Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle says they're ready to return to playing with Fabrice Muamba now making a positive recovery.

Coyle spoke to his players at training this morning to see whether they wanted to face Blackburn this weekend, the response was unanimous.

"We spoke together with the players as a group this morning and I talked with Fabrice's family last night," Coyle told bwfc.co.uk.

"Fabrice's father Marcel and his fiance Shauna were keen that we fulfil our fixtures. Once the players knew this there was no doubt in our mind that we would play the matches."
