The debrief: Bolton Wanderers away

A recap of the key messages from Dean Holden and Jamie Paterson, following our 2-2  draw away to Bolton.

City's assistant head coach answered questions from the media along with Paterson, who scored the equalising goal at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Here's what they had to say:

Dean Holden

  • He said City dominated the play without threatening Bolton in first half
  • He reflected on two points from two games but believes City could have had all six points
  • Holden heaped praise on the work rate of the new signings, notably Weimann ‘worked his socks off’ adding it was ‘great to see Watkins make his debut'
  • He said Lloyd Kelly put in another solid performance. He has waited patiently for his chance and the left back has 'Premier League attributes'
  • City's goals came at the right time
  • He added young Mo Eisa will be a good player for the club. He said he looks sharp and has a point to prove after coming up from League Two

Jamie Paterson

  • He said City were disappointed to be 2-0 down but played well enough to win
  • He described a 'solid start' to City's 2018/19 campaign after two points from two games
  • Paterson was adamant he didn't dive when he was in the middle of a first-half penalty claim
  • The aim is to get those first three points on the board at home to Middlesbrough
