Wanderers' preparations for the forthcoming campaign concluded with a defeat as Mark Vejinovic scored the only goal of the game with a 25-yard free-kick in the first half.

McNaughton, one of Dougie Freedman's summer signings, was disappointed with the result but believes it was a worthwhile workout ahead of the trip to Watford in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

"It was a difficult match for us," McNaughton admitted to Bolton's official YouTube channel.

"I thought they kept the ball well and had large periods of the ball.

"It was a good test for us but obviously the result wasn't great. But there were some pleasing bits throughout the match - it's a difficult one when you get beat and don't see the ball for large spells.

"We are just going to learn from it and take it in to the next match."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
