Vic Aims To Stay In The Groove

Victor Adeboyejo celebration

Victor Adeboyejo is hungry to build on his goal-scoring start to the season and keep Wanderers firing on all cylinders.

Adeboyejo wasted no time getting off the mark when he headed home one of Wanderers’ goals in their opening-day 3-0 win over Lincoln City a week ago.

And he hopes that’s the first of many in a Wanderers’ shirt this campaign after 13 of his 16 goals last season came for Burton Albion prior to his January switch to the Whites.

“It’s been a good week. You want to be in a team that’s winning. That’s the most important thing. We’re winning and the vibe in the camp is very good,” said Adeboyejo.

“You want to score goals. That’s what you’re in the team to do and I’m happy that I’m contributing in that way. Long may it continue.

“You’ve got to go better than you did last season. I finished with 16 goals last season and I’ve got to go again and try and better that. Hopefully I can do that in Bolton colours.”

Adeboyejo came off the bench in Wanderers’ mid-week Carabao Cup win over Barrow as boss Ian Evatt made eight changes to his starting line-up.

Dan Nlundulu and Cameron Jerome took on the striking roles, with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson not far off also being fit enough to challenge for a place.

Evatt also handed full debuts to summer signings Carlos Mendes Gomes and Paris Maghoma as Wanderers secured a second-round tie against Middlesbrough.

And Adeboyejo believes the assets they will add to the Whites’ squad – and the competition for places up front – will boost Wanderers’ challenge in League One as they head for a first away game of the season at Cheltenham today (Saturday).

 “They are really good players. That’s what you want as an attacker, to be able to make a run and know there are people that are going to be able to find you,” Adeboyejo added.

“The quality we had in the team before and the ones the gaffer has added has been very good to us as attackers and as a team in general to go that step further.

“Our main goal is to get promoted, so however that needs to come that’s how it’s going to come.

“If it’s me playing, if it’s Dan, if it’s Jon. Whoever it is. Your aim is to score and impact the team. That’s what we’re going to do and that’s what we’re going to keep doing.”
