Bolton boss Dougie Freedman refuses to throw in the towel, after watching his side get thrashed 4-0 at Fulham on Wednesday night.

Wanderers were second best from the first to the last whistle at Craven Cottage, as goals from Hugo Rodallega, Fernando Amorebieta, Lasse Vigen Christensen and Tim Hoogland gave Kit Symons' side a fully deserved victory that sees them move above the Trotters in the league table.

Despite overseeing a run which has seen Bolton pick up just five points from a possible 30, Freedman insists he is still the right man for the job and expects to be in charge for the 100th time when Bournemouth visit Macron Stadium on Saturday.

"I am here to work and I am here to do my very best," Freedman was quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

"I don't think that way (about resigning). I don't think the players have chucked the towel in. They showed a very good spirit.

"We are professionals and try to do a professional job. I understand the fans' frustration but I will turn up on Saturday to try and pick a team that has characters in it.

"Hopefully, somewhere down the line, we don't give any errors away."
