Bolton manager Owen Coyle is taking full responsibility for his side's lowly position in the Barclays Premier League.

The Trotters lie rock bottom of the table after a 2-0 defeat at Fulham in west London. Clint Dempsey and Bryan Ruiz netted the all-important first-half goals that condemned Bolton to a 13th defeat in 16 league games.

"My chairman and owner understand me," Coyle said. "They know exactly what I am doing at the football club and how we want to proceed in the long term. But equally I accept everything I put in term for the longevity and future of the club has to be backed up by results in the Barclays Premier League."
