Marlon Fossey reveals the aims of his loan spell at Bolton Wanderers

Fulham academy graduate Marlon Fossey is currently spending the second half of the season away from the Cottagers and with Ian Evatt’s Bolton Wanderers.

It is the 23-year-old’s second loan spell in League One after making nine appearances for Shrewsbury Town in the first half of last term. Fossey excelled for the Fulham U23 side in Premier League 2 earlier this campaign and will be hoping to carry on that form at The UniBol.

Fossey explained that he is hoping to use the spotlight on him at Bolton to stake a claim for a call-up to the USA national team when he spoke to The Bolton News.

He said: “I have definitely got eyes on getting myself back into that international scene. You have got the World Cup coming up and I want to play at the highest level. I will see what I can do.

“Bolton is a big club and there will be eyes on this team. I think from what you guys achieved last year (promotion from League Two), everyone on the outside will still not be comfortable around this team. This is still a side that can rise up the ranks, as they showed last year. We are hoping to do that again this year, at least to the play-offs, and then we will see what happens.”

Gethin Jones’ injury has really hit Bolton hard this season and the signing of Fossey should go some way to filling that void. Bolton’s style of play may have made them an attractive destination from Fulham’s point of view and in that Fossey could be a real force marauding forward from right back in the coming months.

The Verdict

Tom White?

Bolton’s recent run has been extremely concerning and if they are unable to stop the rot they will hurtle towards a return to League Two. The Trotters have won just two of their last 12 league games, with the gap between them and the bottom four shrinking to just three points, and those victories have been against the current bottom pair in Doncaster Rovers and Crewe Alexandra.

Evatt will have his eye on a handful of extra targets to bolster his squad this month, if the Trotters can get back to the performance levels they showed at the beginning of the season, coincidentally with Gethin Jones a driving force in the side, then they will have no problem pulling away from the drop conversation. However, it could get worse before it gets better looking at the team’s recent trajectory.
