JAY SPEAR­ING has hailed the im­pact of new Bolton boss Neil Len­non and be­lieves the Trot­ters are ready to fly up the Cham­pi­onship.

Bolton were too good for Brent­ford at the week­end and Len­non’s side played with the kind of con­fi­dence that was sorely miss­ing un­der for­mer man­ager Dougie Freed­man.

Wan­der­ers are still in the drop zone, but cap­tain Spear­ing in­sists Len­non has trans­formed life at the Macron Sta­dium.

“The boss has come in and given the lads a new lease of life,” he said.

“We know he worked won­ders at Celtic, but he has come to Bolton now and we are a dif­fer­ent set of lads.

“With his back­room staff, they have been tremen­dous. They have given the lads mas­sive belief and the con­fi­dence is slowly com­ing back.

“The train­ing is get­ting quicker and sharper. Touch wood, we’re on the up.

“The lads have been given the free­dom to ex­press them­selves, es­pe­cially go­ing for­ward. It just seems to be fly­ing out of every­body now.”
