Bolton remain unbeaten in their pre-season schedule after a side made up of reserve and academy players drew 3-3 at Altrincham.

It looked like the two sides would go in goalless at the break, but both sides managed to find a goal just before the interval.

First, the hosts took the lead, as Tom Kearney's teasing cross was headed into his own net by Temitope Obadeyi.

But Wanderers pulled level on the stroke of half-time, as Adam Blakeman played in Danny Ward, who beat the offside trap before chipping over the stranded Russell Saunders in the Alty goal.

Bolton took the lead ten minutes after the restart through Obadeyi, but were pegged back to 2-2 just two minutes later when Danny Heffernan struck his effort past Rob Lainton.

With 73 minutes on the clock, Wanderers were back infront through Marcos Michael, but the hosts were not to be denied a deserved draw as Greg Young scrambled the ball home after a Tom Kearney free-kick came back off the crossbar.
