Speaking to the club website, Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon has been discussing the obvious increase in the levels of intensity shown by his squad.
The manager said:
"It's certainly the best we've played since I've been here,"
"We were up against a very good side in Cardiff who have started well under Russell Slade, who himself is a very good manager.
"There was a good intensity and tempo to our play and we showed some real quality in the final third.
Lennon then went on to say:
"Everyone tonight can be satisfied with their performance."
Can you imagine Dougie Freedman saying that?
I think not.
The 3-0 was certainly comprehensive and it is clear that the new manager's impact on the squad has been telling. Even the defeats to Charlton Athletic and Norwich City came with a degree of improvement for Bolton and the future is looking rosy under the 43yr old Northern Irishman.
