Owen Coyle felt his Bolton side let victory slip through their fingers after an entertaining 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest at the Reebok Stadium.

Lewis McGugan's thunderbolt gave Forest a 15th-minute lead before Chris Eagles levelled and Marvin Sordell put the hosts ahead, but Andy Reid found a sumptuous finish of his own following good work from Dexter Blackstock and Simon Cox to put Forest on terms once more before the hour.

Having acknowledged the excellence of McGugan's strike, Coyle stated Forest's equaliser was avoidable and bemoaned his players' profligacy after half-time. He said: "Truth be told we really should have put the game to bed at 2-1. The chances we had to finish the game off were real goalscoring opportunities, not half-chances."
