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