Long-suffering fans of Sky Bet Championship club Bolton Wanderers were left less than pleased once again as their side fell to a 1-0 defeat to Leeds United at the University of Bolton Stadium.
The Trotters are now twelve league matches without a win, a run dating back to the end of September and the club’s on-field and off-field struggles have left them looking strong relegation candidates.
Against Leeds United, Phil Parkinson’s side failed to register a single shot on target. After the match, Wanderers’ fans took to Twitter to condemn what some have labelled as a ‘painful’ display.
We're painfully workmanlike with no Ameobi, so poor in the final third, bad decision making and poor final ball, wingers who run with the ball like centre halves, struggling to even get into positions to create a chance, never mind getting a chance or even scoring. #bwfc

The sad thing is, it's yet another team that doesn't have to be anywhere near their best to beat us. We again show little attacking intent and have no shots on target, it's a bad combo when we can't defend #bwfc

It's almost impossible to get behind the team at the moment, it's painful to watch, nothing to get excited about, all the while knowing nothing is going to change. Just rip it all up and start again, at least it would give us something to get behind #bwfc

We defended resolutely at times but we don’t have an outlet, and failed to capitalise on their goalkeepers mistakes. On the ball, we look scared, can’t get rid of it quick enough. A gulf in class between the two teams. #BWFC
