Freedman: Win was for supporters

Bolton manager Dougie Freedman dedicated his side's 4-0 win over Blackburn to the fans after Wanderers proved too strong for their local rivals.

Medo Kamara headed the Trotters in front, with Joe Mason and Jay Spearing adding further goals either side of half-time.

Andre Moritz then scored from distance in the dying seconds for Bolton's biggest victory of the campaign, and Freedman believes his side could have won by an even greater margin.

Freedman said: "I think we deserved more but I was really pleased with our intent today. I can't sit here and praise one particular player because everyone played well.

"I think the fans deserve the credit today, though, because they've not had a lot to shout about this season and they pay good money.

"Blackburn are a good decent team so don't be fooled by the result today. There was one little slip from us in the first half but apart from that it was some really good stuff that we played out there.

"It could have been more but I'll settle for 4-0. And, like I said, that was for the fans today."

Although he did not make his debut, Freedman also expressed his delight at signing Alan Hutton on loan from Aston Villa.

The manager said: "He is a good experienced player and we felt that in this tough period, where there's a lot of games, we need as many bodies as we can get and Alan Hutton is a proven Premier League player and international."
