Bolton manager Neil Lennon saw his side stretch their unbeaten home run to eight games and he is also seeking to add to his squad.

Lennon said: “It was a fair result. Whilst I’m disappointed, I am sort of satisfied because we didn’t play anywhere near our best. We got off to a poor start and I’m not convinced it was a penalty – in fact I’m not convinced ours was a penalty either.

“We never really imposed ourselves on the game and we are missing creativity, so we need to get some bodies in and I think it’s important we do that this month.

“But it’s one defeat in 10 games and that shows how far we have come.

“If we want to make the play-offs then we’ve got to start winning some games again.”

Meanwhile, Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn stressed the importance of adding to his relegation-threatened squad with “two or three players” following their 1-1 Sky Bet Championship draw at Bolton.

The Leeds boss, who began his career as a trainee at Bolton, said: “Like I’ve said before, our set-up is different in that we have a recruiter and technical director in Nicola Salerno. I’ve got to get my head together with them and see which is the best way forward, but in my opinion I think we need two or three players to stiffen us up.”
