Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan believes the Trotters can win out in their 'mini league' to secure top-flight survival.
With 11 games to go, it seems three out of the current bottom five - QPR, Blackburn, Wolves, Bolton and Wigan - will be relegated, given 15th-placed Aston Villa are eight points clear.
Two points separate the bottom five and the Trotters have crucial clashes coming up, starting at home to QPR on Saturday.
Owen Coyle's side then take on Villa on 20th March, followed by clashes with relegation rivals Blackburn and Wolves on the last two Saturdays in March.
While the Trotters have lost their last four top-flight games, Bogdan is backing Coyle's side to start picking up points.
He told The Bolton News: "We are in a very, very hard situation, so now we have to take it as a mini competition, a mini cup between these teams.
"They are struggling at the moment and we have to pick up points. I believe we can do it and it starts on Saturday."
