Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba believes he is currently playing the best football of his career - thanks to boss Owen Coyle.

The 21-year-old is intent on keeping Bolton in the Barclays Premier League.

And Muamba feels with Coyle at the helm, it has become a question of when and not if it happens, with Wanderers eight points clear of the relegation zone.

"We'll definitely stay up. Another two wins and we should be fine," was Muamba's forthright response when asked as to Bolton's chances.

"Since the gaffer has come in things have changed, and you can see the way we have been playing and the confidence in the team.

"That's credit to the manager and the staff, and hopefully we can continue this way for the rest of the season.

"I know I've enjoyed playing under him so far. I would say I've been in the best form of my career.

"That's down to the manager and the confidence he has instilled in me. I'm just so happy he is here."
