American international Stuart Holden has pledged his future to Bolton Wanderers, even if they lose their battle against relegation.
Bolton head in this weekend, knowing that their Premier League future is not in their own hands.
Bolton need champions-elect Manchester City to beat Queens Park Rangers, whilst also grabbing three points themselves at Stoke City.
Holden himself has been unable to take any part in Bolton's season as he has been sidelined for almost all of the last 16-months with knee problems.
"I have a firm belief that won't change until the last whistle of the last game that Bolton Wanderers will remain in the Premier League," he told The Bolton News.
"There's nothing I can do and that's the hardest part for me. I can't affect the results on the pitch in terms of playing.
"But I am happy at Bolton Wanderers and I know that this is the right place for me.
"I'm a part of this club and you live and die by that. You ride the high waves and you ride the low ones.
"You can't start thinking two steps ahead because you can only really affect the present.
"We have the characters, the quality and the right people in charge to steer the ship right.
"At the end of the day, everyone wants to be a Premier League footballer and that's why everyone is at Bolton Wanderers.
"We want to play in the Premier League but it is exclusively down to us to make sure that happens.
"Whether you're contracted or out-of-contract, all that is cast aside when you go out and step over the white line.
"All that stuff that can be talked about in the locker room or the dressing room, once you get out on the pitch you're representing not the name on your back but the club whose badge is over your heart.
"That's the spirit that the gaffer has installed at Bolton for a while and that's what we need to play for.
"You get individual accolades - player of the year or goalscorers - but at the root, football is a team game and you live and die by the results of the team."
