Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle says his players have the stomach for a relegation scrap.

Coyle has backed his players to have the mental strength to ensure they do not get KO’d in the race to beat the drop.

He said: “The players have shown they are up for a fight, they’ve shown they have quality, not just physically but mentally.

“But from the start of the season we’ve been down at the bottom and you have to have a mental strength to come through that.

“We must be ready to keep bringing that mental strength and get ourselves over the line.”
