Bolton duo Gretar Steinsson and Fabrice Muamba have vented their anger towards criticism of their style of play.
After a difficult start to the campaign, Wanderers have recovered to go on a five-match unbeaten run including wins over West Ham and Birmingham.
Despite the turnaround in form, critics have continued to label the Trotters as a one-dimensional team who favour the long-ball game.
Bolton have racked up 11 goals during their unbeaten spell and defender Steinsson says critics of their style will do little to bother him so long as they continue putting points on the board.
"I really don't care what gets written or said about Bolton," Steinsson told The Bolton News.
"I just care about getting points and seeing us move up the table.
"So long as we come out with a win I don't care how we play, or what style we use. It's show no mercy, really.
"We're not the most popular team in the Premier League, and maybe that's because teams don't like playing against us, especially at the Reebok."
Bolton have made their name in the Premier League off their physical style, with teams often struggling to cope at the Reebok Stadium.
However, the Trotters await their first win in the Premier League at the Reebok so far this term, in a continuation of their indifferent home form last season, but Steinsson feels they can revert to their old ways.
"When you can get the fans going it can be a tough task to play 90 minutes against us," said the Icelandic.
"We didn't do that enough last year, so that is something we have to get back to.
"It's especially important to do that in Bolton in front of your own fans. If we can start getting into people's face a bit more, I think we can get a lot of results this season."
Steinsson's team-mate, and England U21 international, Muamba also believes the Trotters are being victimised for their style which he feels is more common in the Premier League than critics suggest.
"People criticise us without understanding the reality," said Muamba. "The teams who pass the ball all the time are invariably those in the top four.
"The rest pretty much play the same way, so why are we the ones who always get singled out? It's unfair."
