The Villagers are stuck on seven points in the National League North - but it’s not for the want of trying.
Ferriby lost 1-0 at home to Curzon Ashton last night and Bolder, 35, accepts it’s a waiting game as the club look to turn fortunes around.
They may be adrift at the bottom but the new boss feels with a bit of luck things will finally start to turn.
“We’ve spoken all week about doing certain things and we did that,” he told the club’s official website after last night’s defeat to the Nash.
“The result was harsh. They were panicking during the second-half. If we’d got one goal I think we’d have got another.
“We looked an attacking threat which was pleasing. We are definitely showing signs of making strides going forward as a team but it will take time.
“In the situation we are in, players often want to get the ball away from goal as quickly as possible. We’re trying to instil confidence in to the players to keep the ball.”
Bolder knows the fans respect the transitional time Ferriby are going through.
“It was good to hear the fans responding to the players because the players were working hard and fans see and recognise that effort on the pitch,” he added.
“That is the minimum requirement that I expect. You can’t always control what happens in a game but you can control the effort and commitment you put in as a player.”
