Tim Ream admits he has no regrets over his January move to Bolton, despite the club being stuck in a relegation battle.

The United States international joined Wanderers from New York Red Bulls earlier this season and has formed a solid partnership with David Wheater at the heart of the Trotters defence.

Relegation is not a system that is included in the American league and while Ream admits the battle has not been fun, he insists he has no regrets over his decision to move to the club.

"It's definitely a different dynamic coming from a league that doesn't have relegation and I think that's where the pressure side of it comes in," Ream said.

"You don't really feel pressure game-in and game-out like you do here.

"It's not fun by any means. It makes for some ugly games, and some rough games.

"But what it comes down to is just fighting, fighting to stay up. That's the biggest thing. It doesn't matter how you do it.

"At the end of the day, we're the ones trying to stay up and fight not to get relegated.

"I'm not one to second-guess and regret decisions.

"Whether we do or don't get relegated, it doesn't matter. I signed the contract and I'm here.

"Obviously I would like to stay up, but at the end of the day it's up to us whether we do or not.

"If we don't, we have to live with it, and we'll keep plugging away."
