Bolton Wanderers boss Keith Hill was full of admiration and praise following his side’s 2-0 win away at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening under the lights.
For the Whites, it’s their first win of the 2019/20 Sky Bet League One campaign, and the long-awaited victory was long overdue considering the positivity surrounding their performances.
“The performances have been good and I’ve been relatively pleased,” said Hill. “It’s all about getting results, and the stigma of not getting results, but a magnificent win tonight, a great performance in adversity.
“The players that have been missing, a special reward for a lot of people tonight winning that game, the supporters, the supporters in the stadium and the supporters all over the world that support Bolton Wanderers. For the families, the new consortium.
“The players have been magnificent, it’s a special feeling winning a game of football, you get that respect, that winner’s respect. It’s a lovely feeling and we want to repeat that, and we want more of it. We’ve been working for that, there’s a lot of work that’s gone on that nobody sees.
“We were so down on Saturday when we got beat, but I was philosophical and I was optimistic when I looked at the centre of the pitch. We found a solution tonight, and the players have stood up, they’ve been magnificent. It was a great performance and hopefully it can phase the type of work that we’ve been doing to build the new size of this football operation, this wonderful football club.”
