Bolton boss talks of disruptive element amongst players

Bolton boss Gary Megson has accused some of his players of trying to destabilise the club. Bolton have slipped down the Barclays Premier League and remain in trouble following the 2-0 home defeat by local rivals Blackburn on Sunday.

Asked if certain players are trying to destabilise the club, Megson said on BBC Radio Manchester: "Yes, there are bound to be one or two who are not going to be too happy.

"But you have to get on with those kind of things. It is not something that is entirely different at this club than any others.

"You have to make sure it does not become an issue. I am sure it won't be. It is about the players who are playing and the squad that is out there.

"If you are in, great, if you are not you have to get on with it. If another club comes in for you, then you may move on."

Chairman Phil Gartside says he is not in the business of "pressing panic buttons" after a string of poor results.

He said: "The next few games are going to be important as they always are.

"The season is 38 games and we are confident. We have been playing some good football, it's been decent stuff.

"No-one presses panic buttons around here. I have been in the game long enough not to do that."
