Award is for whole club - Coyle

Bolton boss Owen Coyle feels his Barclays Premier League manager of the month award reflects the achievement of the club as a whole over a testing few weeks.

Wanderers were second from bottom after a 2-0 defeat at Manchester City at the beginning of March, but go into this weekend's home game against Fulham in 16th, a point clear of the drop zone with eight games left - one more than the four teams below them.

Notably, the last two wins came after Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest and Coyle has paid tribute to the way the entire club has handled a difficult period, saying: "As much as they call it manager of the month, it is very much a collective effort at our football club."
