Despite Liam Feeney proving a standout talent for Blackpool this season, he was back to his average self in last night’s draw with Bolton.
So far this season, Feeney has come up with 10 assists for Blackpool, a sizeable contribution to their lofty table position.
However, when he took to the field at the University of Bolton stadium, it’s almost as if a cloud emerged above Feeney as, apart from glancing a shot off the crossbar, he looked like the average player he was during his time at Bolton once again.

It’s safe to say that Feeney didn’t receive the warmest of welcomes from the Bolton faithful as he was subject to a few boos when he first got on the ball.
However, the excellent Adam Chicksen and Josh Emmanuel kept the former Wanderers winger quiet for the vast majority of the 0-0 draw against the Tangerines.

Meanwhile, another former Wanderer in the form of Jay Spearing had a typically solid game for Blackpool.
Just like in his time at Bolton, he was cool, calm and collected on the ball and wasn’t afraid of a crunching tackle, it was just a shame to see him wearing orange.
It’s hugely impressive that Bolton have held another top-end side to a draw. In the last few weeks, Wanderers have drawn with Sunderland and Blackpool, easily putting Keith Hill’s side on par with those teams at the top of the division.
Hopefully, we can see some results to show that in the coming weeks!
