Logjam at foot of table as nine teams a chance to drop

Bolton boss Gary Megson admits his team is one of nine that is danger of being relegated from the Premier League this season.

The Trotters currently sit in 12th position on the table but are just four points clear of Stoke who are 18th.

Megson does however believes his side has the best chance of the nine to remain in the top flight.

"At the moment we really have to look at where we are compared with everyone else and put it into context," Megson told the Bolton News.

"I would suggest that we are now in a relegation battle with nine other clubs, and we are the best placed of those nine.

"We have got to try and get the results we need, get them as early as we can, and hopefully move out of that band of clubs."
