Bolton manager Owen Coyle wants his players to take strength from the fighting qualities shown by Fabrice Muamba when they return to Premier League action on Saturday.

Coyle admits he does not know how Bolton will cope against Blackburn following the trauma endured over the past week, since Muamba suffered the cardiac arrest at Tottenham that nearly claimed his life. However, the Scot does feel Muamba has shown the way by winning his personal battle despite his heart stopping for 78 minutes.

"If Fabrice can show what a battler is, I am sure we can play a football match," said Coyle.
