Smiles returned to the Bolton Wanderers dressing room – Neil Lennon

16 December 2015

Bolton Wanderers' boss Neil Lennon says the team's dressing room was a happier place after they drew 2-2 with Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Trotters fought back from a two-goal deficit to take a point and, although they remain bottom of the table, Lennon says the mood among his players was brighter.

“There were so many good things to come out of it [the match],” he said.

“There's a few smiles in the dressing room for the first time in a while, because they played really well.

“They showed great character and I thought our first-half performance, particularly going forward, was fantastic.”

The Addicks led through an Ademola Lookman brace, but Emile Heskey sparked Bolton's comeback with his first goal in almost a year, just after the half-hour mark. Wanderers Academy graduate Josh Vela then bagged the equaliser before the interval.

The visitors failed to claim their first league victory since September, but boss Lennon remained upbeat. Watch the full interview below.
