though I just thought Exeter looked like a really good team and probably shaded the game. The defence never looked comfortable, I think it was them having 2 up top, we’ve not really had to deal with that before and Santos/Baptiste looked more hesitant than I’ve seen them for a long time.

I just knew we wouldn’t win today, when have bolton ever done anything easy? I’m sure we’ll win next week and go up, but doing it with a game to spare, no chance.

No need to over react, but there were some underperformers today, possible that the occasion got to them but I don’t think we’ve been at our best for a while.

Next Saturday is huge, we go again and we’ll be league 1 by the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

They've fought their way from 20th to top 3 in 9 fucking weeks mate.

Totally disagree. If that was the case we'd be mid table. Exeter did really well second half after throwing the kitchen sink at us.

Disappointing result but it's still in our hands.
