ALL is not lost in Bolton Wanderers' battle to stay in the Premiership. And the resurgence of team hopes could start on Saturday when they play Sheffield Wednesday.

If we all put our hearts and minds behind the town's team, we give our undoubtedly talented players a boost of confidence.

A Premiership team in a town is not simply about football; it is about national profile and commercial success, and it's a success that spreads. Let's try and keep it that way.
