Owen Coyle hailed the character of Gary Cahill after the Chelsea target scored Bolton's winner as they came from behind to beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park.

Coyle's decision to keep faith with the defender even though he looks set to leave the club proved a shrewd one and the Scot paid tribute to Cahill's mental strength.

"It can't be easy when it is a club of Chelsea's stature and a fee has been agreed," Coyle said.
