Dougie Freedman has insisted that he will be given time to turn the fortunes of Bolton Wanderers around following his side's latest defeat.
It was another difficult evening on Wednesday as Bolton slipped to a 4-0 loss against Fulham at Craven Cottage, but Freedman is confident that he can achieve success at the club.
"It's a difficult job and it's proving to be more difficult that I thought," the Scot told reporters. "But I feel very confident we can do it. Will I be given time? I think so.
"The performance was concerning. We've gifted them a goal once again. We've got to stop giving away silly goals.
"We need a result. I've told the players they are in a relegation battle, with a big R."
Bolton currently sit 23rd in the Championship with five points from 10 games.
