Interviews

“It was a no brainer really, when the manager spoke to me and said Bolton were interested, I said yes straight away” – Brandon Fleming’s first interview as a Bolton player.

22 January 2020

Brandon Fleming joined Bolton last week on loan from Hull until the end of the season.

Fleming, 20, has already had a taste of Championship and FA Cup action with his parent club this season but has been sent out on loan in order to get regular first team action.

He said: “The Championship is a tough league and Hull is a tough team to get in with the quality we’ve got so to come here and cement my place at left-back will give me a lot to learn.”

The full-back has already made one appearance for the Trotters, playing 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat against Portsmouth at the weekend.

About the game, the 20-year-old said: “It’s exactly what I wanted (90 minutes) their keeper has pulled off some good saves and on another day we would’ve got something out of the game.”

Fleming also commented on working with manager Keith Hill and the coaching staff saying: “They demand from the players, I want to be pushed everyday to try and get the best out of myself and I think that’s what they’ll do for me.”

Since joining, the Hull-born player praised his teammates for the way they have welcomed him in.

“I’m getting to know the lads a bit more now. They’ve made it a lot easier for me as it’s daunting going to a new changing room.

“I’m happy with the way they’ve welcomed me in”

Bolton face an uphill battle to stay in the league this year but Fleming says the mood in the camp is still positive.

He said: “I’ll fight to the end and I know the rest of the lads will too. We’ll take each game as it comes and give 100%.”
