Bolton's Lee reveals supportive messages from rivals

Under pressure Bolton Wanderers boss Sammy Lee has revealed he's received messages of support from rival managers.

Lee has come in for some fierce criticism but apparently there remains a lot of goodwill in the game towards him.

He said: "There were well-wishers at the start of the season and I have had regular phone calls from a number of people.

"I don't want to name names but they have an appreciation of the pressure we are under.

"It is a pressurised job but one I have always wanted to do.

"I have been under pressure from the first game but with the help of the players I am coping admirably.

"Of course when results do not go your way it affects your confidence at the time. Then when I see the effort and commitment of the players it restores you."
