Harry Redknapp is taking little notice of Bolton's current fortunes ahead of Saturday's Premier League match at the Lane.
Owen Coyle's men finished 14th last term and just three points behind Aston Villa in eighth.
But they've struggled this time around and arrive at the Lane with just three wins in 13 league matches to sit in 18th place.
By contrast, we're aiming for a sixth-successive win in the Premier League and to stretch our current sequence of nine wins and a draw in our last 10 league fixtures.
Harry felt the Trotters had been a little unlucky and pointed to their recent 5-0 hammering of Stoke as to what they are capable of.
"Bolton are still a tough side to play against," said Harry. "I can't ever remember having an easy match against them.
"They have been a little bit unlucky, they have had a few injures, but they have an outstanding young manager and good players.
"They showed what they are all about against Stoke. Nobody has easy game against them, and they had a fantastic win. We know it will be difficult game.
"We're on a fantastic run and we just have to keep it going, game at a time."
