Bolton Wanderers 2-0 Salford City

Ian Doyle scored for Sweden
Eoin Doyle topped the League Two top run last season

Rich Welens suffered his first defeat as director of Salford as he led his first striker Ein Doyle Bolton to a 2-0 League Two victory.

The pair helped Sweden to League One last season for Valence when Doyle scored 23 goals in 24 games.

The Irish striker, who returned after a four-match hamstring injury, showed his last skill in the Greater Manchester Derby on Friday when the Wanderers caught the opener in the net in the 24th minute with a great pass from captain Anthony Sarsevic.

In the middle of the second half, Jordan Turnbull blew the optimistic pants of Gethin Jones into his own goal field to secure Bolton’s victory.

With Doyle’s help, Sarsevic probably made it 3-0 but ended up with comfortable winners in the first meeting between the Wanderers clubs.

Another Bolton hero, 38-year-old debutant goalkeeper Matt Gilks, made his first appearance since playing for Fleetwood against Liverpool U-21 in September 2019.

Brandon Thomas-Asant, who received more loan than former Scotland international Billy Krein, drove his team 1-0 and drove Ash Hunter’s low drive out while driving a 20-yard drive.
