Steinsson not taking Bolton debut for granted

Bolton's Gretar Steinsson made his first Premier League start of the season at right-back but is not convinced it is a permanent situation. Sam Ricketts has been preferred to the Iceland international on the right side of Gary Megson's defence so far this season.

The 27-year-old was pleased he could do a job for Megson, but is not getting carried away with assuming the position is now his.

"I just try to do my best," he said. "I am professional and I know what is asked of me.

"I get my head down in training and wait for the call.

"That came against Fulham and as a defender I was really pleased with my performance.

"It takes time to get your rhythm on the offensive side but I will get there, and get back to normal."
