Bolton midfielder Stuart Holden has revealed he believes Bolton’s squad can cope with the demands of an FA Cup run, as well as Bolton’s push for a Europa League place in the Premier League.
Bolton beat Fulham 1-0 away in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday, just four days after defeating Wigan in their fourth round replay and look forward to a trip to St Andrews to play Birmingham in the quarter finals.
With Chelsea out, and United set to play Arsenal, there is a feeling that this year’s FA Cup is wide open again.
Bolton, now managed by former Burnley boss Owen Coyle, are also eight in the league, and are still in with a realistic chance of Europa League qualification.
“We can fight on two fronts,” said Holden to the Bolton News
“We’re a little bit thin at the back but when guys have been asked to fill in they have done well. Going forward and in midfield we’ve got a number of options.
“When we have made changes we have still been able to get results, and that gives us confidence and momentum to go and get more of them.”
