MARK Beevers stoked the flames for Saturday’s visit of high-flying Fulham, warning Wanderers opponents: “You won’t pass us off the park!”
No team in the Championship has enjoyed as much possession as Slavisa Jokanovic’s side, currently sitting fifth in the table.
Fulham have won their last five league games but Whites defender Beevers insists they will not be allowed to have things their own way at the Macron – with Phil Parkinson’s side fired-up to build on last week’s win over Bristol City.

“I think we’re a team that shouldn’t or won’t allow a team to come to our stadium and pass us off the park,” he told The Bolton News.
“Fans don’t want to see that and we definitely don’t want to see that because it means more running for us.
“We need to get in their faces from the first minute, not allow them to stroke it around, get our tackles in and ruffle a few feathers – we know we have got some quality to nick us that goal.”
Wanderers have been pigeon-holed as one of the Championship’s more direct teams but since losing target man Gary Madine to Cardiff City on deadline day, have had to adapt their strategy.
Beevers reckons there is enough flexibility in the squad to cope.

“People have us down as a team who plays a certain way but let them think that. I know we’ve got players who can adapt to different systems,” he said.
“I’m not going to stand here and say we won’t miss Gaz – on and off the pitch - but the manager has brought in new players and we’ve got to get on with it.
“Anyway, it’s nice to know teams think we’re one-dimensional. We can catch them by surprise that way.”
Will Buckley is likely to miss tomorrow’s game with a minor hamstring problem, and Stephen Darby may also have to sit out after splitting his head open in a training ground collision on Thursday.
Aaron Wilbraham is nursing a calf strain and Reece Burke may also be rested as he recovers from a back complaint.

Beevers knows Fulham will start tomorrow’s game as odds-on favourites but believes the underdog tag has suited Bolton this season.
“We have surprised a few people, especially at home,” he said. “We don’t mind if people want to big up opponents, we’ll just get on with our jobs like we did against Bristol City.”
