Although Bolton have only won once this season, they have also just suffered a single defeat, and that came in controversial circumstances.
That they have adopted a rather more flowing style of football under Owen Coyle means they are getting plaudits to go with those positive results as well.

"I can't say I am too fussed about whether we get any more credit or not," said the Wales international.
"Maybe the way we are playing is more pleasing on the eye but we just want to get results."
