Reo-Coker convinced Bolton 'can do a West Ham'

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker is convinced they can still beat the drop.

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker is convinced they can still beat the drop.

Reo-Coker captained West Ham United in May 2007 when Alan Curbishley’s side faced champions Manchester United needing a point to stay up. Carlos Tevez scored a shock winner and Sheffield United were relegated after losing at home to Wigan.

Reo-Coker said: "There’s no fear in my heart. If anything, I’m looking forward to the game more than ever now.

"This is football, this is what we dream about. This is why we play the game to be part of big occasions like this. We must stand up and be counted.

"The equation is there for us. We must win next weekend. I’ve been in this situation before with West Ham when we had to go to Old Trafford.

"That’s something I can draw on. It just shows you that in football, nothing is for certain. Anything is possible if you believe and it’s down to us to take that on board and get the result we need."
