Bolton bounce back in style

Bolton manager Dougie Freedman was “excited” after his side hit back from two successive defeats to comfortably beat Doncaster 3-0 in the Sky Bet Championship.

First half goals from Joe Mason and Andre Moritz put Wanderers in complete control before a late strike from Neil Danns added the icing to the cake.

The result sees the Trotters leapfrog above Rovers in the table and Freedman believes his team can climb further if they start to be more consistent.

Freedman said: “I’m excited at how we bounced back. You need that in this division because there are a lot of games that come thick and fast and there are a lot of good teams.

“It’s a credit to the lads and how they’ve stuck together. We worked as a whole team and we saw a Bolton team at their best today.

“We sent the fans home happy today as well and the fans and the players stuck together well and everything came off right for us in the end.

“I think the big challenge for me is getting some consistency. Once we start to do that then we’ll move up this league quickly.”

Freedman reserved particular praise for Moritz, who he signed from former club Crystal Palace in the summer.

He added “I feel a bit disappointed for the fans because they haven’t been able to see him play enough.

“He’s had a couple of injuries and a few knocks but today I thought that he was just outstanding. His link up play between the midfield and the strikers was just superb.”
