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."
