Bolton still in the ‘dogfight’

Bolton Wanderers

Bolton boss Phil Parkinson says his side still have plenty of work to do to secure survival.

Wanderers are six points clear of the bottom three with nine games to play and look well placed to avoid the drop, although Parkinson is well aware they have plenty of work ahead of them if they are to retain their Championship status.

“I honestly don’t feel we are ‘nearly there’ and I think the minute I do think that will be the moment we get dragged right back into it,” Parkinson told the Bolton News. “We have only achieved something if by the end of the season we’re above that dotted line.

“Right now, I think we have a lot of work left to do. There are some really good elements of our play, we’re controlling the game a lot better over the last two away games.

“So I am happy we have started to evolve a little bit, I am pleased with the results we have got away from home, but I am not getting ahead of myself. We are still in a dogfight.”
