Bolton boss Owen Coyle feels Wednesday's Barclays Premier League home game against Tottenham could present a "wonderful opportunity" for Fabrice Muamba to thank fans and players from both clubs for their support following his cardiac arrest last month.

Since he collapsed on the pitch during an FA Cup tie against Spurs at White Hart Lane on March 17 - after which his heart stopped beating naturally for 78 minutes - Muamba has made a remarkable recovery, and he was discharged from hospital two weeks ago.

On Saturday the 24-year-old former England Under-21 midfielder took to his Twitter account for the first time since the incident, posting a message to thank people for their "prayers, love and support" and wishing his team-mates well ahead of their match at Sunderland that afternoon, which they drew 2-2.
