Bolton's Reo-Coker wants players to take ownership of poor results

Nigel Reo-Coker wants the Bolton players to own up for their poor performances this season and put it right by avoiding relegation.

The Trotters sit second bottom on the table with five matches remaining and the midfielder is urging the team to treat each remaining fixture as if their lives depend on it.

"You just want your team-mates to really step it up now," Reo-Coker told The Guardian. "We can't keep making excuses and looking for an easy way out: 'Blame this, blame that'.

"We're paid to play football; that's the bottom line. When we cross that white line, whatever the burdens or problems you have - let them go. This is our job and you can't make excuses. It's as simple as that."
