Bolton boss Gary Megson admits his side will face a tough couple of weeks in training after their 5-1 defeat at Aston Villa.

Wanderers were left humiliated at Villa Park for the third season running, with goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen earning the plaudits despite the heavy defeat.

After the game, Megson admitted his disgust at the performance and the way in which the team had let the fans down.

"It is a hugely disappointed dressing room - the players are disappointed in their own performances and the manner of the defeat," Megson told the club's official website.

"We have spoken about it briefly now and we will be working on getting back to the level of performances that we have been putting in over the past few weeks.

"We let the supporters down and they have been really behind us over the last six weeks even though we have lost some of those games.

"We have now got two weeks to work hard, pick ourselves up and get ourselves prepared for the match against Blackburn.

"We have now played four out of the top five clubs and next up is a tough local derby, and we must ensure that our performance in that game is back to the standard which we showed against Manchester United and Chelsea."
