Bolton centre back Alex Baptiste towers over Ian Henderson as he challenges for a header.Salford City’s unbeaten home run in League Two this season was ended by Bolton Wanderers’ narrow 0-1 win.

It was one of those nights where if it was decided on effort, dedication and desire The Ammies would have been good for three points.

However a freak Lloyd Isgrove goal gave the visitors a lead that they didn’t relinquish despite Salford’s best efforts.

Results elsewhere mean Salford are still in play-off contention, and if the same levels of commitment are applied to the final six games then there is more than a chance.

Manager Gary Bowyer was disappointed at not taking anything, but agreed that Salford still have opportunity.

“I thought it was a terrific game for people to watch, from a neutral’s point of view it would have been a really good game to watch but from our point of view we’re disappointed we’ve not got anything out of the game. 

“But [there is] a lot for us to be positive about, obviously we’re disappointed with the outcome, we didn’t start the game great. But after that we had a real good go and you see the celebrations of Bolton at the end which tells you how much it meant to them, and obviously how much they knew how hard we pushed them.

“In terms of performance it’s probably been the best since I’ve been here but I think like you say lots for us to be positive and take forward into our next game.

“Six games to go and I hope we only go game by game, and obviously there’s a hell of a lot of football left to play. We’ve got to pick them up a bit because their efforts tonight deserved more than what we actually got.”

Salford drop to 10th in League Two, but remain four points outside the play-offs ahead of Saturday’s trip to Tranmere Rovers.
