GRETAR Steinsson has told Wanderers fans he can get even better.

The Icelandic full-back has arguably been Bolton’s outstanding performer this season.

While some of Gary Megson’s foreign legion have needed time to settle in the Premier League, he has been a huge hit since joining from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in January.

His no-nonsense defending and rampaging burst forward have made him invaluable to the Reebok outfit – and forced right-back rival Nicky Hunt to join Birmingham on loan this week in the search of first-team football.

But Steinsson has assured supporters his – and Wanderers' – best is still to come.

“There’s still more to come from me,” he said, as the Whites look to build on last Sunday’s vital 2-0 victory against Manchester City at Hull tomorrow.

“We’ve played well the last couple of weeks without getting the results we wanted but now’s the time to change that.

“We have the quality and the players and we just need that little but of luck that we got last week.

“If we believe in each other then eventually it will come. They were three massive points and now we have to do it at Hull.”

But Steinsson knows he and his team-mates will have their work cut out at the KC Stadium, where former Wanderers boss Phil Brown has taken the newly-promoted Tigers up to sixth in the table.

But, with third-bottom Bolton just four points off Everton in seventh, the 26-year-old is confident victory against the Premiership's surprise package can transform a difficult start to the new campaign into a good one.

“The table can change so fast at the bottom and at the top,” he said. “Hull have done fantastically and deserve the points they’ve got and it will be a great game on Saturday.

“Phil Brown is an old assistant at Bolton so he will want to get a good result against us, but we know a couple of good results and you can be in the top half.”

Steinsson, famous for living in a garage as he looked to make his way in the Swiss leagues, first came to Wanderers' attention five years ago.

Tipped off by Whites legend and countryman Gudni Bergsson, the defender was invited over for an unsuccessful trial.

But the club kept tabs on him and, in the January transfer window, Megson parted with £3.5million to sign him.

While it proved to be an expensive error of judgement on the Bolton’s behalf, Steinsson is just delighted to have finally been given the chance to prove himself.

He said: “I’m just glad to get the chance to play every week in the strongest league in the world with the club I always wanted to come to.

“I came here on trial years ago and now I have chance to play and I’m really grateful for that opportunity.

“My family and I love it in Bolton and we think it’s fantastic here. Hopefully, I will be at Bolton for many more years to come.”
