At 85 minutes, it was looking pretty glum for Bolton Wanderers fans at the Macron Stadium, with the club losing 2-1 to Nottingham Forest and seemingly on the verge of relegation to League One. Hope Akpan’s stunner at Deepdale had put Burton Albion on level terms against Preston, with the Brewers set to stay in the Championship.
Then, in the course of two minutes, it all changed. Bolton somehow found a way to score twice- first through David Wheater, and then through Aaron Wilbraham, who had copped a fair bit of flak from the fans but ended up scoring what will go down as one of the most important goals in the history of the club.
Bolton were safe- we’ll now have Preston, Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan in the SAME league next season, and brave Burton were relegated to the third tier.
