Ian Evatt felt Lloyd Isgrove was 'outstanding in the win over Scunthorpe United and praised the Bolton Wanderers winger's 'unselfish team performance'.

Isgrove started on the right flank of the attack in the victory over the Iron.

The winger was one of several players who impressed against Scunthorpe, putting in a number of crosses and also teeing up Bolton captain Antoni Sarcevic who came off the bench to score Wanderers' second goal in the 2-0 victory.

Eoin Doyle converted from the penalty spot after Nathan Delfouneso went down under Jacob Bedeau's first half challenge to put Bolton in front.

There were several eye catching performances in the victory, where Wanderers kept a clean sheet.

Evatt believes not conceding is the platform for Bolton to build upon with the firepower they have at their disposal.

And he felt Isgrove did the 'ugly side' of the game well with his contribution to the counterpressing tactic Bolton employed.

Evatt said: "It's the platform for everything and if we can keep clean sheets, with the attacking players we've got, both starting and on the bench, we're likely to score goals.

"The back four and the keeper have been excellent but it's a group effort. The counterpress was excellent tonight and I thought the way we pressed the ball was brilliant with the energy.

"Lloyd Isgrove was outstanding with an unselfish team performance doing the ugly side of the game for the team with that hard work. I thought he was outstanding.

"We're pleased. We'll enjoy tonight again because to repeat, we've suffered, but tomorrow back to work, back concentrated on a big game on Saturday."

And Evatt explained he is not just pleased with those Wanderers players who are part of the matchday squad right now and getting minutes, but those players who are not part of the 18 or being unused substitutes.

He feels they are all encouraging one another as Wanderers continue their march up the League Two table.

He said: "I'm really pleased with them all. Not just the ones in the team and on the bench, it's the ones that aren't playing at the moment.

"Their attitude - Ryan Delaney, Brandon Comley, Lukas Jensen who has come in, young Jacko (Ben Jackson) who has come out of the team, Tuttey (Andrew Tutte) - they're all encouraging each other and they're really pushing each other to get the rewards that we want to have a big finish to this season, but we've got a long, long way to go."
