Kevin Davies: "A Few of the Substitutes Refused to Warm Up" At The Den

Saturday's match at Millwall is no doubt a big one for Bolton Wanderers. Ahead of the game, Kevin Davies has revealed that he does not want to see the Bolton players back down at all.

There is absolutely no question that Millwall have a reputation that precedes them. A lot of people will remember the stories of hooliganism, clashes with rival fans, and the infamous incident(s) at Luton Town. The atmosphere at Millwall is still one that is well known and one that players and fans alike are wary of despite attendance at the Den largely being a shadow of it once was.

Bolton visited Millwall last season in the fifth round of the FA Cup and walked out of the Den 2-0 winners. The match was Tim Ream's debut and Ryo Miyaichi's only goal for Bolton Wanderers.

Kevin Davies, who had a brief loan stint at Millwall in 2002 (scoring three goals in nine appearances), spoke to the official Bolton website and revealed that the Den got to some of the Bolton substitutes:

"With the size of the stadium, it's not even half full at times but you do hear a lot of things

"I remember going there last year and a few of the substitutes refused to warm up because they were getting verbals. Hopefully I'll get on the pitch this time and help the boys.

"You have to get on with it. We've all played in situations like that and you have to block it out and get on with the game."

Naturally, SKD doesn't want to see a repeat of that and neither do we. However, we'd gladly take that result again.
