Premier League Preview - Bolton Wanderers

It's fair to say that Gary Megson wasn't exactly welcomed with open arms by fans at the Reebok Stadium, but despite failing to win over many of the supporters, he has brought in some quality this summer meaning that Bolton should be capable of steering clear of the relegation dogfight.

Megson joined bottom-of-the-table Bolton in October 2007, taking over from Sammy Lee who had only been able to collect five points from a possible 30. He successfully steered the club to Premier League survival, beating league-leaders Manchester United in the process.

Despite a shaky start to the 2008-09 season, Megson was given the luxury of time by his Chairman, and managed to steer his side back on track, eventually securing a solid 13th place finish and avoiding the relegation scrap that many had expected.

During his time at the Reebok, Megson's transfer business has proved influential. He brought in attacking midfielder Matt Taylor from Portsmouth in January 2008 for £4 million - an excellent deal for a proven Premier League midfielder. To date, Taylor has scored 13 goals from 50 appearances and Megson will be hoping that he can contribute further this year.

Zat Knight's transfer from Aston Villa this summer looks to be solid, and the experienced Sean Davis will help to bolster Bolton's midfield. Megson has also moved to add experience to his defence in the form of 30-year-old left-back Paul Robinson, and 27-year-old Hull City full-back Sam Ricketts.

Much like Blackburn, Bolton will look to secure a mid-table finish, but if they can continue to progress gradually under Megson as they have done during his tenure, there is no reason why they cannot better their 13th place finish last season, with a European spot a faint possibility.
