Zat Knight has moved to deny talk of dressing room unrest at Bolton and believes the players are committed to keeping the club in the Premier League.

Knight and his defensive partner, Gary Cahill, were both embroiled in heated exchanges with Trotters goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen on Saturday, as Wanderers drew 1-1 at home with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Those arguments prompted speculation that there may be unrest amongst Owen Coyle's squad but Knight insists there is nothing to tell, apart from showing how much the players care about avoiding relegation.

"I said in the dressing room that I don't mind arguments as long as we get it right," Knight told The Daily Mail.

"I don't like arguing when they've scored a goal, but that's just our desire for the game and wanting to come out on top.

"We don't want to be in this position, down at the bottom. But we are in it and everyone wants to fight to get us out of it.

"We've got some massive games ahead of us and I believe we could do with showing more of that passion that came through against Wolves.

"I don't know how it looks from the sidelines, but it has been frustrating. I'm not saying the passion is not there but I think sometimes we need to show it a bit more. Sometimes it just seems a little bit easy for other teams."
