Bolton boss Owen Coyle is remaining positive about his side's chances when they take on league leaders Manchester City this weekend.

The 19th-placed Trotters take on the Premiership favourites at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday but Coyle is giving his team a chance to mix it with Roberto Mancini's charges on the day.

"We go to Manchester City and again everybody will be writing us off as they do," he told Sky Sports News.

"Can you compete with a club like that over 38 games? No, but on any given day, absolutely.

"To do that we need every one of our players, not six or seven, but 11 to be focused, doing their job to the maximum and if you do that you can achieve results."
