Bolton manager Gary Megson has rounded on some of his players, accusing them of trying to destabilise the club.

Megson, however, insists he will not let the dark dressing room mood dissuade him from getting the team out of the relegation zone, following Sunday's 2-0 defeat at home to local rivals Blackburn.

Asked if certain players are trying to destabilise the club, Megson said on BBC Radio Manchester: "Yes, there are bound to be one or two who are not going to be too happy. But you have to get on with those kind of things. It is not something that is entirely different at this club than any others."

Megson added: "You have to make sure it does not become an issue. I am sure it won't be. It is about the players who are playing and the squad that is out there.

"If you are in, great, if you are not you have to get on with it. If another club comes in for you, then you may move on."

Chairman Phil Gartside says he is not in the business of "pressing panic buttons" after a string of poor results. Bolton have chalked up only one home win in the league but Gartside said now was not the time for change.

He said: "The next few games are going to be important as they always are. The season is 38 games and we are confident. We have been playing some good football, it's been decent stuff.

"No-one presses panic buttons around here. I have been in the game long enough not to do that."

Supporters left the ground in numbers after Sam Ricketts' bizarre only goal in the 73rd minute which sealed Bolton's fate.

Megson sympathised with the fans and said: "You are looking at a team that is 2-0 down and playing poorly, I can understand people being frustrated and leaving."
