Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen has played down talk of his match winning performance against Hull and insists he is happy the team won the game.

The 33-year-old was in superb form as he pulled off a string of superb saves to deny the Tigers an equaliser after Matt Taylor had put Wanderers in front.

But the Finland international, who signed a new four-year deal in the summer, insists he is happy to be praised, but is happier when the team is winning.

"It was a special day because we have got the three points," Jaaskelainen told the club's official website.

"They only had their chances in the last ten minutes. We deserved to be 1-0 up so then it was a case of keeping the clean sheet.

"Sometimes it's the little things that go for you in games. Earlier in the season, the ball might have bounced half a yard their way and their player would have got to it first.

"Because of the way we have been working hard as a team, we probably deserve that bit of luck because those things have not been going our way.

"Hopefully these back-to-back wins are the start of something for us. We have to keep going."
