Lee hopes Bolton can build on European success
Bolton boss Sammy Lee praised his team after a 1-0 win at The Reebok over Rabotnicki Kometal saw them into the Uefa Cup group stages.
A Nicolas Anelka looping header on 68 minutes was enough to secure Bolton a 2-1 aggregate victory.
It was his sixth goal after the Frenchman committed his future to the club in August by signing a new deal that will keep him at the Reebok until 2011.
Lee said: "Anelka's a good player, he's a quality player and that's why we were so pleased when he committed himself to this football club.
"Every time he goes out on the football pitch you see his total commitment but as I've said on many occasions, I don't want to talk about individuals.
"The team ethic right throughout the side was excellent and I thought we played some very good football."
In a bold move, Lee made seven changes to his team ahead of Chelsea's visit at the weekend.
Key players such as Gary Speed, Kevin Nolan and Ricardo Gardner were rested, while Anelka and El-Hadji Diouf started on the bench.
Lee added: "Time will tell but when I looked around at the strength of the bench tonight, and some of the lads who weren't even on the bench, and injuries apart, it was an indication of the strength in depth that we have got."
Bolton are now unbeaten in five games and Lee hopes his team can build on this victory.
"I don't particularly enjoy the position that we're in domestically but success breeds success and we're not going to get carried away," he said.
"Hopefully we can build on this victory because we're through to the group stages of what is a very important competition and we're looking to make it six unbeaten against Chelsea."
