Laurent Koscielny insists Arsenal will not take Bolton lightly when they travel to the Reebok Stadium on Wednesday night.

Arsenal head to Lancashire in search of their first win in four Premier League fixtures against a Bolton side that lies just one place outside the relegation zone.

Owen Coyle’s side produced an upset in last season’s corresponding fixture and Koscielny is wary of a repeat.

“It was a difficult game like every game in England is,” the defender told Arsenal Player. “You know the whole team wants to win the game.

“We know we will go to Bolton to win it and we must get the three points. It is very important to get that fourth place.

“It is difficult because every team who battles relegation wants to do everything to stay in this league. We know in England that there is a fighting spirit on the pitch, with atmosphere in the stands.

“We know last year that we lost at Bolton, this year we lost at Blackburn and they were difficult, difficult games. But we must go there to win the points.”
