Joel Dixon – 7

Came up against old side and was booed early on by his former club’s supporters. Produced brilliant save to deny Sea’s bicycle kick as full-time approached.

Gethin Jones – 7

Had chance cleared off the line early on, and was dependable as always on the right flank.

Harry Brockbank – 7

Given an opportunity in central defence and looked okay in the role. Later went to right-back when several changes were made in the second half.

Alex Baptiste – 7

Fairly solid at the back from the veteran and did well with aerial balls throughout the encounter.

Declan John – 7

Got forward fairly well but struggled to snuff out threats from Barrow down the left in parts of the first half. Afolayan partnership continues to prove productive.

MJ Williams – 7

On the ball a lot and helped to drive Bolton forward at times. Was taken off before the hour mark.

Kieran Lee – 6

Played further forward up the pitch with Thomason. Was taken off before the hour.

George Thomason – 7

Showed great energy in the middle as always – later went into the holding midfield role after Williams went off.

Nathan Delfouneso – 6

Got on the ball in the final third but wasn’t alble to create much of note – replaced before the hour mark.

Eoin Doyle – 6

Not many chances in the first half but showed intelligence to set up Afolayan before the break.

Oladapo Afolayan – 7

Looked promising at times going forward and produced a sublime finish to open the scoring. Replaced after the hour mark.

Substitutes

Josh Sheehan – 7

Bright on the ball after coming on and looked to have shirt pulled back in the box on one occasion, which could have been a penalty.

Antoni Sarcevic

Skipper aw a near post effort go wide from a corner and got involved in the final third.

Ronan Darcy – 6

Went to the right flank of the attack after coming on and did not look out of place.

Dennis Politic – 7

Went to the left flank when he came on and impressed on his return from injury with a decent cameo which he will be pleased with, also delivered a corner which Sarcevic stabbed wide.

Liam Gordon – 6

Replaced John for the final 20 minutes or so of the game and slotted into the left-back role he has impressed in so far in pre-season.

Amadou Bakayoko – 5

Headed over a cross in one half chance which presented itself to him during closing stages.

Andrew Tutte – 6

Assumed the holding midfield role after Thomason went off, and then went to centre half alongside Senior at the end.

Adam Senior – 6

Youngster again did not look out of place in senior men’s football in the heart of defence in brief spell towards the end of game.

Ali Crawford – 6

Went into the number 10 role after coming on in the closing stages. Played a couple of nice balls through the middle of the park.
