Their recent surge up the League Two table has caught the attention of former striker Adam Le Fondre.

Now plying his trade in India with Mumbai City, the 34-year-old striker has revealed his promotion hope for Bolton. Speaking with the Manchester Evening News, Le Fondre said he hopes and believes the club can challenge for promotion, saying:

“I don’t see, with the squad they’ve assembled, how they can’t be at least pushing for play-offs. It seems as if they’ve turned a corner and are [pushing for the play-offs].

“What would be better than getting promotion? It’s something that the fan base would deserve and love due to everything they’ve been through in recent years. I hope they do it. I hope they do get promoted they deserve success, the fans.

“They’ve had a rough ride of it for a while and I think a little bit of success would go a long way.”
