Response pleases Megson

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson was pleased with the way his team bounced back from the dismal performance against Fulham to draw 1-1 with West Brom on Saturday. Megson thought his side had played well enough at The Hawthorns to clinch all three points, but was reasonably satisfied with a draw. He said: "I couldn't have asked for much more. I felt we looked solid, we looked organised, worked our socks off, so we're disappointed that we've come here and not won. "We should have won the game and we had a lot more opportunities than they did. (Scott) Carson in West Brom's goal has been a lot busier than Jussi - he's certainly made three or four world-class saves. "They hadn't really had a shot on target in the game and that includes the goal because it was going wide until it hit Danny (Shittu) on the thigh. "But I thought it was a good response from the awful performance last week. It wasn't champagne football by any stretch of the imagination but it was a great deal better and if we keep performing like that then we'll be okay. "We'd lost our last two games and the big thing was to come here and put in a performance more like ourselves. We looked a threat at every set-piece and at times placed some decent stuff."
