Davies: Heated debate got us going

Kevin Davies has revealed how a candid meeting of the Bolton

players following defeat at Wolves brought about their recent


Gary Megson’s side have drawn with Manchester City and beaten

West Ham since slipping to a 2-1 reverse against their relegation

rivals at Molineux – their fifth defeat in six games in all


Wanderers striker Davies said: “After losing at Wolves I

sensed a massive change.

“I had a meeting with the boys. I said ‘we’re in this

position and we’re the ones that got us into it, so we’re the ones

who will get us out of it. We are not going to hide behind

managers, hide behind formations’.

“A few said a few things and it showed in the performances.

It’s only because people care.”

Bolton moved out of the bottom three with the win over the

Hammers and Davies added: “We had to stand up and be responsible

for where we are.”
