Lennon: Better, But We Must Improve

A win is great, but new boss Lennon sees room for improvement

Bryn Lennon

New Bolton Wanderers chief Neil Lennon has been discussing where he thought Wanderers did well, and where they did less well following the 1-0 win that gives him a fantastic 100% record at manager of this famous club.

Speaking to the BEN, he said:

"Seriously, if we had taken a bit more care in the final third we would have won three or four nil,"

"The amount of times we broke on them in the second half but kept giving the ball away cheaply, we were outnumbering them four against three and chose the wrong option.

He continued:

"You can definitely see they are lacking a little bit in confidence; they were a little bit anxious on the ball. We need to be better with that.

"We got the penalty to go 2-0 up and it would have been thoroughly deserved but unfortunately we missed it.

Speaking a brand of common sense that his predecessor Dougie Freedman struggled with, Lennon went on:

"I thought the midfield boys gave us a great platform and Andy Lonergan was superb when he was called upon as well."

I would bet on him sorting out the problems quickly.

Seems like a top man.
