NEIL LENNON insists the 3-1 win over MK Dons will see Bolton climb to safety in their battle against relegation.
The cash-stricken Wanderers are still five points adrift of the safety zone, but the former Celtic boss thinks they are poised for an upsurge in fortune.
He said: “It was a must-win game and players responded brilliantly. I have nothing but praise for them.
“I have never stopped believing we can get out of trouble.
“MK Dons might not be one of the superior teams in the division, but there was a lot of pressure on us going into the game and the players handled it very well under the circumstances.
“What we got was two halves of attacking football and we could have won more comfortably.

“It would have been a travesty had we dropped points on the chances we created and the way we played. Hopefully, it is a platform to build on.”

Lennon’s players ended a tough week on a high note as they registered only their THIRD Championship win of the season.
The Irishman and his coaches held a whip-round during the week to help pay administrative staff at the financially-troubled club who are subject of a winding-up petition from HMRC and £172.9million in debt.
Raging MK Dons boss Karl Robinson tore into his players after their flop performance.
He fumed: “We weren’t good enough. We looked lethargic, second to every ball, bullied in areas of the pitch and the only one who came out with any credit was Jake Forster-Caskey.
“Bolton have got a better squad than us, they have played at a higher level with players who have achieved a lot of things.

“When they fancy it and when they get the first goal, it’s a difficult place to play. And we allowed them to get at it.

“We started slowly and sluggish and the players need to look at themselves.”
