No player epitomises Bolton's fighting spirit more than Kevin Davies, who has been a talismanic figure since he joined the club in the summer of 2003.
2011/12 saw Davies spend more time on the bench than in previous seasons, with increased competition for places in the forward positions, but he still made 32 appearances in the league, netting a total of eight goals.
The former Chesterfield, Southampton and Blackburn man now has 369 Wanderers appearances in all competitions and will be aiming to make it to 400 this season after recently signing a one-year contract extension which will keep him here until June 2013.
When Kevin Nolan departed to Newcastle United in January 2008, the hugely respected striker was the natural choice to succeed him as captain, and he has carried out the role with typical enthusiasm ever since.
Speaking after his appointment, Davies said: "I've always been prepared to put my body on the line for Bolton Wanderers.
"I feel I have the respect from the fans, the players and the staff here so I'm really excited and now I just want to try and set an example during the time that I wear the captain's armband."
Davies notched his 50th goal for Bolton during the 2-1 home victory against West Ham in February of 2009.
He was also the worthy winner of the 2009 Player of the Year award and, most recently, the 2011 Community Player of the Year accolade.
In October 2010 the 35-year-old earned international recognition, winning his first England cap in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro at Wembley.
