Bolton manager Gary Megson admits he was wrong to go public on stating there was dressing-room unrest at the club.

Megson insists the dissent is "not a huge problem" as he attempts to lift his side out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.

"I made a mistake in highlighting the situation because while it is still there and still apparent, it is not a huge problem," he said.

"Maybe I should not be as honest with you as I have been. You say these things then other people pick up on it and make a bigger deal out of what I was trying to say.

"I can understand people being unhappy if they are not in the team. When you have squad of 20-odd players and can only play 11, you are going to have the hump a little bit.

"If you take Chelsea, they may be top of the division but one or two will have a face on as they are not playing."

Meanwhile, Trotters midfielder Sean Davis appears resigned to missing the rest of the campaign because of a knee injury.

Davis made only three starts after arriving from Fulham in the summer before suffering the setback.

He told the Bolton News: "I know I am not going to play again this season. To have had an injury for this long, I would rather see it out and be 100% for pre-season. Hopefully, if everything goes right, I should be back in April but for me, I don't want to rush it."

Megson added: "Sean is going to be out for a long spell but whether it will be for the season only time will tell. It will be touch and go."
