The Reds were held to a 0-0 draw at Anfield as they failed to break down Neil Lennon’s side.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he “enjoyed” his side’s FA Cup fourth round stalemate with Championship side Bolton Wanderers at Anfield today, report the Express, with the Northern Irishman also describing his side as “excellent” despite the fact that they struggled to break down a well organised Trotters side.
The Reds dominated the game against a Bolton side who have been led away from the Championship relegation battle by former Celtic manager Neil Lennon in recent months, but a combination of a poor final ball, wayward finishing and a stunning goalkeeping display by Hungarian stopper Adam Bogdan meant that they were unable to break through.
Despite the rather tepid fare on offer for the Anfield faithful, however, one man who did enjoy the showing was Rodgers, who described his side as “excellent” following the goalless draw and suggested that he was “proud” of their performance:
“It was a really good game. I enjoyed it, a great atmosphere and a credit to both teams, I thought we were excellent. We did everything but score. I am really proud of the team. We kept knocking on the door, their keeper made some great saves.”
The two sides will now meet again in Lancashire in ten days’ time, with Rodgers perhaps just relieved to avoid the fates of Manchester City and Chelsea on a day of stunning FA Cup shocks.
