Bolton boss Owen Coyle will not be given a transfer war-chest once the January transfer window opens, for the simple fact cash is not available for strengthening.
Wanderers have been stuck in the bottom three of the Premier League virtually all season but will not be trying to buy their way out of trouble.
"I've not had money anywhere I have been before," he told the Bolton News.
"I came to the club two years ago, second-bottom of the league, and never spent a penny.
"We had to be inventive bringing in Stuart Holden, Jack Wilshere and Vladimir Weiss.
"If you don't have money, then there are ways and means of improving your team.
"If we do have the luxury of spending money, then great, but it's not something I'm beating myself up about.
"Whatever hand you are dealt you make the best of it.
"I'm at a fantastic club with great people and we all have to make sure we get ourselves out of the dangerous area we're in."
