He told whufc.com: "It was good to score again (against Bolton) but we didn't win and the most important thing is for us to get a good result. Hopefully I can score again in our next match and we have a better result that is good for the whole of the team."
Cole added: "It was a bit subdued in the dressing room as it was the first loss under the new manager. But we will put the game behind us now. We are all positive and he [Gianfranco Zola] knows we will look to bounce back in our next game."
