Kieran Lee: 'We Can't Keep Saying We've Played Well'

Kieran Lee believes it is time for Bolton to stop talking about good performances and back up their words by picking up victories on the pitch.

Wanderers were beaten 1-0 at Lee's former club - Sheffield Wednesday - on Saturday as Lee Gregory scored the only goal in a narrow defeat for the Trotters at Hillsborough.

Speaking after the final whistle, Lee admitted he is happy with his own recent displays and those of the team around him, but says he'd rather be talking about three points rather than another defeat.

"We're all really disappointed," Lee told OfficialBWFC on YouTube.

"We feel like the performance was there again, which seems to have happened a lot this season.

"We've come away with a defeat, yet we've had quite a few chances and feel like we should have put at least a couple of them away. Everyone is disappointed and it's tough to take.

"We've got to a point now where we can't keep saying we've played well because we've come away with nothing. We know we need to start taking the chances we get, try to get the three points and get up the league.

"I'm getting a little run in the team now which I think helps everyone to get a bit of rhythm. I scored a couple of goals the other week, so I feel like things are going well for me personally but obviously I'm really disappointed we've lost today.

"I feel like every game we've been in, I don't think there's been a team where we've felt we've been played off the park.

"Even when we've had defeats, we feel like we've been the best team which makes it difficult to take."
