Bolton manager Owen Coyle has revealed that Fabrice Muamba sent a good luck message to his team-mates on the eve of their 2-1 win over Blackburn at the Reebok Stadium.

Muamba remains in intensive care at the London Chest Hospital after he suffered a cardiac arrest at Tottenham seven days ago that stopped his heart beating for 78 minutes. Thankfully, the 23-year-old has started to recover and was well enough to add his hopes for a positive outcome to an emotionally charged day.

And Coyle expects the message will be returned, through Muamba's father Marcel and fiancee Shauna, that Bolton are out of the relegation zone. The Scot said: "Fabrice managed to send us a message through one of the consultants to say he wished the lads well."
