Ken Anderson puts pressure on Phil Parkinson

Pressure on Phil Parkinson's job was ramped up further yesterday as Ken Anderson hinted at drastic measures to correct Wanderers’ stuttering form.

As Bolton prepare to host fellow strugglers Hull City, the chairman stated he would take “whatever actions I think are necessary” to get the club back on track.

Parkinson came under heavy fire from his own supporters after Wednesday night’s 3-0 home defeat to Nottingham Forest, a result which left the Whites with one win from their last 10 games.

Anderson responded with a statement on the official website yesterday which suggested he could be laying the groundwork for change.

"I can assure you that I will be doing everything possible and take whatever actions I think are necessary to ensure that our results improve,” he said.

"I fully appreciate and understand that you, our fans and supporters, are the lifeblood and soul of the club and it is my job to try and ensure you that we deliver what you want and is needed to get back on track."

Parkinson has fought out of similar corners before in his two-and-a-half years with Wanderers, spent constantly swimming against the tide. Yet calls for change have rarely been so intense during the manager’s two-and-a-half years with the club.

“I can understand and share your frustrations as supporters but we must all be as one and get behind the 11 players who are out on the pitch from the outset,” Anderson said.

“I know the players and staff will also be smarting from this defeat but they will be looking to put things right and I hope that there will be a marked improvement on Saturday.

“As I have previously said, I think the Sky Bet Championship this season is wide open and on any given day anyone can beat each other as has clearly been seen in recent results throughout the league. Fortunately, because of our good start to the season, we are still in a good position, but it is essential that we get back to winning games again and quickly.

“I fully understand your concerns and am aware of the comments on social media, but as I have previously mentioned, your continued support is absolutely crucial in helping us get back on track and I hope that by full-time you will all be leaving the University of Bolton Stadium with smiles upon your faces.”

He says we are 'in a good position'.
I wonder if he's looked at the league table recently
