Jacob Butterfield believes it is only a matter of time before Bolton begin to climb the Championship table, following the 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night.

Wanderers currently occupy 17th position in the Championship, but sit just seven points behind 5th placed Millwall ahead of Saturday's game against Ipswich Town.

Butterfield, who is on a one-month loan from Norwich City, produced his best performance in a Bolton shirt in the success at Ewood Park and he believes the players showed exactly why they will soon climb up the table.

"The fans will be buzzing," Butterfield told the club's official website. "Coming to Blackburn, the local derby, and putting on a performance like that and getting the win was fantastic.

"With the kind of players we have, we should be right up there. We are confident that we can put on this kind of performance and get a real good winning run and move up the league. I am sure that by the end of the year we will be right up there.

"Personally, during my time here, I hope to get more wins and get more points on the board for Bolton. I have really enjoyed my time here so far.

"I have been really impressed by the club as a whole. They are a great group of lads and I have really enjoyed playing here.

"I think we came out and dominated the game. We got a great start with the early goal. I think that, in the first half, we dominated the game and played some good stuff. Overall it was a really enjoyable game.

"We probably should have gone in more than just the one goal up, but we managed to get the second goal, and, naturally, as the game wore on, they started to throw balls into the box. They got one back but we fully deserved the win.

"I think we have talented players here who like to get onto the ball and play. Sometimes it is difficult, but we are all confident in the way we play.

"We created a lot of chances and should have probably scored more goals, but it was a real enjoyable performance."
