Bolton captain Kevin Davies has admitted the interim trio of Jimmy Phillips, Sammy Lee and Julian Darby are working hard to turn around the club's fortunes.

Phillips, Lee and Darby have been promoted from their roles in the Wanderers academy and will take charge of first team affairs until a new manager has been found, following the sacking of Owen Coyle last week.

Davies has revealed how the players are currently in for double training sessions, with the temporary management also bringing a more scientific approach, originally adopted by Sam Allardyce, back to the club.

"This hasn’t been a case of them coming in and saying 'we'll put a few sessions on and keep you fit,'" Davies told The Bolton News.

"It has been everything. It has been bright and bubbly but, most of all, it has been intense.

"They have been with the club through the good and the bad. They know what works, what doesn't, and they are using that experience to help us get results.

"We've generally gone out and played to our way. Sometimes it hasn't worked out and we've been criticised for not having a plan B, but they are working very hard on shape with the back four and midfield.

"We do need to be more solid. There haven't been enough clean sheets and that's down to everyone. The whole team. We need to improve.

"We've had a few conversations about what we do for recovery, because we've got quite a few games coming up in a short space of time. They've looked at all aspects of training and we're in twice a day now.

"We do pre-hab in the gym in the mornings, and, to be fair, the lads have always been quite good with that.

"They are looking at using Jimmy (Barrow) and Mike (Clitheroe) more and the science of it, trying to tailor it individually so that the training is all specific to what they feel each player needs."
