Interesting, sort of defensive, interview with IE in today's MEN.

Needs to find a balance in the formation, 433 worked OK except chances were missed, ball's in weren't what they might have been, poor decision making in the final ⅓rd, need more composure.

Sounds like he's beating himself up a bit.

that's often been the case regardless of the formation though

Rang this morning as our tickets not here, told to ring back if not here by Friday, that was about half ten.

Just got in at 1pm and tickets are here, great service that . 😂

This game and Fleetwood need to see gritty and battling away performances from us. There have been many times in our history when a dodgy run of form has been turned around on the back of a scrappy but effective away performance. Was thinking about it earlier - who remember these from times gone by?

Orient 0 Bolton 1 in 90/91 - we'd lost six of our first 11 but this ugly October result helped sparked an exceptional run of games without defeat that lasted until February

Boro 0 Bolton 1 in 93/4 - a televised game in the snow. We were bottom of the second tier as a newly promoted side but after John McGinlay's winner we went on to stitch together a decent unbeaten spell and get to mid table.

Ipswich 0 Bolton 1 in 98/9 - Following a very dodgy month a last-minute Bob Taylor goal secured an unexpected 0-1 win at Portman Road under Colin Todd. It was the foundation for a big long run unbeaten. 

Birmingham 1 Bolton 2 in 2004/5. In a season that was to end with our first European qualification we went 10 gruesome game without a win during November and December. On a cold night in early January at St Andrews we battled like hell and Kevin Nolan grabbed a last-minute winner.

Boro 0 Bolton 1 - under Megson in 07/8 we'd gone eight games without a win. That had ended with a 1-0 home triumph over West Ham the week before but Gavin McCann's famous winner at Boro suddenly opened up an escape route that nobody thought would be possible 

Swindon 0 Bolton 1 in 16/17 - we'd won our first four games but then didn't win any of the next 7. In the dying minutes of this game at the County Ground a comical own goal secured all three points. We won nine of our next ten games.

No doubt there many other examples - but a drab game ending Cambridge 0 Bolton 1 with an 85th minute winner after a goalmouth scramble would be just what the doctor ordered. Forget the airs and graces, these are the types of showings we need in these two November away games.

Slightly different from those you describe but last year's 1-0 win at Shrewsbury, with a last minute worldy from Charles, stopped a run of 7 straight defeats.  Not a great performance, but a 1-0 away win.  If beating Ipswich the week before was the turning point of the season, Shrewsbury was definitely the day our away form turned and we hardly looked back all season.
