Jussi Jaaskelainen has signalled his intention to win silverware with Bolton before he retires.

The Finland international has three years left on his current contract and is hopeful of advancing in the cup tournaments after failing to pick up any major honours during his 12 year stay at the Reebok Stadium.

"My dream with Wanderers is to win something," Jaaskelainen told The Bolton News.

"We are not going to win the league, so it will have to be one of the cup competitions.

"Unfortunately, last season we were knocked out of both cups in the first round so we need to improve on that.

"But we always have a chance and we definitely want a good cup run."

Despite criticism of manager Gary Megson, Jaaskelainen believes the current Wanderers boss holds more respect for the competitions than former chief Sam Allardyce, who guided the club to the final of the League Cup in 2004.

"Under Big Sam we never went for the cups really. They were second behind the league.

"But Megson wants to go for the cups and hopefully we will have a good run."
