Bolton caretaker manager Chris Evans has ruled out applying for the manager's job on a permanent basis.

Former Wolves academy chief Evans and head coach Steve Wigley are taking charge of the side following the sacking of Gary Megson on Wednesday and they begin their tenure in earnest on Saturday when League Two side Lincoln visit the Reebok Stadium in the FA Cup third round.

Evans, who was recruited as assistant manager by Megson two years ago, said: "I will not be applying for this job. I have no intention of being the manager of Bolton Wanderers."

He added: "But equally I would like to feel I am professional enough to do the best possible job I can during the time given to me.

"Steve and I come from similar backgrounds and have similar ideas. We have work to do and will continue to do that as best we can."
