Roberto Martinez says it is too early to read into the current Premier League standings.
Martinezâ€™ Wigan Athletic sit 18th on the table with just five points from seven outings but the Spaniard feels it would be wrong to judge a team at such a premature stage of the campaign.
â€œIf you're looking at the table and trying to draw any conclusions now, you are going to be wrong," he said ahead of tomorrowâ€™s home meeting with the bottom-placed Bolton.
"The difference between teams from 8th to 20th is very small and there are still the best part of eight months of the competition to go."
On tomorrowâ€™s opponents, Martinez added: â€œBolton won't be near the bottom at the end of the season.
"They have enough experience and know-how and the mentality to cope with this kind of pressure.
"I am not as extremist as other people.
"The real start of Bolton's season is the next few months.
"Owen (Coyle) controls his squad extremely well and I don't believe he is in a bad moment at all."
