Lennon: Thrashing Wigan Was For The Fans!

After another highly successful home win, this time against Wigan, Lennon speaks

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon has been talking up the recent 3-1 home thrashing of local minnows Wigan Athletic, and has dedicated the victory to the supporters.

Speaking to the Bolton Evening News, Lennon said:

"It's more pleasing for the supporters than me, an outsider, coming in and sampling it for the first time."

He continued:

"The result was for the supporters.

You could see the reaction we got second half and I'm delighted they can enjoy a bit of success."

With the upcoming international break in mind, Wanderers will have a short delay until their next fixture, but with the immediate reaction to the win in mind, the manager said:

"They'll enjoy their weekend and then I'm sure they'll be feeling much better over the next two weeks."

The circumstances surrounding his arrival (and of course the departure of Dougie Freedman) has given Wanderers fans cause for cautious optimism, and if we continue to show the form that we have of late then we just might have our first cult-hero manager since Sam Allardyce.
