Bolton breeze past Port Vale to extend winning run
Bolton are on their best run of form for 40 years thanks to an impressive 3-1 victory over Port Vale.
Phil Parkinson's side notched up their sixth win on the bounce in all competitions thanks to an incredible three-goal haul in nine breathless first-half minutes.
Zach Clough opened the scoring, spinning on to Derik Osede's pass before drilling a powerful effort past Jak Alnwick from the edge of the box.
Josh Vela then doubled the lead, sweeping home from close range after Alnwick had spilled Sammy Ameobi's cross-shot.
And full-back Lawrie Wilson then sent the Macron into delirium as he hammered a half-cleared corner past Alnwick for his first goal of the season.
The home side had chances to go further out of sight as Andy Taylor had one effort tipped over the bar and continued to dominate in the second half, with Gary Madine going close on three different occasions.
Vale recovered their poise and after defender Remie Streete had been denied superbly by Mark Howard, finally punctured the Wanderers' defence when Sam Hart headed in from close range.
Bolton last won six games consecutively in 1976 in the old Division Two under the management of Ian Greaves.
