Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt labelled some of his team's play 'irresistible' in their 5-2 rout over Reading on Easter Monday.

The Trotters, in front of a season-high crowd of over 25,000, eased to victory following a combination of relentless attacking and individual defensive mistakes from the Royals.

Aaron Collins netted a hattrick while former Royal Jon Dadi Bodvarsson added a brace, with Lewis Wing and Paul Mukairu giving the 1,300 travelling supporters something to cheer at least.

Reading beat the Wanderers 2-1 back in September at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

"I would say reasonably pleased," Evatt told BBC Manchester. "The most important thing was the win. The performance is vital to how we process things and view things, and when we perform like that, we’re difficult to stop. We could’ve got more goals, which is obviously frustrating because if it comes down to that then we will be looking back at that second half thinking we’ve had some great opportunities and conceded a sloppy one. Some of our play today was irresistible and I’m really pleased with the players."

Reading boss Ruben Selles labelled Bolton 'one of the best' as his side struggled to contain the promotion-chasing Wanderers.

Bolton sit three points outside the automatic promotion places, while Reading are six points clear of the relegation zone.
