Dapo Afolayan has been Bolton's best player this season and Ian Evatt must wait until the end of the season to see if they get promoted to see if he is proved right about his Wanderers team.

That's the view of former Crystal Palace and Birmingham City striker Clinton Morrison.

Wanderers fell behind in the first half after John Akinde put the Gills ahead, before Kyle Dempsey doubled the visitors' advantage shortly afterwards.

Bolton were booed off at the break, but fought back after half-time as Dapo Afolayan halved the deficit as full-time approached.

And Kieran Lee slotted home from Declan John's low cross to give Wanderers a deserved point and put an end to the club's losing streak of three matches.

Afolayan bagged his eighth goal of the season, while Lee scored his third as his rich vein of form in a Wanderers shirt continued.

Speaking on the EFL highlights show on Quest, Morrison felt that Afolayan has been the club's best player so far this campaign.

Responding to Evatt's assertion that he felt his side are the best team in the division based on performances, Morrison believes that this division is a different one compared to League Two and that the end of the season will tell if that assessment comes true.

He said: “He’s been good, Afolayan. He’s been excellent this season, it was a really good goal and he’s probably been Bolton’s best player.

“It’s a fantastic finish and then Kieran Lee goes and scores the equaliser.

“One thing I will say, Ian Evatt said it in League Two that his team was the best in the league. This is a different league in League One.

“If at the end of the season they go up and get promoted, he’d be right again, but sometimes do not speak too much. I had the biggest problem of doing that at football.”
