The end of the season is coming ever closer and every point we play for is precious as we pursue our push for promotion.
Draws against Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon in each of our last two home games are not the worst results and there are very encouraging signs performance wise, but with matches running out we need to get back on the winning track.
I have every confidence that we will get promoted but, as Andy Taylor said in his post-match comments, it is time for every Bolton Wanderers player to stand up and be counted.
We have got the squad, we have got the talent and we have got that burning ambition to go back up.
As the manager made reference to, the performance against Wimbledon was an improvement on recent weeks and we are trying to find our rhythm once again.
Hopefully, Jay Spearing’s injury lay-off won’t be as long as initially feared and he will be back pulling the strings in midfield for the final push.
Our fans have played their part and have backed us to the hilt. As I have mentioned on many occasions, they have been our twelfth man – and I can think of no finer example than against Scunthorpe United on New Year’s Eve.
The atmosphere on that day was exceptional and was a crucial factor in us grabbing that memorable last minute victory against one of our promotion rivals.
We have four more league games left at Macron Stadium and with your support we will get over the line.
But it’s not only at home, where we need you. Our travelling Super White Army has been immense, impressive and is a credit to the club.
It’s important that you continue to follow us all over the country for our final run-in. There are some midweek, long-distance games against Gillingham, Southend and Oxford on the horizon and I know that you will be there in numbers and singing your hearts out for the team.
It’s a great shame that we were unable to have more tickets for our game against Fleetwood Town this Saturday, but I know that every one of you there will be 100% behind the manager and the players.
They have enjoyed a great run of form recently which has put them in contention for promotion, but I know that on our day we are capable of getting the right result.
