NewsLoan watch: In-form Conor Bradley 'buzzing' to score again for Bolton
Conor Bradley continued his fine form for Bolton Wanderers by scoring again as Exeter City were beaten 2-0 in League One.
The Liverpool loanee, playing at right wing-back, netted a calm early finish at the University of Bolton Stadium – his sixth goal in 26 appearances for promotion-chasing Wanderers, for whom Owen Beck came on as a late substitute.
Bradley, who was also on the scoresheet in the 4-0 Papa Johns Trophy victory over Manchester United U21s in midweek, was duly voted Man of the Match by Bolton’s supporters.
“I thought first half we were really good, passed the ball well, created loads of chances and I was obviously buzzing to score at home again. I probably should have had two, but I’ll take the one and take the three points,” the Northern Ireland international told Wanderers’ official YouTube channel.
“It’s something the gaffer always says to me, to get in at that back post [and] try to get across defenders, and if I get a chance take it away and thankfully I did today.
“I didn’t think I’d get as many chances as I do. Six goals halfway through the season is good, but hopefully I can get more than six in the next half of the season and keep pushing on.”
