Adam Bogdan happy to be back

The keeper was on the bench against Ipswich on Tuesday after playing for the Under-21s last week

After completing 90 minutes for Bolton Wanderers’ Under-21s last week, Adam Bogdan is targeting a first team return for the Whites between now and the end of the season.

The goalkeeper came through Bolton youngster’s match against Stoke City unscathed following two months on the sidelines, having injured his ankle in training shortly after his man-of-the-match performance at Anfield against Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Bogdan was then named on the bench for Bolton’s trip to Ipswich Town last Tuesday, and now has his sights set on securing a starting berth in Neil Lennon’s side. 

“It’s good to be back,” said the Hungarian international. “We didn’t really plan for me to make my comeback for the Under-21s but it was good to be involved. 

“I really enjoyed the game last week and getting 90 minutes. I thought the lads played really well. We kept the ball well and brought it out from the back. It was really good and enjoyable.

“I try not to think about the injuries too much. It’s not ideal but it is part of the game and could have been a lot worse to be fair. It’s been frustrating but I’m glad to be back fit now.”

Bogdan continued: “The main goal is to get back in the first team. I haven’t played for the first team as much as I would have liked this year because of injuries. 

“Hopefully that is behind me now and I can play as many games as possible between now and the end of the season.”
