Evatt Hails Fan Power

Boss praises special connection as fans enjoy big night out in London

29 September 2021

Ian Evatt lauded the travelling fans who were singing in the rain as their side turned on the style in London.

Almost 1,000 Wanderers’ supporters were at The Valley to see Evatt’s men come from behind to beat Charlton Athletic with three second-half goals.

The treble came in front of a joyous away end who ignored the elements to salute the Wanderers’ players and staff after a superb performance which brought goals from Dapo Afolayan, Kieran Lee (two) and skipper Antoni Sarcevic in a 4-1 win which lifted the Whites up to seventh in the League One table.

“It was magnificent support and they must all have electric cars because I don’t know how they got here without fuel!” said a delighted Evatt.

“The connection between the club and them is there for all to see. We’re extremely proud of them and we thank them for their support.

“It’s very important to us and hopefully they’re very proud of what we’re achieving on the football pitch.”

After taking close to 2,000 fans to Sunderland last Saturday and almost half that to south-east London, Wanderers are proving a collective force.

And Evatt is looking forward to more of the same as Wanderers return home to face Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

The Bolton boss added: “It’s another big game – another difficult game. The lads probably won’t get home until half-three, four o’clock in the morning.

“It’s about resting, recuperation, doing the right things and going again on Saturday.

“Hopefully we’ll have a fantastic crowd at the UniBol and we’ll try and win that game as well.”
