Marcos Alonso: Has his sights on a victory in Saturday's Lancashire derby

The Spaniard is enjoying his best spell at the club, after suffering several injuries whilst the Trotters were in the Premier League.

Now he is settled, the defender is focused on getting Bolton away from a position that he feels they don't deserve to be in.

"It is difficult to come down from the Premier League to get the motivation of the team right," he told Sky Sports.

"We have been too inconsistent, and not been scoring enough goals. I think we just need a bit more luck and the goals will come.

"We have played better than most of our opponents in recent months, but have not been getting the results, which is worrying.

An ideal time for Dougie Freedman's side to get their first win of 2013 would be in Saturday's Lancashire derby with Burnley at the Reebok Stadium, and Alonso appreciates the importance of the encounter.

"We are hungry for revenge," he added.

"A win tomorrow at home in the local derby will give us strength to keep going for the rest of the season."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
