Captain Kevin Nolan has issued a rallying cry to fans and insists the under-fire Bolton Wanderers players are capable of turning around their poor start to the season.
The Trotters have lost four of their opening five Premier League games to increase the pressure on new manager Sammy Lee.
Saturday's 2-1 defeat at the hands of Everton consigned Wanderers to their worst top-flight start in 44 years.
However, Nolan has urged supporters to back Lee and the players as they look to turnaround their early-season fortunes.
"I know we are strong enough to withstand what has gone on over the last few weeks," he told the club's official website.
"I know that there's no group of lads I would rather be with in that dressing room to get us out of the position we are in.
"We've just got to make sure that we stick together, in-house.
"We can't let outside influences affect us because, once that starts happening, there's only one way and that's down."
