Coyle content for Bolton's fate to be in their own hands

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has warned against writing Bolton off as they fight relegation from the Premiership, noting their destiny lines in their own hands. The Scot has challenged his side to repeat the second-half performance they produced in last night's 2-1 win at Aston Villa for the remainder of the campaign.

Bolton lie in 18th place but are now only one point behind QPR and Wigan and still have a game in hand after chalking up a fourth victory in the last seven games.

Coyle said: "We've got 13 points from the last 21 and have been in good form. Our rivals have been winning as well but we know what we have got to do.

"We have got to make sure we produce performances like the second half against Villa to remain in the Premier League.

"We have been decimated by injuries but are still in there fighting and our destiny is in our own hands.

"The lads stood up again to be counted away from home in a hostile atmosphere and came from behind for the second time in three days to get something from the game [after Saturday's 1-1 draw against Swansea]."
