Bolton striker makes honest admission after weekend wonder goal



Experienced striker Adam Le Fondre made the difference for Bolton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon with a wonder strike that earned Phil Parkinson’s side a 1-1 home draw against high-flying Fulham. 

Southampton loanee Matt Targett’s first senior goal had put the Cottagers ahead and put them on course for a sixth straight Championship win but Le Fondre’s stunning looping strike ensured that the Whites secured a strong result against a high-flying side for the second week running.

Le Fondre has found gametime hard to come by this season but the departure of top scorer Gary Madine has potentially opened the door for the former Reading man and his stunning strike proved he is keen to take that opportunity.

However, he told the Bolton News that he wanted to leave the club in last month’s January transfer window. He said: “I’ll be honest, last month I was looking to leave. The gaffer spoke to my agent and they agreed I could go if they got the right offer and could get some cover in.

“I wasted time at Wigan in a similar position and I can’t afford to do that now. It didn’t happen but that’s football, I have been given another chance now and hopefully I can make it count.”

The Verdict

Fair play to Le Fondre for being so honest. Lots of players would give a standard response but they’re just happy to have scored but he took the bull by the horns and didn’t dodge the question.

I think he’ll get more game time now Madine has gone and if he keeps getting goals like Saturday’s then it’ll go down well.
