Bolton manager Gary Megson believes he has no option but to field a team full of fringe players in their UEFA Cup clash with Red Star Belgrade on Thursday night.

Megson admits it is a dilemma trying to pick specific teams for specific games and cites the case of Steve Coppell last season when the Reading boss intimated that his fast-improving side were not ready for Europe.

Megson said: "Some thought it was a bit strange for Steve to say what he did. But he was fully aware of the squad he had and the problems Europe would create. So we are in a similar situation although we have been in the Premier League a lot longer than Reading."
