Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has dubbed Kevin Davies the great "allrounder".

Davies has earned a reputation in the Barclays Premier League for being over-physical at times, and he is by no means the most prolific of his generation, but Coyle thinks the player will get the best out of his team-mates if handed his debut.

"I think he can bring the best out of people. He can lead the line himself and if you want to play one up front with two wide he will flick things through for the wingers," said the Bolton boss.

"Not only can he score goals, he can create for others and he is a terrific all-round player.

"He has so many different dimensions he can help a team. Many players have benefited from him before.

"Nicolas Anelka, I think, will tell you what a fantastic partner Kevin Davies was."
