Arsenal's Afobe confident about Bolton move

Benik Afobe is supremely confident that Bolton can return from their poor start to the season and push towards Premier League promotion.

The 19-year old striker is on a season-long loan from Arsenal and although the Trotters are sitting 18th on the Championship table, he is assured that things will only improve even after the recent sacking of manager Owen Coyle.

"I've been watching Bolton for many years, as a youngster, in the Premier League and they've got a fantastic squad here, with more than half of the side kept on from last season," Afobe told Sky Sports.

"You could say that all the players here are Premier League players in terms of quality and now it's just a case of turning that into performances every week.

"The aim is to bounce straight back into the Premier League and hopefully I can help to make that happen this season.

"We can't change what has gone in the past, but it is up to us now to change the club's fortunes around, starting with the next game against Bristol City (at home this Saturday)."
