Dougie Freedman: Looking to lead Bolton to the play-offs

Goals from David Ngog and Marcos Alonso in the opening 10 minutes proved enough to win the contest, with victory leaving Freedman's side just two points shy of the top six.

"There are a few games to go and we will try to get over the finishing line," he said.

"We started the game so well and in the first 30 minutes we expressed the talent that we've got and, if we'd have been better at finishing, we would have been four or five up.

"In the second half you then saw a very organised team who could hold out for the win, which is something we weren't at the start of the season.

"I think that teams and even fans of other teams are looking at us as a club facing the right direction and getting better.

"The problem for us is that the games are running out.

"But you can tell by today that we're going somewhere as a team and that we are more than capable of making that final push."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
