Bolton chiefs losing faith in Lee

Sammy Lee is struggling to hang onto his job at Bolton Wanderers.

The Times says Lee's future as Bolton Wanderers manager appeared increasingly bleak last night in the face of a revolt among his senior players.

The Bolton board had been prepared to give Lee until the end of the month to save his job, with particular importance placed on the home match against Aston Villa on October 28, but after the events of this week, culminating in Gary Speed's resignation as coach, the club's hierarchy believes that Lee's situation is becoming untenable.

According to dressing-room sources, the discontent is spiralling out of control, with most of the players believing that a change of manager is required if the club are to recapture the success that they had under Sam Allardyce.
