Neil Lennon has called for his Bolton side to hit a consistent run of form, after watching them beat Cardiff City 3-0 on Tuesday evening.

After a disappointing defeat at Norwich City last Friday, Wanderers returned to winning ways with a comfortable victory over the Bluebirds at Macron Stadium - thanks to a brace of goals from Liam Feeney and a second-half header from Matt Mills.

Speaking after the game, Lennon admitted his players have now shown the standards they are capable of and has challenged them to produce similar displays on a regular basis.

"It's certainly the best we've played since I've been here," Lennon told the club's official website.

"We were up against a very good side in Cardiff who have started well under Russell Slade, who himself is a very good manager.

"There was a good intensity and tempo to our play and we showed some real quality in the final third.

"We finished the game very strongly, which pleased me. Our fitness levels are certainly improving.

"Everyone tonight can be satisfied with their performance.

"The next thing for us is to now be consistent. We can't keeping winning one, losing one. We've set a good standard now and we have to maintain that.

"We've beaten a team that were in the Premier League last season, so the lads know that they have it in them now.

"We had to slightly tweak our team in the second half, with Cardiff bringing on Ravel Morrison. They went to a diamond, so we decided to match them up.

"We decided to put Josh (Vela) in at right-back because we feel he's probably a little bit more mature on the ball at this moment. He was very cultured on the ball and was excellent all evening."
