Coyle: I thanked Bolton players inside huddle

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle was proud of his players after victory over Blackburn Rovers on a highly charged day.

The noise increased as fans sat opposite the main stand combined to hold up a massive 'Muamba 6' card and the 23-year-old's name was sung immediately before kick-off, and then at the end as Bolton celebrated victory with a mass huddle.

"It is a private thing," said Coyle, when asked what had been said.

"I wanted to thank everybody for their efforts.

"It has been an emotional week and the players were out on their feet at the end, both physically and mentally.

"But that is a small thing compared to the fight Fabrice has got."
