Wanderers wing-back Jack Iredale is keen to get back to winning ways against Crewe Alexandra after a tough week.

Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Plymouth Argyle came on the back of home defeats against Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa.

Iredale reckons there is no need to panic but wants to build a habit of winning matches – starting against the Railwaymen.

“We want to win games,” he said. “Winning is the best habit that we can have as a football a club and after the tough week that we have had, it is a chance to put it right.

“I think as a club we have probably had the most difficult start to the fixtures out of anyone.

“It is still August, we have got such a long way to go and get so much better. We are definitely not panicking but we know that we need to start getting results on the board.”

The 26-year-old has been used at wing-back early in his Bolton career despite playing at centre-back at times for Cambridge last season.

“I feel comfortable there, I have played there before,” he added. “I have played left wing before and I have played left-back, so it is just about combining all those and also adapting to the tactical changes.

“I think I am quite versatile. The information that I get from the sidelines also makes it really clear what my roles and responsibilities are. And obviously with every game and each situation, I am learning as well.

“I am learning about the players around me. Consistency helps, but at the same time there are so many good players in this team.

“The gaffer has got the ability to bring players out and bring players in, and not much of the quality will chance.

“That is a real positive for our squad and you need to make sure that when you are in, you are performing. Otherwise, you will be out.”

Iredale was one of several new arrivals at the UniBol over the summer and says the style of play, as well as the size of the club, made it an easy decision to join.

“I am enjoying it, I am getting game time. I’m still learning but I feel part of the group and I am looking forward to the season ahead as well,” the wing-back explained.

“The style of play, [it is a] massive club obviously and to work under the coaching staff here and to play with the players the club has got.

“There were a massive number of reasons why I chose to come here and I am happy I did.”
