Bolton boss Megson defends benching Anelka, Diouf

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson defended his decision to start last night's 1-1 draw against Aris Salonika with star pair El Hadji Diouf and Nicolas Anelka on the bench.

Megson said: "We like to see flair players - but we like to see them against Manchester United and Liverpool too. They were both chomping at the bit to come on but I've no regrets."
