Bolton boss Gary Megson has turned up the pressure on the players he rested against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday by demanding a result at Wigan on Sunday.

The Trotters were beaten 1-0 on the night and 2-1 on aggregate as Megson put out a side missing Kevin Nolan, Jussi Jaaskelainen, Kevin Davies, Matt Taylor, El-Hadji Diouf, Andy O´Brien, Ricardo Gardner, Ivan Campo and Gavin McCann who are all expected to return on Sunday.

And Megson, who has no regrets about fielding an under-strength side said: "I´ve said all along our main aim is to retain our place in the Premier League. Now I expect all the players left behind to put a shift in at the JJB on Sunday, and hopefully get us a result."
