Boltons trener mener spillerne må gjøre mer som Erling Braut Haaland.

Evatt insisterer på at det er viktig at hans spisser forblir tålmodige og ikke faller dypere for å involvere seg – noe han følte Dion Charles og Victor Adeboyejo var skyldige i i løpet av første omgang mot Curzon Ashton i forrige treningskamp.

-It’s about the way we move the ball and occupy defenders to create space – sometimes wide and sometimes centrally. But it’s about continually asking those questions. I think what happens with the players – even Dion and Victor were guilty of it first half – when they haven’t touched the ball for a while, they feel like they need to get involved in the general play, sier Ian Evatt til The Bolton news.

Han sier videre:

-You don’t see that from Haaland, for example. He’s not interested in building, connecting and coming to feet. He wants to be in the box where the magic happens. Sometimes they are so desperate to get involved, but what they need to do is probably be a bit more selfish, stay central and trust that the ball will find them eventually.

Nysigneringen Will Forrester gjorde et positivt inntrykk sist treningskamp, og Evatt mener han passer naturlig for Boltons spillestil.

-Will’s a really technical footballer and suits what we want to do and the way we play. When teams are sacrificing a little bit and almost in a mid to low block, we talk about provoking the press and maybe staying on the ball to wait for somebody to jump – a bit like Brighton do really. Once they do jump, it’s about finding the spare man who they have jumped off. We have done lots of work with that and will continue to work on it, but Will suits the way we want to play, sier Evatt.

Så får vi se om spissene klarer å følge trenerens råd i de neste treningskampene.
