Kenny Jackett: Credited Andy Keogh after the 1-1 draw at Bolton

The Lions led through Andy Keogh's ninth-minute penalty but another spot-kick denied them victory - Keith Andrews netting 11 minutes before the break after a foul on Chung-Yong Lee.

Jackett said: "We had a bit of a threat on the break but overall we have got four points out of six against Bolton which is great against a team that have come down from the Premier League.

"The first half we played well and caused Bolton problems. In the second half it was a rear-guard action from us and we defended well for long periods. In terms of the table and where it leaves us we are still in there with a shout."

On Keogh, Jackett added: "I think Andy is a key player for us and I thought he played very well today.

"Him and Danny N'Guessan up front gives us a lot of pace on the counter, which you need to take advantage of when you play a team which try to get on top of you like Bolton do."

"I was pleased with Walford's first game because he gave us balance on the left hand side and he had a great strike in the first half where he nearly scored as well."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
