Ken Anderson: 'It's Incredible What They've Achieved'

Ken Anderson has paid tribute to all involved at Bolton Wanderers, after they won promotion to the Championship at the first attempt.

After 46 games, Wanderers secured their place in the second-tier next season with a 3-0 victory over Peterborough United on the final day of the campaign.

Anderson admits life hasn't all been plain sailing since his joint-takeover, alongside Dean Holdsworth, from Eddie Davies in March 2016, and he believes the club has been rewarded for a season of hard work on the field, off the field and in the stands.

"It's been a challenge from the beginning," Anderson told BBC Radio Manchester.

"The desire of the players, the management coming in, all the staff and the supporters getting behind us - we did it! It's just beginning to sink in that we've actually done it.

"When I look back to a year ago, I remember the last game of last season was against Fulham. I looked at the terraces and saw the various banners and flags. It was doom and gloom - 'no effort, no passion' - and I think the players have come out this season and delivered.

"They had the desire to win, put the application there and, there have been a few ups and downs, at the end of the day we've delivered.

"Considering the amount of injuries we've had, and serious injuries where players were out for virtually all of the season, it's incredible what they've achieved."
