Bolton boss Coyle to rest Arsenal loanee Ryo

Bolton boss Owen Coyle is monitoring on loan winger Ryo Miyaichi’s fitness levels as the busy Easter programme looms.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle is monitoring on loan winger Ryo Miyaichi’s fitness levels as the busy Easter programme looms.

The Japanese teenager has made a big impact since joining from Arsenal in January.

But Coyle felt Miyaichi was showing signs of fatigue in Saturday's 3-2 win over Wolves, their third victory in a row, and is wary of pushing him too hard with two games to come in three days.

Coyle told the Bolton News: "For Ryo's part, there has been an awful lot asked of the kid, with the amount of games he's had. I thought he was feeling it a little bit in his legs at the end of the (Wolves) game.

"We will need to get him rested up as best as we can to make sure he's ready to play a part this weekend."
