Neil Lennon Happy With His Strikers After Wigan Win

He loves it when a plan comes together

Speaking to the official Bolton Wanderers website, manager Neil Lennon discussed his delight with the performances of his attacking players.

With goals coming from Max Clayton, Craig Davies and Chung-Yong Lee, it meant that all three of his forward players got on the scoresheet as Wanderers ran out easy 3-1 winners over local knobheads Wigan Athletic.

Lennon said:

"The first goal was crucial and we got it. I don't how Chungy sees the pass to Max - I don't think anyone else in the stadium saw it. It was a great finish from Max too.

"I thought Max was a threat all night. His movement was fantastic and he caused all kinds of problems getting in behind the defence.

Lennon continued:

"The second goal for me was the goal of the night. It was a great move and it was pleasing to see Craig get on the scoresheet for all the work he puts in for the team.

"We've set a benchmark now and people are now starting to talk about Bolton for the first time in a while.

"We're out of the bottom three - that's the first part of the job done. We now have to push on."

I wonder what Jermaine Beckford makes of all this....
