Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle admits the club is thrilled with the progress of Fabrice Muamba.

Its been confirmed the midfielder has been able to leave his hospital bed in recent days.

Team-mates Kevin Davies, Nigel Reo-Coker, Darren Pratley and Mark Davies all went to see Muamba last week and it is anticipated different players will be chosen this time.

"The progress Fabrice has made in the space of eight or nine days has been truly remarkable," said Coyle.

"A few of the lads went down to see him last week and there will probably be a small representation to go and see him before the game (tomorrow).

"Everyone would want to be there but that would be impossible and Fabrice's recovery is paramount.

"The players who do go can filter back the news. That will help.

"Fabrice is not just a team-mate and a colleague. He is a dear friend to those lads. They want to know he is getting better."
