Iredale Hails Winning Mentality

Jack Iredale is aiming to build on his unbeaten start as Wanderers seek a hat-trick of home wins.

The Whites face Morecambe on Tuesday night with two wins out of two at the University of Bolton Stadium so far this term.

Ian Evatt’s men have been beaten only once at home since early January – claiming a dramatic late equaliser against the Shrimps in March keep the run going.

And summer signing Iredale is determined to play his part in enhancing a record that is helping drive Wanderers on.

“We want to be a team that wins games and if you can’t win the game, then don’t lose,” said the defender, who was a key part of the back line that helped the 10-man Whites draw 0-0 at Port Vale on Saturday.

“The gaffer is making a point of instilling a winning mentality into us.

“He talks about the record this team has had in the last 25 games.

“They’ve only lost three and that’s something we look to continue.

“We want to go into every game thinking we can win the game and tonight is no different.”

Iredale operated as a wing-back and a more orthodox left-back at Vale Park as Wanderers dug deep to remain undefeated since the start of the campaign.

The 26-year-old has been an excellent fit since his arrival from Cambridge United and a debut in the Whites’ first win of the season against Wycombe.

And Iredale believes the strength and versatility of the Wanderers’ squad will be key to build on a solid start.

He added: “One of the boys said today that we’ve still got five games to play this month.

“That shows how busy it is with the Saturday-Tuesdays.

“But with the depth in the squad we have, it’s really important that everyone’s ready to come on and impact the game, whether they’re starting or on the bench.

“I think so far this season, you’ve seen it doesn’t matter who’s playing you’re going to get a similar standard out of everyone.”
