The Bolton Wanderers striker David Ngog has said that he is still confident that the club can get promotion back into the top flight despite making a poor start to the season. As a result of the poor start made to the new season under Owen Coyle, Bolton were close to the relegation zone at the start of the season rather than near the top of the table. This led to the sacking of the manager midway through the campaign, while he has been replaced by Dougie Freedman. Under the new manager, results have been extremely good and Bolton are just seven points below the play-off position now.
Due to this, the Frenchman David Ngog has said that he still has the faith that Bolton will be able to qualify for the Premier league to the play-off position. The club desperately need to get back into the top flight as soon as possible due to the significant debts that threaten to put the club in grave danger. The club has already gone a major restructuring in terms of the players and wages. More are expected to come in the way they do not get promotion to the top flight, which will guarantee more than £ 60 million per season in extra income alone.
“We are ambitious and we want to be at the top of the league but it won’t be easy. There are a lot of games over the next two weeks. We have to work hard and prepare well to get as many points as we can. In this league it is really tight. There are a lot of teams in the same area, so of course, we still believe in it (promotion). It won’t be easy and we have to be prepared but we are confident we can do it,” said David Ngog.
