Bolton manager Gary Megson is facing the chop at Bolton after the Trotters lost their derby fixture with Blackburn at the weekend. And Alan Shearer is said to be "in the frame".
Chairman Phil Gartside says he is not "pressing panic buttons" after a string of poor results, but rumour are circulating that he could be ready to offer Alan Shearer his first official post as manager.
Megson has rounded on some of his players, accusing them of trying to destabilise the club.
Megson: "Yes, some are trying to destabilise the club, there are bound to be one or two who are not going to be too happy.
"But you have to get on with those kind of things. It is not something that is entirely different at this club than any others.
"You have to make sure it does not become an issue. I am sure it won't be. It is about the players who are playing and the squad that is out there.
"If you are in, great, if you are not you have to get on with it. If another club comes in for you, then you may move on."
Phil Gartside: "The next few games are going to be important as they always are.
"The season is 38 games and we are confident. We have been playing some good football, it's been decent stuff.
"No-one presses panic buttons around here. I have been in the game long enough not to do that."
