Davies eyes Bolton response

19 January 2009 02:14
Striker Kevin Davies has backed Bolton Wanderers to pick up the points necessary to move away from the drop-zone in the coming weeks. The Trotters saw one potential point turn to nothing when they conceded a last-minute goal to lose 1-0 to Manchester United at the weekend. Wanderers are now just two points clear of the drop-zone having lost their last four league games, but Davies is refusing to press the panic button. He told the club's official website: "Before the game we were three points off the bottom three and now after it we are two, so it hasn't gone too badly for us. "We don't really want to be looking down. We've put two good performances together over the last couple of weeks and I suppose we have to try and take the positives out of that. "There's a break between this game and the Blackburn game (January 28), where we need to start getting back to winning ways. "And I think that if we play like that against any side outside the top four then, more often than not, we'll get a result. "It's been a difficult fortnight for us, playing against the top sides, but I think we should have had a couple of points out of it. "We have got a small squad and it has been the same players week-in, week-out, so this break will give us a chance to recharge and get a few bodies back. "It's important we come back fighting for the last 16 games of the season."
