Ricketts backing Bolton signing Pratley for big impact

Bolton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts is convinced of big things from new signing Darren Pratley.

The former Swansea City star believes Pratley can replicate that kind of form at a higher level after his arrival at the Reebok.

"I left Swansea about the same time as he came in from Fulham but I go back regularly to watch games and speak to a lot of players who were there," he told the Bolton News.

"People say he's a good professional and you can tell from watching him play that he's got good energy and an eye for goal.

"It's a step up to Premier League level but I think he'll handle it. The gaffer will have done his homework and I'm sure he'll be a good signing for us."
