Bolton set for return to action

Published Add your comment

Bolton have confirmed their scheduled Premier League meeting with Blackburn on Saturday will go ahead, as it was revealed Fabrice Muamba was "effectively dead" for 78 minutes following his cardiac arrest at Tottenham on Saturday.

With Muamba making quicker progress than anyone could have expected following the dramatic events at White Hart Lane, manager Owen Coyle spoke with his players on Wednesday morning to see if they wanted to face Blackburn at the weekend.

The answer was positive, while Bolton will also head back to Tottenham on Tuesday to play the rearranged FA Cup quarter-final that had to be abandoned by referee Howard Webb after Muamba's collapse.
