First-Goal Glee For Sadlier

January signing off the mark with vital goal to propel Whites to victory

23 February 2022

Kieran Sadlier was delighted to score his first goal in a Wanderers’ shirt in a huge 3-1 win over Lincoln City.

And the January signing hopes there will be more to follow after helping fire the Whites to a sixth successive home success.

Sadlier replaced Declan John, who had been suffering from a mild back spasm, at half-time against the Imps.

And the former Rotherham United forward slotted in seamlessly at wing-back before striking a powerful finish into the bottom corner 14 minutes from the end to restore Wanderers’ lead.

“To come on at half time and get the first goal, I’m really pleased,” said Sadlier.

“To get that first goal and have the confidence to go on and score a few more, hopefully.

“It got a little deflection but I was just happy it went in to be honest.

“That’s what I want to do, get goals and assists.

“I think working hard and performing is the main thing and then hopefully the goals will come.”

George Johnston opened the scoring for Wanderers before Cohen Bramall saw his effort deflected past James Trafford to level for Lincoln.

But Sadlier than put Bolton back in front before playing a crucial role once again in finding space for Kyle Dempsey, who cut back for Amadou Bakayoko to prod home his 10th goal of the season and wrap up a seventh win in nine games.

The result lifted Ian Evatt’s men to within five points of the play-off places ahead of Saturday’s trip to high-flying MK Dons.

And Sadlier hopes to keep the Whites’ run going after again showing their collective goal power.

“We just want to keep winning, that’s the most important thing,” he added.

“Out of all the wins we’ve got, that was a big one for us. They made it tough for us.

“But we’re always confident. We’ve got goals all around the teams.

“We’re always going to create chances for each other and it’s just about taking them and we’ve done that.

“I think we’ve got a strong squad now. I’ve come off the bench tonight and got a goal but the goals are spreading around the team a lot and that’s always good.”
