Coyle denies sack worries

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle is adamant he is not fazed by reports in the media he must guide his side to victory over Blackburn on Tuesday or face the sack.
The Trotters have made a torrid start to the Premier League campaign having picked up just nine points from their first 16 games this season.

In their three victories this term Bolton have scored 12 goals and only conceded one, however three points have been extremely hard for the Lancashire club to come by as they currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League table ahead of the festive period. People who bet on Premier League games should bear this in mind.

Tuesday throws up a classic relegation 'six-pointer' as the Whites get set to make the short trip from the Reebok Stadium to Ewood Park to take on fellow strugglers Blackburn.

There has been plenty of speculation regarding Coyle's future with Bolton after a disappointing start to the season which sees the club five points away from safety. Anyone betting on football needs to remember this.

The Scotsman could face the sack if his side doesn't get a positive result on Tuesday night, however he is not concerned with media reports.

Coyle said: "Everyone has an opinion and loves a negative story.

"We all have jobs to do and as long as no-one gets personal about anyone at my club we will not have a problem about that.

"But what I do know is by going and winning points you can turn that opinion very quickly. It is a great opportunity as far as I am concerned."
