Kevin Davies: Ready to lead fight for survival from the front for Bolton
Bolton striker Kevin Davies has urged the Wanderers attack to bare their teeth and provide the goals that will fire them to safety.
Wanderers are just one point, and two places, above the relegation zone after losing both of their games over the Easter period.
Tottenham's involvement in the FA Cup this weekend means the Trotters will have an opportunity to rest as they prepare for the final six games of the season.
Davies returned to the starting line-up for the game against Newcastle where they lost 2-0, but it was the number of chances missed that concerned him the most.
"We need to get a bit more ruthless," Davies told the Bolton News.
"Their goalkeeper made two excellent saves (from Chris Eagles and Mark Davies), and when Martin (Petrov) put one great ball across the box, neither I nor Darren Pratley could get our toe to it.
"It's difficult to take, but we have to try and gain some positives because for 75 minutes we were well in the game and unfortunate not to be in the lead.
"It's another opportunity gone. We were playing against a side high in confidence, and we restricted them to very few chances. I don't think Adam (Bogdan) had a lot to do.
"We created a few fantastic chances, and if we'd taken one of them it would have given us that boost. The worst we would have had then would have been a point.
"It's hard to take when you feel like you have played so well but come away with nothing again."
