Good right across the park - Neil Lennon

Manager happy with pre-season workout at Oldham

Neil Lennon says he was happy with what he saw from his side during Bolton Wanderers’ comfortable pre-season victory at Oldham on Tuesday evening.

First-half goals from Liam Feeney and Gary Madine secured victory at Boundary Park, the Trotters’ first of the current pre-season programme.

And speaking after the game the manager admitted he was happy with his team from front to back.

Lennon told “I felt we were very good, particularly in the first half. Our attacking play was of high quality and we could have scored four or five.

“Naturally, in the second half when a few substitutions are made the flow of the game is affected, but that’s part of where we are right now.

“We tweaked the system a little bit to see if we could be more of an attacking threat and we certainly were.

“I didn’t see any weaknesses out there tonight, we were good right across the park. It was a very pleasing exercise.

“Tom Walker went off with a bit of a thigh strain, which was the one down side from the night. He felt he could start the game, but just felt a little niggle. Hopefully it isn’t too serious.

Wanderers are next in pre-season action on Friday evening, travelling across the Pennines to face Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

And the manager concluded by admitting he was happy with the progress being made in pre-season to date.

“We’re very pleased with the quality of opposition we’ve played so far,” he added. “We had some tough opposition in Austria and that set us up for our games back in England. 

“We were disappointed with the performance at Morecambe on Friday, but we’ve come back and done well this evening.”
