Bolton are currently right in the midst of a relegation battle, sat second bottom of the table with 23 points, three behind Rotherham United who occupy the final safe spot.
Nobody has scored fewer goals than Phil Parkinson’s side this season as well with the trotters netting just 19 times in 30 matches – even bottom club Ipswich Town have managed four more.
Winger Will Buckley remains the club’s top-scorer this season with just four goals with strikers Josh Magennis and Sammy Ameobi scoring just six times between them, leading to calls for Parkinson to dip into the free agent market.
And he hinted that could be a possibility on Thursday.

A move for Sheffield United striker Ched Evans fell through on transfer deadline day last week with Fleetwood Town refusing to let him leave his loan deal with them.
So it remains likely that Parkinson will want to add some more firepower to his side.
But what do the fans make of the update?
Whilst the sensible & obvious next step to take, its still very much a plan of last resort and of scraping the barrel. However, we got Karl Henry via this route, so fingers crossed there’s someone decent out there. A striker is a big ask though…

Meggenis is not out of form, you won't pick him. It is either diliberate or bizarre

To be left with only two senior “strikers” is criminal.

This is what happens when you alienate and then release your best natural goalscorer from his contract early because you've no idea how to use him
