After yet another toothless defeat that extends Bolton’s run without a win to nine games, the question has to be asked, is manager Phil Parkinson’s time up at Bolton?

The former Bradford manager took over at the start of the 2016/17 season, shortly after the side’s relegation to the doldrums of League One.

To his credit he has worked miracles at Bolton, getting the team promoted back to the Championship at the first time of asking and keeping them up on the final day the season after with next to no funding.

However, after what was a promising start to this season that saw Bolton flirting with the playoff places, the team’s form has become the worst in the league.

Bolton last won in September and have only managed two draws in the nine games since.

What do the fans think?

Parkinson has already been under pressure for some weeks, but the latest defeat to Sheffield Wednesday was the final straw for some fans who took to Twitter to express their concerns.

With the pressure mounting ever more on the club and manager to turn things around, Saturday’s derby against Wigan could be make or break for Parkinson.
