After 10 games the Trotters, along with Sheffield Wednesday, are yet to claim a league win this season.

At the end of last week Freedman brought in Cardiff's Kevin McNaughton, Leicester's Neil Danns and Millwall's Liam Feeney in a bid to lift Bolton out of their current slump.

All three made their full debuts in the 0-0 draw with Blackpool on Tuesday night and while Feeney was singled out for praise due to his frequent, foraging runs down the right flank, the Trotters boss was also pleased with McNaughton and Danns.

"I thought they were great," said Freedman.

"Kevin brings some defensive qualities, he's got that defensive instinct to know where to be. His partnership with Liam was great, the two of them combined fantastically well.

"Neil Danns I know from my (Crystal) Palace days, he's a wholehearted player. I believe if treated right and managed right and trained right he's a real top player.

"They were loan buys that weren't panic-buy loans. When the right names come up we'll try our very best to get them."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
