Bolton boss Owen Coyle urged his side to stand up and be counted after they scraped a 1-1 draw against Swansea at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday.

The point saw them drop to 19th place in the Barclays Premier League table and piled the pressure on for when they play Aston Villa in one of their games in hand on Tuesday. The Trotters found themselves behind inside six minutes as Scott Sinclair curled in a beauty and, although Chris Eagles equalised eight minutes later, Swansea dominated the second half.

Coyle said: "We came here wanting the three points and we've taken one. Sometimes you've got to stand up and be counted, take that ball and be brave in possession.
