Coyle was delighted to see the home fans get right behind Bolton and he was pleased to give them something to smile about after a tough stat to the season.
"I thought the fans were magnificent. They got behind the team from start to finish and it was nice to reward them and put a smile on their faces.
"They've backed everyone that is at the club from me as the manager to the players to the hilt.
"We'll always have a few here and there but in the main they've been brilliant and it was good to reward them."
