Ben Amos satisfied with hard-fought point

Goalkeeper talks to following Wanderers' 1-1 draw with Brentford

Ben Amos was pleased to see Bolton Wanderers come from behind to clinch a deserved point against Brentford on Monday night.

The 25-year-old denied the Bees on several occasions to help Wanderers earn a share of the spoils as Neil Danns’ half-volley cancelled out John Swift’s opener.

And although frustrated to see the Whites’ winless run continue, Amos praised the manner of his team-mates’ performance to earn a draw at Macron Stadium.

“It was tough at times,” said the goalkeeper. “Brentford had great movement in the final third and it was difficult to cope with. 

“It was something we’ve not really come up against so far, but we dug in well and it was a fair point in the end.

“Having said that, we’re a little disappointed to only come away with a point. We had a couple of half-chances that on another day could drop our way and we take all three points. 

“I’ve said before if we don’t win the game then we’ve got to make sure we don’t lose the game, and that’s what we did.”

Amos continued: “We need to be resilient and stick together. We’re determined to turn things around and make it hard to beat us.

“In the past we’ve been really hard to beat by anyone at home, and we need to get back to that. 

“We need to get the self-belief that we can beat anyone who comes here, and we can only get that by picking points up and not getting beaten.

“It’s hard not to blame it on luck but if one or two things go our way in recent games then it’s a whole different ball game altogether. It’s another three or six points and we’re up the table. 

“It was really important that we came away with something, especially now with one eye looking forward to Cardiff at home on Saturday. 

“Hopefully we can push on and three points against them would be a step in the right direction.”
