Dougie Freedman: Bolton manager felt his side had been mugged by Ipswich

Wanderers saw their eight-match unbeaten run in the Championship ended by Carlos Edwards' 88th-minute winner at Portman Road.

"Obviously we're disappointed with the result," said Freedman, whose side remain eighth in the table.

"It was a very hard-fought and physical Championship game. From the 60th minute onwards, I thought we were dominant in possession and created a few opportunities.

"We could have worked their goalkeeper a bit more, but we looked the more capable team towards the end and the most likely to score.

"We had the ball in the right areas, but were perhaps let down by the last decision whether to shoot, cross or control the ball in vital areas.

"To then get mugged at the end was very disappointing, but we mustn't look back.

"We're a match for anyone and there's no doubt in my mind we can win another five games, especially playing the way we did today, to keep our season alive."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
