Bolton Wanderers defender not giving up on survival hopes

Bolton Wanderers defender Mark Beevers has said that the Trotters won’t give up on their survival hopes until the final stages of the campaign. The recent midweek results have witnessed the Trotters drop seven points adrift of safety but Beevers insists the club can still turnaround their results to maintain their Championship status.

Speaking to reporters, the 29-year-old said that the club can turn their fortunes around in the final nine games of the campaign, he said:“We believe it and hopefully we can get the fans behind us to believe it too. On paper, with the quality we have got, I don’t think anyone would shy away from saying we are underachieving. The squad has changed massively, but I’d still say we had quality last season and it’s the same this time around. It is all about how it goes on the day. You can have that quality and still be a poor team and I have seen that in the past. I believe we can still do it, though, and so do the rest of the lads.”

BOLTON SLIDE TO DEFEAT

Bolton Wanderers were at the receiving end of an embarrassing defeat at home against basement side Wigan Athletic recently.

The loss has severely hurt the Wanderers hopes of Premier League survival this year, and it has meant that the pressure on Owen Coyle’s shoulders has increase massively.
