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."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
