Megson demands more from Bolton underachievers

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson admits he's unhappy with his players.

Fans again called for Megson to be sacked after Bolton slumped into the bottom two after Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Wolves.

They now face two home games in four days - against Manchester City on Saturday and a relegation six-pointer against West Ham a week tonight.

Megson said: "I don't like criticising my players publicly but three or four of them are not playing like I know they can.

"We've got exceptional players who are not playing as well as I know they can. Our club deserves better than this. We're in trouble.

"With two home games coming up, there has to be a realisation of what we're doing.

"The message is not getting through to a few of the players."
