Davies hails Trotters display

Bolton Wanderers skipper Kevin Davies has urged his side to take the positives from a stirring fightback in their 4-3 defeat at Chelsea.
The Trotters were 4-0 down after just over an hour at Stamford Bridge, but stormed back to reduce the deficit to a single goal thanks to strikes from Andy O'Brien, Chris Basham and Matt Taylor.
Bolton then went close to grabbing an unlikely equaliser, with Davies telling the club's official website: "We still feel that there is work to do and we're targeting that top ten.
"We knew it was going to be difficult, but we started the game well and created the most chances in the opening half-an-hour.
"We didn't manage to take any of them and obviously they got their noses in front. Then to concede straight away in the second half, you expect them to come on and at 4-0 it was a case of how many they'd get.
"We made a couple of changes, we got one goal back and the spirits were lifted and then at 4-3 we were a little bit disappointed that we couldn't nick a point.
"We've now scored seven goals in two games and, if we can take those performances down to Portsmouth, then we will go down there and get a result."
