Megson accepts Bolton fans leaving before end of derby defeat

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson had no complaints over fans leaving early during their 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

Supporters left the ground in numbers after Sam Ricketts' bizarre only goal in the 73rd minute which sealed Bolton's fate.

David Dunn made the breakthrough with his sixth goal of the season as Blackburn ended a run of 10 straight league defeats on the road.

Megson sympathised with the fans and said: "You are looking at a team that is 2-0 down and playing poorly, I can understand people being frustrated and leaving."

Next up for Bolton is a trip to Fulham on Saturday before a potentially crucial match against Wolves at Molineux the following week.
