Debutant Paul Smyth capped off a fine man of the match display on the opening day against Bolton Wanderers with a goal - and said the hosts could've scored more, such was the quality of the attack. 

Smyth opened the scoring after rounding Bolton goalkeeper Remi Matthews, before Fred Onyedinma put the game beyond the visitors with a tidy header.

Smyth was electric all game, stretching the Bolton full-backs on both sides of the pitch. The QPR loanee praised his teammates attacking display against Bolton.

Smyth said: "The gaffer had a plan and that was to press whenever we could and we did that. Obviously it was a bit frustrating in the first half where we couldn't get a goal and the second half we just went all out again.

"Thankfully, Ant has played the ball in behind and I have chased it down and there was a bit of a mishap between the keeper and the full back and I nicked in and tapped the ball home."

"Alex Pattison should've scored five himself! He had so chances on his left foot and I think he knows that himself.

"But we're getting in the positions to score the goals and that is the main thing."

The debutant also praised the supporters after the game, saying that the supporters helped give the team the lift they needed to get the goals.

He said: "The fans came out and showed their support in their numbers. 

"They sung behind us and pushed us on that extra bit to get the goals we needed." 

Smyth said that the team tried to remain focused on the game throughout the week despite the circumstances that surrounded the build up.

"We just focused on ourselves until the eleven stepped out on the field today and we knew what was happening then took it from there. 

"That was the main thing that we should have done and we did to get us the three points."
