Juande Ramos has stressed the importance of imposing our style of football on Bolton on Saturday.

Juande Ramos has stressed the importance of imposing our style of football on Bolton on Saturday.

The Trotters arrive at the Lane with renewed hope of avoiding the drop after looking in dire straights a fortnight ago.

Back-to-back wins against West Ham and Middlesbrough have lifted them out of the bottom three in the Barclays Premier League but they are still looking over their shoulders only a point ahead of Birmingham and level with Reading with three games left.

Juande admitted he was surprised by Bolton’s situation. “Yes I am, because the team is set up to be higher up in the table, and they have been playing in the UEFA Cup,” he said. “They have the potential as a team to be higher up in the table.”

Bolton are renowned for their physical strength and direct style – characteristics that have served them well in finishing eighth, sixth, eighth and seventh in the last four seasons.

“We have our own way of playing, independently of who the opponent is. We have to impose our style of play on the match. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't but whoever imposes their style best tends to win the game.

"We just want to do the best we can in front of our fans,” added Juande, before a brief reflection on his time in charge so far.

“The team was in a difficult position when I came, but has managed to overcome that, and we have achieved an important goal for next season which was to get into Europe, so I'm happy.”
