Bolton manager Owen Coyle will lead the thanks to Tottenham for their impeccable behaviour after Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest when the two sides play their re-arranged FA Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane tonight.
More positive news on Muamba's recovery at the London Chest Hospital means Bolton's players should approach the game with a reduced amount of the tension that might have been expected on a return to the ground where they endured such horrors 10 days ago. But, keen as he is to win, Coyle will not forget the instant reaction from the stands.
He said: "We are engrossed in this football world. When events like that transpire, you think 'hold on a minute' and get a different perspective. Tottenham is going to be another very emotional night. But it gives both teams an opportunity to thank both wonderful sets of fans for their reaction to what happened and the aftermath."
