Bolton 1 – 0 Morecambe

Liverpool loanee Conor Bradley opened his Sky Bet League One goal account as Bolton beat Morecambe 1-0 to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Early-season high-flyers Ian Evatt struggled to break through the Shrimpers’ well-organized defense until the talented teenager made the breakthrough.

Elias Kachunga and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson created the chance and Bradley finished from six yards out after the Iceland striker’s shot was blocked.

The Trotters have rarely been troubled by a visiting side yet to claim their first league win this season, with ex-Wanderer Ryan Delaney coming closest to equalizing, heading just wide of the free-kick by Ash Hunter after 53 minutes.

Derek Adams’ visitors stretched defender Max Melbourne in an effort-heavy but low-quality second half.

Substitute Amadou Bakayoko should have spared Wanderers any late anxiety, but his poor header from Kyle Dempsey’s cross didn’t prove costly.
