Bolton hoping to overcome Liverpool with help from wonderkid

Bolton manager Neil Lennon is looking to the use club wonderkid Zach Clough in his bids to cause an FA Cup fourth round upset against Liverpool, Daily Star reports.

The 19-year-old had a great start to his first team career after scoring three goals in his first two club games.

He made his league debut against Wolves last weekend, netting his second and third senior goals for his side.

Lennon was full of the praise for the young striker, highlighting that fact that his determination and drive to just play football is the key to his success.

He said: “Temperamentally he is very good. He is very level-headed. He just wants to play football. He is one of the kids from the street.

“The street kids are the ones who fall over, cut their knee, wipe it off and get on with it, whereas sometimes you see stretchers coming on and physios coming on.

“He’s certainly a talent. We don’t want to get too carried away with him at the minute but he has lit up the place in his two performances so far.”

Clough is expected to team-up with former Chelsea forward Eidur Gudjohnsen as the two front men when they host the Premier League side tonight.

The English starlet joined Bolton when he was only eight years old and worked his way up through the ranks before being given a long-term contract after impressive on his senior debut.
