Neil Lennon: Bolton 'better than bottom' of Championship

Neil Lennon has led Bolton to 14 wins in his 50 games in charge

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon says his side are too good to be bottom of the Championship.

The Trotters dropped to the foot of the division after a 2-0 loss at Burnley, to leave them three points from safety.

"We're better than that, we're better than being bottom of the league," said Lennon, who took over at Macron Stadium in October last year.

"We'll have to turn that around, we'll have to prove that, and I think we will," he told BBC Radio Manchester.

Bolton's bad start to the season

Knocked out of the League Cup at home by League One Burton Albion
Have scored just nine goals in 12 games, five of which have come in the last three matches

Wanderers face successive home games against Birmingham City and Leeds United, and Lennon feels they are both games which his side can win.

"At the end of the day my employment is based on results and they've not been good," said the former Celtic manager.

"I'm aware of that, but I think we can win both the games and then I think that'll turn things around.

"Every game's difficult in this division, I'm not buoyed, but I'm pleased with what I saw today in a lot of aspects of the game."
