Jaap Stam hopes his side bounce back immediately from a defeat at the weekend, as the squad travel to face Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.


“We matched them all over the pitch… but it’s fine lines!”

Following on from a strong performance but ultimately wrong result against Wolves on Saturday afternoon, the manager wants his players to put that disappointment behind them for the midweek trip to the Macron Stadium.

“Of course the players are disappointed, which is normal, that’s how it needs to be but there’s a game again on Tuesday away to Bolton," Stam said.

“Not an easy game, also a very difficult game but we’re going to go for it and try and get points over there.

“If we work as hard as we did against Wolves, play with the same quality, then hopefully we’ll get a better result on Tuesday."

Wanderers got promoted from League One last season, and after a difficult start to the season they have gone unbeaten in their last six matches.

While Bolton currently sit second-bottom of the table, Stam believes this could be a misleading position for a team in a strong run of form.

“They went up with the quality that they have, they want to do well again in the Championship. It’s a big club, not the easiest of times at the moment but they’re growing into the league as well.

“They’re getting better and better results, you see that when they play, they’ve got certain players with a certain physicality.

“They’ve also got a lot of quality on the ball, they work very hard so it’s not going to be easy to go over there and have a win.

“We respect them, we know their ability and we need to give everything to get a result.”
