Ex-Wanderers star calls on senior players to step up

Former Reebok midfielder, Tony Kelly, has urged Bolton’s senior players to take responsibility for getting Wanderers' league season on track.

“It’s no use getting on the manager’s back, though,” he told the Bolton News prior to Tuesday night’s crunch victory in the Carling Cup.

“Once they cross that white line it’s down to the players and, when things aren’t going well, it’s the experienced ones — the big game players – you rely on to help you come through it.

“I’m looking to people like Kevin Davies, Gary Cahill, Matt Taylor and Sean Davis to stand up and be counted in the next few games but I’d also like to think the fans can play their part too.

“We all need to show a bit of patience. We went through many of these problems last season and the season before, and I’m still of the opinion that this current squad has improved.

“It’s just going to take time for the new signings to fit in and we have to give them that time.”
