Bolton boss Dougie Freedman thought his side edged Good Friday's game against Charlton Athletic, but had few complaints with the final result.

Wanderers played out a goalless draw with the Addicks at The Valley, but came closest to taking all three points as Matt Mills saw a header cleared off the line early in the second half.

Despite having to settle for a point in the capital, Freedman thought Wanderers were marginally the better side and would have taken all three points on another day.

"I felt that we defended very well today and limited Charlton to very few opportunities," Freedman told the club's official website.

"We lost Medo Kamara with a stomach bug before the game, while Andre Moritz also tweaked his hamstring in training. We were also without Mark Davies, so we had to make some late decisions.

"We continued to push forward and had one opportunity cleared off the line, but even after that I felt that we still looked the more likely side to go on and win the game.

"Overall our performance was very resilient and dogged, in particular during the second half.

"We edged the game in terms of opportunities but unlike us of late, we failed to take the goalscoring opportunities.

"We go home with a point knowing that on another day we could have taken all three."
