Bolton boss Owen Coyle claims Saturday's opponents Tottenham are the favourites to win the FA Cup despite a recent slump.

Coyle has rejected any suggestion that Spurs may have been suffering from distractions due to the speculation over Harry Redknapp and the England manager's job - and insists Tottenham, who have lost their last three Barclays Premier League matches, have just been unlucky.

A place in the semi-finals is at stake for whoever emerges triumphant from the Saturday team-time clash at White Hart Lane, and Coyle says Bolton could not have had a tougher draw.
