In December and January Bolton faced, among others, Chelsea, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton and Wigan - all in the top seven of the Premier League.[LNB]During that spell they won just two of their last 10 matches but Saturday's visit of West Ham is the start of three home games in four fixtures.[LNB]Newcastle, Fulham and Middlesbrough must all travel to the Reebok Stadium, with trips to Stoke and West Brom also coming in that period.[LNB]And Basham believes because there is more expectation on the team to do well against such clubs it increases the pressure on the players.[LNB]"We've had a tough run against and played the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal - but this will be even tougher because we're playing teams around us in the league," the 20-year-old told the Bolton News.[LNB]"These are must-win games if we don't want to get relegated. West Ham are playing well at the moment and it will be a tough game, but we know what we have to do."[LNB][LNB]
