BOLTON stop­per Andy Lon­er­gan is des­per­ate to stake his claim for the No.1 jer­sey fol­low­ing Adam Bog­dan’s in­jury.

The 31-year-old has mainly played sec­ond fid­dle to Bog­dan this sea­son, but with the Hungarian bat­tling back from an an­kle in­jury, Lon­er­gan is determined to seize his op­por­tu­nity.

“He’s a great tal­ent and when­ever he’s been out of the team, it’s gen­er­ally been down to in­jury rather than form,” he said. “But that’s why your num­ber two is there – to step in when re­quired to take the chance. Peo­ple also get dropped; that’s part and par­cel of the game and you can't af­ford to get com­pla­cent.”
