Bolton manager Coyle expecting tough Millwall meeting

Bolton boss Owen Coyle does not expect Millwall to roll over when the two clubs meet this weekend.

The top flight Trotters are away to the Championship outfit at the New Den in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday and Coyle is well aware that Kenny Jackett and his men will make life extremely difficult for the visitors.<>"It's a tie that we are looking forward to and, first and foremost, we have to go and play the game. We were disappointed by the performance last Saturday, there's no doubt about that.

"Millwall have shown their qualities recently; they won at Southampton in the previous round, they should have beaten Derby at home last week and had to settle for a 0-0, while they were very unlucky not to take all the points at Brighton on Tuesday night when they led twice.

"They have got a good balance of youth and experience, and so there's no doubt that it will be a extremely tough tie.

"But for our part, it's the FA Cup and it's a great opportunity to get into the last eight of the competition.

"We are going to have to play very well because an away draw in the FA Cup is never easy, as Macclesfield showed us back in the third round.

"But if we bring the level of performance that we did against Liverpool and Arsenal, we know that we can be in the hat for the quarter-final draw."
