Bolton manager Owen Coyle is urging his players to continue on their merry way as they look to avoid the drop this season.

The 18th-placed Trotters produced a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Aston Villa last night to go just one point in arrears of the safety zone and the boss is confident his injury-hit team has enough character and spirit to keep recording the points they require in the final four matches of the campaign.

"People keep writing my lads off, and I say 'carry on doing it' because I know what we have got in that dressing room," he said.

"We have got four cup finals left but we always knew we were masters of our own destiny, which is good.

"There's still a lot of hard work to be done but there's so much character in this squad."
