Matt Gilks - 7

Made some important stops after the break to preserve the clean sheet and suffered injury towards the end.

Gethin Jones - 8

Reliable in defence and a threat going forward from the right-back who had a great game against his old club.

Ricardo Almeida Santos - 8

Assured performance at the back throughout the evening. Shown yellow card at the other end for blocking Carlisle goalkeeper Paul Farman's kick.

Alex Baptiste - 8

Composed from the central defender and made several headed clearances in a great showing alongside Santos at the back, particularly after the break.

Declan John -7

A threat down the left flank with some dangerous crosses and linked up well with Afolayan - went off injured before the hour mark.

MJ Williams - 7

Mopped up in front of the back four and solid distribution of the ball.

Kieran Lee

Played as the most advanced of the midfield trio and showed great energy in behind Doyle with Bolton's counterpressing, with some nice touches at times too.

George Thomason - 7

Was reliable in possession most of the time and showed great energy as ever in the middle of the park.

Lloyd Isgrove - 7

Good link-up with Jones down the right and caused problems at times. Replaced by Elbouzedi before the end.

Eoin Doyle - 7

Had header cleared off the line but got rewards after following in Afolayan shot for 18th goal of the season.

Oladapo Afolayan - 8

Looked vibrant on the left flank and unlucky not to score opener with low shot which came off the post. Was a thorn in the side of Carlisle throughout as the visitors struggled to deal with him.


Harry Brockbank - 6

Replaced the injured John and slotted in at left-back.

Nathan Delfouneso - 6

Replaced Afolayan with around 20 minutes to go and played his part defensively.

Zack Elbouzedi - 6

Came on for Isgrove and showed bursts of pace.
