Wheater has faith in Wanderers


Bolton defender David Wheater insists the squad won't sulk after falling to a fifth consecutive defeat on Saturday.

The Lancashire outfit returned to the second tier this term but they have found it hard to cope with the restrictions placed on their access to the transfer market.

Bolton boast just two points from their opening eight league matches in 2017-18, having picked up back-to-back draws against Millwall and Birmingham, while they have since lost five successive games in the Championship.

However, Wheater insists the squad still have faith in boss Phil Parkinson and claims they are ready to put in the hard work to get back on track following Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Ipswich.

Wheater said: “This team is full of great lads, we’ll go back into training and work hard. No-one will sulk because it isn’t the right way to go about it.

“Everyone will listen to the manager and his coaches, try and take that into the games and once we get those first few points, hopefully we can get on a run.

“We were like that last year, going on little runs where we didn’t win, but then you get one game – like Fleetwood – and we were off on a run to promotion.

“We just need that one win, or even a draw, and go from there.”
