Under-fire Bolton Wanderers boss Phil Parkinson had no desire to talk about the pressure which he finds himself under at The Macron Stadium following Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Swansea City according to The Bolton News.

Wanderers lost their fourth consecutive match in the Sky Bet Championship with Barrie McKay lashing in a fine winning goal for the visitors early in the game.

Despite a bright start to the season, a poor run of form has seen The Trotters slip to second bottom of the league table and the pressure continues to increase on under-fire boss Parkinson.

Speaking in the post-match press conference, Parkinson avoided the questions surrounding his immediate future at the Lancashire club and insisted that his side are doing everything in their power to turn their fortunes around.

“I’m not going to talk about myself” Parkinson told The Bolton News.

“We are giving everything we can. That’s all I can say. And people can see that.

“Some of the approach play, again, has been excellent. Systems, style of play, we can all analyse everything and we always will, but it all boils down to sticking the ball into the back of the net and that has been the story of the day.”

Bolton Wanderers were just minutes from a return to Sky Bet League One on the final day of last season before two late goals saw them beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 at The Macron Stadium to secure a dramatic escape from the dreaded drop.

They started the new campaign unbeaten in their first four matches but have won just once since and are now in freefall.

It doesn’t get any easier for Wanderers after the international break. They face two fixture on the road against Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday.
