Stoke City slightly relieved the pressure on under-fire manager Gary Rowett as we picked up our third Championship win of the year in Tuesday evening’s clash with Bolton Wanderers.
Hosting Bolton at the Bet365 Stadium goals from Bruno Martins Indi and Tom Ince were enough to decide the points and the match statistics from the game show we were more than worthy winners as we actually turned up to play for all 90 minutes for a change.
Statistics website WhoScored rated seven players at 7+ for their performances but having opened the scoring Martins Indi only took second place with a score of 8/06 for his own contribution on the day.
Tom Ince stole it by some margin given his goal and assist on the evening as they rated his showing at 9.32.
Far improved overall and with a leaky defence this year keeping the clean sheet is massive, but having taken his criticism lately, on loan Everton defender Ashley Williams gave the correct response in this one. Joe Allen, Williams and Erik Pieters completed our top five.
