Megson won't rush Smolarek

11 Sep 2008 - 15:55:27

Bolton Wanderers manager Gary Megson will not rush recent loan capture Ebi Smolarek in to Premier League action.

The 27-year-old Poland international has arrived at the Reebok Stadium from Racing Santander, but Megson does not think he is ready to face Fulham this weekend.

Megson said: "I don't think Ebi would know the names of four or five of our players.

"He won't be involved against Fulham as he'll need a bit of time to get used to the football here.

"There's no timescale on when he might be ready. Some players settle in really quickly, others never do.

"So we don't know what anyone is able to do as this is entirely different football in this country."

Smolarek has only been with Racing for one season and netted just four goals in 34 Primera Liga appearances last term.
