Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle intends to play Tim Ream against FA Cup opponents Millwall.

Coyle insists he can handle his baptism of fire in today's FA Cup fifth-round clash.

Coyle said: "Millwall are a very good side so we're under no illusions about how difficult a task it is.

"But I've got no doubts about Tim's ability to cope. He's athletic, he's young, he's going to get better and he's very comfortable on the ball. It's a different style of football to the MLS and Tim will have to adjust quickly.

"Each week will be a real challenge but he's got the tools to deal with that. Nothing beats being involved in games, so he played behind closed doors and came through it well.

"Intense training has brought him on and he'll certainly feature at Millwall."
