Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson insists the team must stick together after their defeat to Aston Villa, which leaves the team with four wins in 16 games so far.

The Trotters lost 2-0 to Aston Villa on Friday, as they continue to languish in 19th place in the Sky Bet Championship.

“We have to sit down again with the lads and go through areas we can improve on, going into the Swansea City game,” Parkinson said, according to the club’s official website.

“I do believe that if we keep playing the way we are, like when we played Hull and Blackburn, where we dominate periods of the game like we have done, the goals will come.”

When asked about his team’s lack of luck of in front of the opposition’s goal, Parkinson said: “It would be nice if we did get a bit of luck, but nobody has got a magic wand to wave and get us three points.

“We need to keep working on getting goals and make our own bit of luck. There is no lack of effort or application, we just need someone to produce something to give everybody a lift.”

The Bolton manager also believes Villa’s second goal was a turning point of game.

“It would be nice if we did get a bit of luck, but nobody has got a magic wand to wave and get us three points.” He said:

“We need to keep working on getting goals and make our own bit of luck.
