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."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
