Dougie Freedman confident Bolton Wanderer’s season on track as they hunt first back-to-back wins

By Sam Ruffe

With only one loss in nine games, Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman insists his side have found their groove as they travel to Peterborough United this weekend.

The Trotters jumped to 13th place in the Championship table last week as two second-half goals from David N’Gog saw off Charlton Athletic.

With the busy Christmas period approaching, Freedman is confident his team can continue the promising form of late.

“We are starting to play a certain style and a structure that we can build from and I am looking forward to every game we play,” said Freedman.

“I am looking forward to us playing good football week in, week out as I think that we are getting settled and that we are beginning to understand each other.

“We are setting our stall out to hopefully be hard to beat and showing teams that we are able to express our talent moving forward.”

Bolton head to London Road looking to notch up their first back-to-back league wins of the season.

Midfielder Mark Davies is unavailable after undergoing shoulder surgery, while defender Matt Mills is sidelined until the New Year.

Although Peterborough sit at the foot of the Championship table, Freedman insists Darren Ferguson’s Posh will be no push-over.

“I have watched two or three Peterborough games this week and they are certainly performing,” said the Scot.

“They played very well at Charlton and they were unfortunate to lose that game.

“They beat Cardiff at the weekend, against a team I think will get promoted this year, so you can’t take them lightly and we have to make sure that we are fully prepared for what they can bring to the table.”
