Bolton Wanderers’ fight to stay in League One is well and truly on. One of their new additions, Daryl Murphy has said that he is ready to face the challenge head-on.
The Nottingham Post has explained how the striker is wanting to help Bolton climb out of the negative points they are currently on and start ‘the great escape.’
Murphy made his debut against Blackpool on Monday night and was happy with the football he saw. Despite not finding the back of the net himself, the 0-0 draw did show off how far Bolton have come.
The 36-year-old now wants to build off the great performances and turn them into wins. Murphy was out with a calf injury but that was a perfect opportunity for him to analyse how the side have been playing.
Now he knows exactly what he needs to do in order to help out the squad and Keith Hill.
Most players at 36 would be judged. Some would say its too old. Murphy appreciates that but has said he has never had a problem with his fitness. He’s also never had serious injuries, just little knockbacks.
The forward now can’t wait to show what he’s capable of. After Monday night’s performance, I’m sure fans can’t either.
Bolton is obviously under a point deduction at the bottom of the league. Once they get out of that, they then have to get out of the relegation zone. Murphy is hoping for some wins to help with that plan.
He’s also said that it isn’t a nice situation to be in. However, he believes that the transformation Bolton has taken on is brilliant. Now it’s just a matter of winning and it’s something he’s ready to get stuck into.
