Gus said: “They will be nervous as they need the points, we should be happy to play at home, on our pitch with our supporters behind us.
“We have to start as we’ve been starting games lately and go on and try to win.
“If we score, they will have to open up because they need something from the game and that will give us the opportunity to try and score again.
“They are fighting for their lives, they’ve been better lately with two wins and it will be a tough game.”
Once again, footballing styles came into the conversation with Bolton renowned for their no-nonsense approach to the game.
“They will try and impose their style of play and let’s see if we’re strong enough to cope with that,” added Gus. “If we get into their game it will be difficult, we just have to make sure we play our football.”
