Goal-scorer Bradley's A Happy Wanderer

Conor Bradley is loving life with Wanderers and delighted to have his best pal along to join the ride.

Bradley continued his excellent start with the Whites with a third goal of the season to help Ian Evatt’s men come from behind and beat Charlton Athletic 3-1 in a top-notch display.

The on-loan Liverpool wingback – who moved level with Dion Charles as the Whites’ joint top scorer thanks to his first-half equaliser – has quickly become a firm favourite at the University of Bolton Stadium.

And he could soon by joined on the pitch by Anfield team-mate and big buddy Owen Beck, who is working his way up to full match fitness after also joining on a season-long loan from the Reds ahead of the transfer deadline.

“It’s been brilliant so far since being here,” said Bradley – an ever-present in Wanderers’ League One campaign.

“The lads have been great and it’s all going well. I’ve loved every minute just playing in front of the fans.  Every week is unbelievable, so may this continue.

“It’s brilliant to have Owen here. We’ve been best pals really since I came to Liverpool so to have him here is obviously very good and, hopefully, he can start playing as soon as possible. I’m sure the lads will love him as well.”

The arrival of Beck will give Wanderers’ boss Ian Evatt another option in the left-wing back role once the 20-year-old has found his feet.

Iredale again filled that slot impressively against the Addicks and it was a combination between Iredale and Bradley that launched the fightback towards a first win in three league games as the Whites backed up their mid-week PJT Trophy win to move up to eighth in the table.

“It was a good three points, and it was a good reaction from the boys, from going 1-0 down to getting two goals before half-time,” added Bradley.

“Me and Jack speak about that [run in the box]. Whenever he gets a chance to cross it he wants me at that back post. Thankfully, I was in there today and it landed to me and I tucked it away.

“When I signed that’s what the gaffer wanted me to do. He told me I can get loads of goals playing at wing-back, which is why I get into the box and try and take some chances.

“That’s what I’m doing at the moment and hopefully it continues.

“Last week was difficult, with three tough games. It’s just good to get back to winning ways. It’s two wins this week, so definitely going back in the right direction.”
