Gregg Wylde admits he is ready to make up for lost time when the new season comes around.

Wylde joined Bolton on a free transfer from Glasgow Rangers in March, after the Scottish giants went into administration earlier in the year.

Wanderers needed special dispensation from FIFA before the 21-year-old was able to feature, but that paperwork failed to materialise before the end of the campaign as Bolton were relegated to the Championship.

Wylde has admitted he is disappointed he didn't get the chance to play in the Premier League, but believes an opportunity is there for the taking when the players return to action next season.

"It was disappointing to never get a chance to play a game in the Premier League," Wylde told The Bolton News.

"I was waiting every day to get clearance from FIFA to play. Guys like Chris Eagles and Nigel Reo-Coker kept asking if it was through yet and all I could tell them was 'no'. It was frustrating.

"It would have been hard to get a game when you think of the players in the team. Maybe for me, personally, relegation will give me a better chance to get in the team.

"The manager has let a lot of players go so maybe that opens the door for me and gives me the chance to shine. I'm looking forward to having a really good season and trying to get back up.

"The gaffer has great belief in all of us. We need to be strong and produce for him."
