Len­non’s next big chal­lenge is to avoid be­ing a loser

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TAR­GETS: Neil Len­non NEIL LEN­NON has chal­lenged his Bolton side to go through the rest of the cam­paign un­beaten.

Wan­der­ers are 10 points clear of the bot­tom three and 21 adrift of the play-off spots.

But while it ap­pears there is lit­tle to play for, Trot­ters boss Len­non is keen to fin­ish the fi­nal stretch with a flour­ish.

“We’ll try to stay un­beaten to the end of the sea­son and fin­ish it strongly,” he said.

“Then we can re­assess where we are and re­build for next year.”

Len­non reck­ons the first meet­ing be­tween the two clubs was one of the high­lights of his short Bolton reign.

Debu­tant Emile Heskey in­spired a come-frombe­hind vic­tory at the Macron Sta­dium on Box­ing Day as Bolton beat Gary Bowyer’s men 2-1 in front of 23,000 fans – the high­est home gate of the sea­son.

“It was great, the at­mo­sphere was fan­tas­tic,” said Len­non.
