DAPO Afolayan finished the season as Wanderers’ top-scorer, but which players have the best strike rates?

7. Elias Kachunga (541 mins)

Kachunga had to play catch-up early in his Bolton career after missing pre-season but has since become an important member of Ian Evatt’s first-team squad.

The former Huddersfield man has found the net four times this season, most recently a stunning strike against Cheltenham back in November.

While he has occasionally played up front, it is worth noting that Kachunga has mostly been used out wide this season.

6. Nathan Delfouneso (377 mins)

Opportunities were hard to come by for Delfouneso in the early stages of the season but he did manage a couple of goals in the Papa John’s Trophy.

The forward was loaned out to Bradford in January but made just six appearances for the League Two side.

Delfouneso was one of eight players released as Wanderers announced their retained list earlier this month.

5. Dion Charles (285 mins)

The Northern Ireland international hit the ground running after joining the Whites from Accrington early in the January window.

Despite having to watch from the sidelines during the first half of the campaign due to a contract dispute with his former club, Charles scored six goals in his first 11 matches at the UniBol.

He finished the season on a high with a brace against Fleetwood on the final day and looks set to be a big player for Wanderers next season.

4. Dapo Afolayan (274 mins)

Afolayan finished the season as Wanderers’ top-scorer, which is no mean feat given he was mostly used on the left wing or in the number 10 role.

The former West Ham man has provided some real moments of quality, including a stunning strike at Rochdale.

Afolayan has improved his end product significantly this season and Evatt will be keen to hold onto him in the summer.

3. Eoin Doyle (259 mins)

The Bolton squad has seen many changes this season, with Doyle making the move to St Patrick’s Athletic back in January.

But the Irishman was a regular starter during the first half of the campaign, scoring eight goals in 28 appearances.

Doyle is still involved with Wanderers in a scouting role in addition to his playing duties, reporting primarily to Chris Markham.

2. Jon Dadi Bodvarsson (167 mins)

Bodvarsson had had a big impact since joining the Whites from Millwall during the January window.

Evatt opted to gradually ease the Iceland international into the side as a result of his lack of playing time during the first half of the campaign.

And the decision certainly paid off, with Bodvarsson scoring seven goals and also showing his technical ability.

1. Amadou Bakayoko (123 mins)

13 goals is a fantastic return for the forward in his first season at Wanderers given his injury frustrations during the first half of the campaign.

The former Coventry man has a knack for coming off the bench and popping up with important goals, such as his efforts at Morecambe and Oxford.

The Bolton fans love to sing “20 goals” and if he can stay fit next season, perhaps that target might just be in reach.
