NEIL LENNON’S crisis-stricken Bolton side have plummeted six points from safety at the bottom of the Championship.

And the former Hoops boss saw his team shot down by his ex-Celtic striker Gary Hooper who netted a double in Sheffield Wednesday’s 3-2 win at Hillsborough.
Ironically, Hooper’s winning goal was set up by another former Hoops ace Ross Wallace.
The visitors face a winding-up petition hearing on Monday and are trying to sell players in an attempt to avoid going into administration.
Wednesday’s Portuguese  Head Coach Carlos Carvahal said: “I’m very happy about the victory because it wasn’t easy for us.
“We followed the melody of the opponents in the first-half, but then we put different music on the pitch. In the second half we introduced a little rock.
“I am happy with all the players and we are doing very well. We’re playing attacking football and our fans are very happy with the football we are playing.
“Gary Hooper is doing well, but I think he can do even better in the future.”

Lennon said: “I thought we were excellent and I didn’t think we deserved to lose.

“In the second-half, we had two or three great chances to win the game.
“We were playing against a team who’ve invested a lot and I was very encouraged by the performance.

“There’s a lot of speculation surrounding a lot of our players and it’s not an ideal situation, but we have to raise money soon to keep the club going.”
