Bolton boss Ian Evatt believes it is 'exciting' that there is more to come from his Wanderers team and feels that the more confident his side gets, the more they will cause teams in League Two problems.

The Trotters are in a rich vein of form at present with four wins on the bounce in all competitions.

Three of these have come in League Two and have seen them take nine points off Salford City, Stevenage and most recently against Scunthorpe United.

The trio of results have taken Wanderers to 13th in League Two and three points from the play-offs in a congested table.

Evatt feels recent results have helped to breed confidence in the Wanderers camp, but believes there is more to come from his side as the campaign progresses.

He said: “Of course, results matter and they change morale, they help with morale and they help with confidence.

"But again, the way we work and the way we’ve trained all season to be honest has been very good and I know what they’ve got in their locker and there’s still loads more to come and that’s the exciting thing for me.

"There’s so much more improvement to come, but we’re starting to see it now and get results regularly on a Saturday and a Tuesday night and that’s what important for the supporters and for us as a football club as a whole because we’ve lost too many games in recent history, this football club’s been used to losing.

"We’re having to change that mindset and mentality now. But it’s nice to get a run of victories together but we’re not getting carried away. We need to focus now on Saturday."

Wanderers are back in action this Saturday at the University of Bolton Stadium against League Two's bottom club Southend United.

Evatt insists the Trotters are not getting carried away with their recent run of results, but believes as confidence continues to grow within the camp, the potential to cause teams greater problems will increase.

He said: “I think the more confident we get, we’ll hurt teams even more. I think we can be better with the ball still. The pleasing thing for me at the minute is our counterpress and our work ethic without the ball.

"When we get with the ball right, we’re going to be a handful for most teams but we’ve still got a long way to go. We’re not getting carried away.

"We give Southend our full focus and attention for Saturday now."
