Stuart Holden insists confidence remains high as Bolton continue to upset their critics this season.
Owen Coyle's team have silenced the doubters to sit in sixth position in the Premier League table after losing just three times so far in the current campaign.
It has been suggested that Bolton could continue to push for a place in Europe and Holden, who has been excellent since arriving this term, sees no reason why not.
After scoring Sunday's late winner against Blackburn, the USA midfielder said in The Sun: "I don't think we're surprised by how well we've done, but other people may be.
"We've always had that belief. I see it every day in training and now we're translating it into games.
"It's a great feeling and a great place to be at the moment. Confidence is high."
