UK Nobody happier than Bolton striker Doyle when Miller scored Southend winner last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- The substitute came off the bench to score the decisive goal in the League Two win over Southend United
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Ian Evatt insists there was nobody happier in the Bolton Wanderers camp when Shaun Miller scored than the man he replaced against Southend United in Eoin Doyle. Miller came on for Doyle on 75 minutes after the Trotters talisman drew a blank against the Shrimpers despite chances. He saw one effort on the stroke of half-time cleared off the line by the Roots Hall side, while he slipped and put a follow-up from Marcus Maddison's effort over the goal. But only seven minutes into his stint on the pitch, Miller scored what proved to be the decisive goal of the game. Antoni Sarcevic's blocked shot appeared to come off the bar and was misjudged by Southend goalkeeper Mark Oxley, leaving Miller to slot home his first league goal for Wanderers.

But the Bolton boss believes the way Doyle celebrated the winner is an indication of type of closeness that has been fostered at the University of Bolton Stadium. He said: "I think Eoin will be cursing his luck because he’d have liked a chance like that, but at the end of the day it’s a team game and no one was more happy than Eoin Doyle celebrating in the stands when Shaun Miller scored and that’s what we’re about. "We’re coming together as a team. We’ve got a real closeness and togetherness now all around the squad, all around the board, off the pitch, the non-football staff, the football staff, we’re really coming together, which is great to see." After Miller has had limited game time so far for the Trotters due to injuries, Evatt was pleased to see the ex-Crewe Alexandra striker on the scoresheet.

Evatt feels the squad is going to play a key role in the coming weeks as Wanderers moved into 10th in the table and are now three points from the play-offs. And Evatt now has the options to make changes when things are not working for his side, something he did not have in abundance earlier on in the season. He said: “I’m delighted but that’s what I say to them all. Any squad of players are only as good as the ones out of the team. "The ones in the team are really easy to keep happy and on board, it’s the rest of them that you need to keep on board and switched on. "I tell them all the time that they’re going to be needed and there’s going to be key and pivotal moments in this run-in where they’re going to make the difference for us and they’re going to have to keep themselves switched on and ready for that moment.

“Obviously it makes me look brilliant when I make changes on Wednesday and we win the game and I make changes today and we win the game! "But it helps when I’ve got those options and those players have really bought into what we’re doing and the whole squad is really together. "We don’t want to leave anyone at home really. The squad that I’ve selected to go forwards with, we’re all together on this and we want them supporting their mates and you could see from the reaction in the stands from the players who weren’t on the pitch, it means everything to everybody.”
