Dorian Dervite - All out for three points

24 October 2014

French defender stresses the importance of securing three points in the new manager's first home game

Dorian Dervite says he and his Bolton Wanderers team-mates will be going all out to secure three points against Brentford at Macron Stadium this weekend.

Wanderers take on the Bees in what will be new manager Neil Lennon’s first game in charge at BL6 on Saturday, having suffered defeat against the 26-year-old’s former side Charlton in midweek.

Cursing the Whites’ luck after taking nothing from a game they controlled in the capital, Dervite voiced his determination to avoid a repeat against Brentford.

“I felt like we dominated the game right from the start,” Dervite told bwfc.co.uk. “We had a few chances and even when we conceded the first goal we kept going right until the end – the manager has instilled that belief in us.

“Our final decisions going forward need to improve a bit. If we start to play with a bit more freedom we know we will improve.

“I obviously wanted to come back to my former club and not lose the game. Unfortunately that didn’t happen and we’re all very frustrated in the dressing room.

“Our final decisions going forward need to improve a bit. If we start to play with a bit more freedom we know we will improve.

“The manager showed us how frustrated he was after the game and he made it clear to us just how much he hates losing. We very much feel the same way and we have to start putting that right from Saturday.”

The Frenchman continued: “We haven’t had a great start to the season but we’re starting to feel like we’re improving in the last two games. 

“The support has been fantastic during the last two away games. We can feel it on the pitch during the game and hopefully we can help replicate that at home on Saturday against Brentford.

“There’s no doubt about it, we have to be going for the victory against Brentford. 

“We can feel things are about to change. We just need to get two or three good results together and we believe we will be away.”
