Knight wants Bolton to splash the cash

Bolton defender Zat Knight hopes that the club can make a few key signings during the off-season so they can strengthen their threadbare squad.

The 31-year old centre-half says it is vital that the Trotters have some quality injected into Reebok Stadium so the club can improve on last season's 14th league finish and FA Cup semi-final placing.

"The players have been fantastic but I do believe it's time for a revamp," he told the Bolton News.

"We have to go into next season stronger and hopefully the chairman (Phil Gartside) does stick to his word and bring players in because we have got a small squad.

"There were times when we couldn't even fill the bench. We need a bigger squad with better, more experienced players."

And Knight says that with some extra reinforcements, Bolton are capable of pushing for a European spot next term.

"We're a team on the up. People are talking about us again because of the style of football we've been playing for most of the season," he added.

"We didn't show that in the last four or five games, but we only needed to win a couple of those and we'd be having this conversation having finished in seventh or eighth.

"It wasn't to be, so if we can get those little additions of quality to the squad then I think we will push on and get into Europe next year.

"That's not me blowing my own trumpet, that's something I have seen this season because we've had a great home record.

"If we had have picked up a few more wins away then it might have been different."
