Despite seeing Bolton make their best start to a Premier League season in four years, El-Hadji Diouf believes the club will never be as successful as they were under former boss Sam Allardyce.

Diouf returns to the Reebok Stadium on Sunday when Blackburn Rovers provide opposition for Wanderers, with Allardyce also set to return to his old stomping ground.

The Senegal forward was a part of the side which qualified for European competition for the first time in 2005 and while he admits Wanderers have been impressive, the 29-year-old does not believe the current run of form will last.

"Could they reach those heights again? No. I don't think so," Diouf said.

"The best time Bolton had was with Sam. It's not now.

"Now Bolton are winning games and people are talking about them, but I can tell you something - the season is long and a lot of things can happen. That's why today I say I think we (Blackburn) will catch Bolton soon.

"I still keep my eyes open for them, of course, so I know what they can do."
