Bolton boss Owen Coyle is convinced his players have the quality to beat relegation - but needs them to show it now.

The Trotters missed the chance to move out of the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday night as they were beaten 4-1 in their game in hand by Tottenham at the Reebok Stadium, and they now trail 17th-placed QPR only on goal difference.

They now host mid-table West Brom on Sunday before travelling to Stoke on the final day of the season, and Coyle said: "I have said to the players, as young a group as they are, 'You have got to stand up and be counted and show your character in adversity, and you have got to come through'."
