WANDERERS might have the lucky Batman boxer Ian Evatt to thank after scoring his first campaign championship win at Harrogate

The head coach revealed he wore a pair of special underwear to try to break up the winless start at Bolton – thanks to goals from Eoin Doyle and Nathan Delfouneso at Keepmoat Stadium

George Thomson picked up one for the hosts in the second half for a tense final, but Bolton is set to register a deserved win, much to Evatt’s relief

« I would have tried anything, to be honest, » he said of the Batman printed underwear « Saturday had hurt us all and mentally we were all challenged

« But I had seen a different, more aggressive side for them this week. They were starting to get mad at each other and today it looked like they were playing angry

“Today was never going to be pretty There were times when we played well but the most important thing was for us to get a result

“We fought, we dug, everyone made a change – especially the ones that hadn’t played too much too The three fullbacks were great and handled whatever Harrogate threw at them They do that, put you under pressure, put the ball in the difficult areas and we defended like men and I’m delighted  »

Evatt had been the first Bolton manager to lose his first five games, but insisted the wind would change eventually

“I think you all know me well enough now to know that I’m a confident guy,” he said “I was always convinced it would come because the work we do on the training ground is good But more that keep going, the more nervous you get, no doubt

« I’m really proud of the players because they’ve been seen as the mill for the last few weeks, and that’s the problem, it’s only been a few weeks

“From the time we beat Accrington it’s only about four weeks left, during which time we’ve gone from HMS *** the league to possibly the worst team in Bolton history. But it’s the foot, you have to keep level and believe in the process of what you are doing

Evatt made five changes to the squad, bringing in Harry Brockbank and Ryan Delaney for their first league starts of the season, Jamie Mascoll and Andy Tutte for their full league debuts and skipper Antoni Sarcevic after injury.

“We had to break the cycle,” he said “Einstein said the definition of insanity is to keep things the same and expect different results Sometimes things have to change

« Some of them were left out unduly, others weren’t as good as I would like, but again, this is football, they will come back

« We are a team and a city that are together We apologize for the start we have offered, but it is only in October and there are still 42 league games to go

« I told the players that one win is great, I’m proud, but we need 21 more to have any promotion chance so let’s go. »My teams tend not to play well in September and it’s always a rambling victory that ends it »
