Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has hailed the fighting spirit of his side after coming back from a two-goal deficit to draw with Birmingham City on Sunday.
The Trotters fell behind and were also reduced to ten men when goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen was sent off in the 36th minute for slapping Roger Johnson in the face after the two tangled but they managed to fight back and score two late goals to get a share of the points, the score finishing at 2-2.
Coyle said it was a great effort by his charges to pick themselves up off the canvas and heaped praise on them after proceedings.
"At 2-0 down you think it is one of those days but I have always stressed I am trying to foster and build a spirit here," he said.
"Hopefully that was evident for everybody. I think we carried the fight.
"I think anybody at that game would have struggled to recognise it was 11 v 10 as we were the team pushing on. We were certainly deserving of a point, minimum."
