Dougie Freedman sees green shoots of recovery at Bolton Wanderers
AFTER finally ridding himself of a winless league record, Dougie Freedman has immediately set his sights on restoring Wanderers’ home form.
Five games at the Reebok have yielded just three points this season – a far cry from the eight wins on the bounce between February and May that took the Whites to the fringes of the play-offs.
Confidence has slowly returned to the team in their last two away outings at Blackpool and Birmingham, and though the process of getting Wanderers back on track has been a taxing one for the manager, he feels the team are close to getting it right.
“I’ve been here nearly a year but it sometimes feels like 10,” he admitted. “Fans are seeing parts of the jigsaw I’m trying to put together and I know it is taking time.
“But we have got three out of the next four games at home and if we can get some form of consistency then I will be a lot happier.
“I look at the last 10 minutes of the last home game against Yeovil, at Blackpool and now Birmingham – we are turning this round. We are working toward being a Championship side I would like to watch.
“Bit by bit it will take shape and I have every confidence it will turn round for us.”
