Bolton boss Coyle urges Reo-Coker to play through pain barrier

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle is asking Nigel Reo-Coker to play through the pain barrier tomorrow against West Bromwich Albion.

Coyle needs him against West Brom tomorrow as Sean Davis, Ricardo Gardner, Tyrone Mears, Gretar Steinsson, Fabrice Muamba, Stuart Holden, Chung-Yong Lee and Darren Pratley are out.

Coyle said: "Nigel came off injured which is not great. We'll give him until the last minute. Given the heart he's got, he's always got a chance.

"He's an outstanding young man, someone who puts his heart and soul into everything he does.

"He has had to play a number of times not fully fit as we've been decimated in that area.

"There are a lot of other players carrying knocks but all we're concerned with is the last two games. If we win it'll be enough to stay in the Premier League."
