Dougie Freedman shares his thoughts after Bolton's 2-0 win at Bournemouth.

Dougie Freedman says he was delighted for the travelling fans as Bolton ran out 2-0 winners against Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium.

Over 1,000 travelling fans were on hand to witness goals at the end of each half from David Ngog and Jermaine Beckford as Wanderers extend their unbeaten run to six.

“I am happy for the travelling fans,” Freedman said in his post-match press. “We had 1,000 fans here who all made the long journey to the game and they got what they deserved.

“They saw a performance from their team that was fully committed. 

“I thought we got it spot tactically and we frustrated them at times. On the counter attack we created four or five very good opportunities and it could easily have been more. We were fairly comfortable throughout the majority of the game.”

The Whites are now six games unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship ahead of their final game before the November international break, with Millwall the visitors to the Reebok Stadium in seven days time. 

Boss Freedman praised the work rate of his two frontman Ngog and Beckford, who both ran tirelessly in order for Bolton to secure back-to-back league wins on the road. 

“We had worked a lot on our tactics this week and I think that showed in the limited number of opportunities Bournemouth were able to create,” the manager explained.

“I thought both of our strikers played very well and it was pleasing to see them get on the scoresheet. 

“They both worked very hard and held the ball up well. They are both very talented players and they put in a real shift for the team.

“Overall our performance was very good, Chung-Yong Lee showed his desire in midfield and the spirit in the group is starting to build. David Ngog and Jermaine Beckford got what they deserved with their goals.”
