Manager looking forward to run of fixtures

Dougie Freedman eagerly anticipating Bolton's upcoming fixtures

Dougie Freedman believes Bolton’s upcoming trip to face Wolves at Molineux can provide a platform for a positive run of results.

The Trotters registered their first league win of the campaign on Tuesday evening against Rotherham, and following the conclusion of the home game against Bournemouth on October 4 will have played six games over a three-week period.

And the manager believes this period of fixtures is exactly what his side require at this stage of the campaign.

“People will look ahead and say that our run of fixtures are tough, but they’re all like that at this level,” Freedman said.

“We very much look at the sequence of fixtures as an opportunity to play matches and to get wins on the board.

“The Wolves game is a big game for us. Kenny Jackett has done a very good job there.

“I think their relegation to League One really helped them. They cleared their decks and acquired some good players and have come back up and now have some real momentum.

“They’re a side who like to get the ball wide and deliver crosses into the box. They have a number of good wingers and we have to try and stop them at source.”
