Bolton captain Kevin Nolan has paid tribute to new manager Gary Megson for the boost he has given the players.
The Trotters drew 1-1 with Aston Villa in Megson's first game in charge and Nolan salvaged another point on Sunday with a last-gasp equaliser against West Ham.
Bolton remain in the bottom three but Nolan has been delighted with the impact of Megson and is confident results will continue to improve.
"Gary Megson has been a real breath of fresh air," Nolan told the club's official website.
"He came in and we've started to play better. He's told us what he wants and that's given us a starting point.
"The players were low on confidence but he's come in and given us a boost."
Nolan admits it was important to escape from the game against West Ham with another 1-1 draw.
"It was great for the lads and it showed the desire and commitment we have," he explained.
"Now we need to start turning these draws into wins. We know we are in a fight and we will make sure we'll fight to the end."
Bolton have also confirmed that Nicky Hunt dislocated a shoulder and will face a spell on the sidelines.
The defender was replaced at half-time and later taken to a local hospital.
A further assessment will be made on Monday to determine how long Hunt could be out for.
