Coyle still focused fully on Muamba

Published Add your comment

Bolton manager Owen Coyle believes it is still too early to focus on his side's relegation battle despite the encouraging progress being made by Fabrice Muamba.

Coyle revealed he had enjoyed a "brief conversation" with the midfielder, who is still in intensive care at The London Chest Hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest in Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham, but he was keen to stress the 23-year-old has a long way to go in his recovery and that Bolton's scheduled game with Blackburn on Saturday remains on the back burner.

"It's very early in the process, the doctors have stressed that so we all know what's involved," Coyle told reporters outside the hospital. "Fabrice still has a long way to go but it's encouraging signs and whilst that is the case it's really positive and we move forward from that point."
