Dougie Freedman was delighted with the response his side showed, after bouncing back from successive defeats to beat Doncaster Rovers 3-0.

After losing to Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town over the course of the last seven days, Wanderers recorded their biggest win of the season on Saturday afternoon - thanks to goals from Joe Mason, Andre Moritz and Neil Danns.

Speaking after the game, Freedman admitted he was delighted with the way his side performed after their recent setbacks and has set them the challenge of keeping a consistent run of form - which recently saw them embark on an eight-game unbeaten run.

"It was a very good performance," Freedman told the club's official website. "We played very well but I am pleased with the way we bounced back from two defeats.

"It is quite hard to take defeats, especially when those defeats come at home so to bounce back in the way that we did is very pleasing.

"We need to have that bounce-back-ability in this division because every game is tough. They threw on a couple of difficult aerial threats but I thought we coped with the pressure very well to keep a clean sheet.

"I have watched Doncaster a few times this season and they are a very good side but I thought it was our day. We controlled possession and we created a number of chances.

"We looked sharp and we took our chances at the right time which always helps, but overall it is a credit to the lads.

"The link up play between the midfield and attack was superb. Andre Moritz is a very intelligent player and today we saw his confidence was growing throughout. He was excellent and Andre is a lovely lad around the dressing room.

"We worked very well as a team and I thought today we looked like a Bolton team that was on top form.

"The big question now and the challenge is for the team to get some consistency. If we can and build momentum then we can climb the league table very quickly. It is a good day and we have sent the fans home happy."
