Coyle admits Bolton players will 'try' against Blackburn

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle doesn't expect a rip-roaring performance from his players against Blackburn Rovers this weekend.

Despite the need for points, Coyle says the health of Fabrice Muamba remains the all important.

"Football is not more important than what has happened," said Coyle.

"Nobody is more passionate about football than me. Is the game important? Yes in the context of the Premier League, and we will do our best.

"But football is not the be all and end all. What happened to Fabrice on Saturday puts everything in perspective and our first thoughts will be with him."
