Bolton Boss: Improved Ameobi Will Be Important Vs Fulham

By James Agberebi: Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson has stated that Nigerian forward Sammy Ameobi could once again be the star man when they host an in-form Fulham in Saturday’s Championship clash.

Ameobi was the hero for Bolton in their 1-0 home win against Bristol City last Friday.

Up next for the Trotters is a big clash against Fulham who have won their last five league games and are currently sixth with 51 points in the 24-team league table. Bolton are 20th on 29 points.

“Sessegnon is a great talent,” Parkinson told The Bolton News. “But I have to say, I think Sammy did great against him down at Craven Cottage. He rose to the challenge playing against a player the country has been talking about.

    This guy has been playing some fantastic football of late. One-on-one, he’s about the best guy in the champoinship right now. Not the best of runner though, but I’ve been very impressed with the way he bursts in from the left, bringing his mates into play with his hold-up game and he’s got some very nice torches and shots out there. I won’t mind if Genort Rohr runs the rule over him as we prepare for the world cup, his antecedent of turning us down, notwithstanding.
