Bolton Wanderers have scored just 26 goals in the English Premier League so far this season and although Gary Megson’s side are 4 points clear off the dropzone, things could change should they fail to score goals. No wonder that Gary Megson is urging his men to hit the back of the opposition’s net more frequently.
We have kept four clean sheets out of the last five. We are disappointed it is not five because that’s the idea but we are not setting out purely and simply trying to get clean sheets. We want to win games – 1-0, 2-0, anything nil. We are playing football to try and score goals, not just purely and simply to make sure we don’t concede.
Actually, Bolton hold the dubious record of being one of the most miserly teams in the Premiership when it comes to scoring goals. Even under Sam Allardyce when they didn’t have to worry about end-of-season relegation dogfights, they were still struggling for goals.
