Bolton keeper eye safety
March 30, 2012
In-form Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Adam Bogdan believes his side will avoid the drop despite the disappointment of tumbling out of the FA Cup on Tuesday.
Bolton boosted their survival hopes with a crucial 2-1 victory over fellow strugglers Blackburn Rovers last weekend but backed that up with a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in their rearranged FA Cup quarter-final tie.
Bogdan was a one-man last line of defence at times – keeping Spurs at bay until late on with a string of high-class saves. The man-of-the-match award was no consolation after their cup exit and fans of Bet Victor will know this.
“I feel very disappointed at being out of the cup. But this is the situation we are in now and we have to focus on the Premier League,” said the Hungarian stopper.
“If we show this fighting spirit for the last few games, then we can make it.”
Bogdan was pleased with his own performance but was keen to downplay the importance, especially since the evening ended in defeat.
“The pressure kept coming and in the end we couldn’t keep them out. Was it my best game for Bolton? Maybe people who keep the records can say,” added Bogdan.
“It was nice the Spurs players congratulated me but they had gone through so it made it easier for them.”
Bolton’s attentions now turn to a crucial six-pointer at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and people looking at the www.betvictor.com odds will know the importance of this game.
Bolton have improved of late in the Premier League – winning back-to-back games to pull away from the drop zone. Owen Coyle’s side sit one place and one point above the bottom three with a game in hand on their rivals.
They take on a Wolves side with just one win in 16 games and in dreadful form at Molineux.
Bolton and Bogdan have a perfect opportunity to put the cup disappointment behind them.
