Neil Danns was delighted with his goal against Brentford and admits he is 'loving' life under the new management of Neil Lennon.

Danns opened the scoring in a 3-1 victory over the Bees on Saturday with his first league goal of the season, which was later followed by strikes from Mark Davies and Craig Davies.

Speaking after the game, Danns revealed he was happy to lift the burden on what could have turned into a frustrating afternoon for Bolton - admitting his relief at helping his side to three well-earned points.

"The goal came at an important time for us," Danns told the club's official website. "We'd had a few shots and we were thinking to ourselves 'is it going to come?'.

"Obviously, once I saw it hit the back of the net it was a big relief. I'm just thankful that we could go on from there to take all three points.

"As soon as I hit it, I knew it was going in. I knew I hit it cleanly. Once I lifted my head up it was just a case of whether the keeper could get down to it. As soon as I saw the ball hit the net, it was euphoria for me - I'm delighted to help the boys get the three points.

"It's nice to score but the most important thing was getting the three points. We haven't just won, we've also performed very well and that has been the case for the last three games. I think everyone can see the difference in the side at the minute and everybody is delighted.

"I think the gaffer is stamping his own game on the club. He used to play with a lot of intensity and that is rubbing off on us.

"In training he is intense but in a good way and the boys seem to have taken to it. We're thoroughly enjoying it - it's hard work but we're loving it."
