Bolton manager Owen Coyle has called on his players to regroup quickly after their survival setback at the hands of Fulham.

The Trotters missed a chance to pull clear of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone as they slumped 3-0 to the Clint Dempsey-inspired Londoners at the Reebok Stadium. Results elsewhere meant they stayed outside the bottom three but Coyle felt his side, after winning their three previous games, had spurned a good opportunity for more points.

Coyle, who takes his side to Newcastle on Monday, said: "We under-achieved and let ourselves down, no doubt about it. It is a setback and of course we are disappointed, particularly at home. Our home form had been very good of late and we were looking to capitalise on that. We now have to play again on Monday and we have to get ourselves up for that."
