Bolton Wanderers have done well under Ian Evatt this season.
Although the play-offs have proved to be a step too far for Bolton this year, they finished the season ninth in the league and only ten points away from sixth.
Looking at their results this season, it is against the top sides in the league that Bolton have struggled against.
Looking ahead to next season, MJ Williams recognises that the league will only get harder with the introduction of Derby County, Peterborough and Barnsley but has faith in his side to push forward as he told The Bolton News: “We finished ninth this season and probably the points that we got would probably get you in the play-offs most seasons.
“But there are some really big teams in that league, and it is really important next season that we really push on now and compete against the big teams.
“We know we can. We know we have got everything here going for us – the fans, the club, it’s an amazing club to be at, the manager, Sharon the owner who has been absolutely brilliant with all of us, the staff we’ve got and then obviously the players.
“We’ve got a great group of lads there so I’m sure we’ll have a good season next season if we can do that.”
Williams also feels as though the atmosphere around the club can help Bolton achieve more next season as he said: “On Saturday you could see when we are scoring goals, we were all celebrating together, the fans were right behind us now and that’s the main thing.
”We’ve just got to keep together and all the lads have said that next season is going to be a massive one for us.”
Bolton have done well this season and came so close to the play-offs so it gives them a good foundation to build off for next season.
The league will continue to be tough with three good teams from the league above entering it but there is no reason Bolton can’t compete.
MJ Williams has spoken about the togetherness at the club and it can’t be underestimated how much this will have a a part to play in any success they have next season.
However, Evatt will also have to make sure he makes the suitable additions to his squad over the summer to make sure they are able to compete at a bit of a higher standard.
