Wellington Silva pleased with important point at Wolves

Arsenal loanee delighted to play his part as Wanderers come from behind to draw at Molineux

Wellington Silva was pleased to be back on the scoresheet as Bolton Wanderers drew with Wolves on Tuesday night.

Having found themselves 2-0 behind, the Arsenal loanee’s header set up a grandstand finish at Molineux before Stephen Dobbie’s late free-kick clinched a share of the spoils for the Whites.

One of Bolton’s most impressive performers in recent weeks, Wellington was pleased to have played his part in a spirited team performance in the West Midlands.

“It is a very good point for us,” the Brazilian told bwfc.co.uk after the final whistle. “It’s difficult when you go behind but we worked very hard. We played good and passed the ball around well. 

“I like being on the ball and when I get the opportunity, I like to use skill, dribble or pass to attack towards the goal and run at the other team. 

“I am very happy to have scored but I am even happier that we came back to get the point. It is very important for the club and now we want to build on that on Saturday as we have another big game.

“It’s been a long time since I last scored so I am happy to get another. God has blessed me and I will continue to work hard going into the next game.”

Confident in his team-mates abilities, Wellington is determined to help the Trotters climb the Sky Bet Championship, starting with Saturday’s game against Rotherham United.

The winger said: “I believe in the club and team and Saturday is now a very good opportunity for us to hopefully go out and get three points. 

“I am very happy here at the club. The club has given me a great opportunity and while I’m here I want to do my best to help the team. 

“I have faith in the team and believe we are good enough to finish higher up the table.

“We are working hard with the manager in training. We need to believe in the team and believe in the players. 

“We have a good team but haven’t had much luck so far this season. We now have 17 big games left and if we keep believing and working hard, I am confident that we can do well.”
