UK Bolton boss on winning starting to be a 'habit' and Wanderers improvement last minute news
MetiNews.Com - The Trotters have won three games on the bounce in all competitions
Breaking News ! Ian Evatt feels winning is now 'becoming a habit' at Bolton Wanderers and that his side are improving 'fast' but insists there is still a long way to go. The Trotters capped off a great week yesterday in Hertfordshire when they sealed back-to-back wins in League Two and secured three victories in the space of nine days with a 2-1 win over Stevenage. First half goals from Eoin Doyle and Ali Crawford put Wanderers in the driving seat though Tom Pett halved the deficit on the stroke of half-time, but Wanderers were able to see out the second half to claim victory. The Trotters dug in at times after the break to hold out for the three points, which lifted Wanderers to 16th in League Two, but only four points off the play-off in a congested table. And after three victories on the bounce, Evatt feels that winning is starting to become a 'habit' at the Trotters as focus turns to Tuesday evening's match on the road against Scunthorpe United. "All of a sudden, we’ve got everybody back available. I’ve got everyone fit and competing and we look a different team and a different squad when everyone’s available," he said. "But we’re not getting carried away. We’ve got a long, long way to go and we know that and we must focus now on Tuesday because we’ve got another big game at Scunthorpe.
." The first half performance, where Wanderers scored both their goals, was marred only by Pett halving the deficit in a lapse in concentration just before half-time.

But Evatt feels aspects of the victory over the Boro is starting to show what he wants at Bolton, both going forwards and in defence. He said: “I think we can all start to see it now. Some of the interplay, the pace and precision in the counterattacks is fantastic and we’re looking a difficult side to beat. "You have to give yourselves that platform, first and foremost. You have to not lose the game before you can win it and we did that with the way we started the game. "We got ourselves ahead and I’m disappointed with that minute’s concentration because it made things uncomfortable for all of us. But we’ll learn from it and go again."
