Southampton winger De Ridder grateful for Bolton opportunity

Bolton loan signing Steve De Ridder made his first league start in almost a year in the 2-1 win over Burnley, but later was substituted. "It's been a long time since I started a league game and I was ready for it.

"I think I did alright. I understand why I got substituted because I need to build up match fitness," the 25-year-old Dutchman told BBC Radio Manchester.

"The gaffer wants to bring me in slowly. It's been a year since I started my last league game, so injury-wise it's just being careful."
