Dempsey Aims To Build On Big Win

Kyle Dempsey is aiming to keep the feel-good factor going as Wanderers bid to build on their weekend win.

The Whites face Burton Albion at the University of Bolton Stadium tonight (Tuesday) with their momentum restored thanks to Saturday’s epic 3-2 victory at Accrington Stanley.

Three goals inside 20 magical second-half minutes saw Ian Evatt’s men fight back from 2-0 down to earn a first league win in four games.

And Dempsey is looking to stay on a roll when Wanderers bid to build on their impressive home form against the Brewers.

“Saturday was massive,” said the midfield man, one of the driving forces behind a second away win of the campaign which lifted the Whites back into the top six.

“We’d had a couple of bad performances away from home and I think the fans probably thought at 2-0 ‘here we go again’. We haven’t lived up to the expectations of how we can play.

“But something just clicked in the second half and as a team once we got that first goal there was a massive belief and we just delivered what we know we can do.

“We just looked round at each other and gave each other that lift we needed and that belief and as soon as that first goal went in we looked unstoppable.

“That should be a turning point and we’ve got to take that into the next games now.

“You want to build on that. You want to put those big winning streaks together and keep climbing up that league.

“We’ve just got to build on that now, take it into every single game and try to get the three points as often as we can.”

Wanderers were roared home by a superb following at Stanley as they secured a first win at the Wham Stadium.

And Dempsey was full of praise for the backing of the fans, who can now look forward to successive home games against Burton and Oxford United.

“The fans were absolutely massive in that, especially after getting that first goal,” he added.

“Hearing the noise from them drove us on, and then we got the second and the third. Massive credit to the fans, they were outstanding all day.

“As athletes and teammates, we want to win every single game. And there’s that edge where, when we get that second goal, we’re not just going to settle for that.

“You want to give the fans that moment, you want to repay them back for the numbers in which they travelled and the support that they gave us throughout that day.

“We were able to do that through a fantastic goal from Dapo. Just seeing the faces and the reactions in the crowd is why you play football. It’s why you want to repay them back. “
