Megson throws down gauntlet to Bolton players

Gary Megson says his Bolton Wanderers players face two choices as they battle against relegation.

"There are two choices now; either the white flag goes up or the sleeves go up," he said after defeat to Arsenal. "The fact we have gone four points from safety will not be lost on the players.

"All we can do is circle the wagons, put our tin helmets on and try to battle our way into a position where we can compete with the teams above us.

"We are running out of games but we will see what the immediate reaction is to this.

"You can't take any positives from the match. When you are 2-0 up to 10 men and you come off with no points it would be a bit churlish to suggest some of the things we did were okay."
