Coyle has fingers crossed for happy Bolton weekend

Owen Coyle is hoping his Bolton side can overcome a season of turmoil and retain their status in the Premier League.

The Trotters need to beat Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday and hope that Manchester City defeat QPR for them to remain in the top flight and Coyle feels it would be a great ending to a very tough season if they can achieve that.

"It has just been incredible, with everything that happened to Fabrice (Muamba) as well," he said.

"It has been great to see his smile now - how well he is recovering is a big positive that has come out of everything.

"There has been huge trauma and turmoil in terms of injuries and illness, but we have just got on with it and always remained grounded.

"We also know that after everything that has happened, we have an opportunity come Sunday to go and win that game and be smiling on Sunday night."
