The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

FOR­MER Bolton mid­fielder Ste­lios Gian­nakopou­los is con­fi­dent his old club can avoid relegation to League One, de­spite their re­cent dip in form.

Greece in­ter­na­tional Gian­nakopou­los helped the Trot­ters to Premier League safety a decade ago

The 43-year-old said: “The man­ager, the play­ers, the fans de­serve big credit from where they have come from.

“You would not have be­lieved they had a chance to stay up. They did it once and got out of the bot­tom three – why can’t they do it again?”
