THE scene is set for a Wanderers hero to emerge at Burton Albion this weekend – and Adam Le Fondre would love nothing more than to land the role.

Phil Parkinson takes his team to the Pirelli Stadium knowing victory could secure Championship survival for another season, and at the very least put them in the driving seat on the final weekend.

But after a run of six winless games the Whites are in desperate need of inspiration – and fans’ favourite Le Fondre is happy to shoulder the responsibility.

“It’s time to make heroes and I’d like that to be me – but I don’t mind if anyone steps forward and helps keep us up,” he told The Bolton News.

“It’s a big game but, if I’m being honest, I don’t feel pressure. That might be different at three o’clock on Saturday but I can’t see it anything other than another game right now.

“Score, win, that’s what I want to do. By hook or by crook, we need to win that game on Saturday.”

Wanderers have already fought back from a seemingly unassailable position this season but have allowed their form to drift since the international break, taking one point from the last six games.

“Everyone wrote us off,” Le Fondre said. “If people had said after 11 games that we’d be a place above relegation then people would have been buzzing.

“But because we’ve done so well, the expectation has been a bit too much. I think we’ve reverted back to where we were realistically aiming.

“There has been criticism because of how well we did. As a group we know it hasn’t been the standard we’d set. It isn’t easy to snap out of that. I think there have been spells we’ve played well but we have allowed goals to affect us. That I think we can change.

“As a team we have to fight. It’s a cliché, fair enough, but it’s what we have to do.

“The gaffer won’t have a difficult team-talk. We know what’s at stake.”

Le Fondre missed the 1-0 defeat at the Macron back in December through illness but boasts an enviable scoring record against Burton, netting five times in his five meetings with them.

“To help keep Bolton up it would be one of my best achievements in football,” he said.

“It would justify my statement that when I play I’ll score goals, no matter what level of football it’s at.”
