Martin Jol is full of respect for Bolton boss Sam Allardyce.
The pair come face to face on the touchline as we travel to The Reebok Stadium in the Barclays Premiership tonight.
We go into the game in seventh with Bolton level on points and just one place behind us after recovering from a sticky run at the turn of the year.
"Sam is a no-nonsense manager," said Head Coach Martin. "He plays a certain style and he's made that choice for Bolton.
"They weren't the biggest club over say the last 10 years but he's made it into an unbelievable club.
"He's done well and it's not always about style, it's also about getting results.
"They did that at the start of the season for a couple of months and managed to get some good away results. It will be a difficult game. They beat us 2-1 at home and we have to put that record straight."
