Wellington Silva started again for Bolton on Friday night as they drew 0-0 at Blackburn.
The Arsenal forward was substituted after 79 minutes, replaced by Emile Heskey, but his performance drew lots of praise from Bolton fans on Twitter.

However it wasn’t all good from the Brazilian with many Blackburn fans (and pundits) claiming he should have been sent off after only 36 minutes for kicking out at Adam Henley. He was booked for the ‘incident’.
