Owen Coyle believes he could have led Bolton to promotion despite a faltering start to the npower Championship season.

Wanderers were many observers' pre-season favourites to secure an instant return to the Barclays Premier League, but a lowly standing of 18th position with 11 points from 10 games resulted in Coyle paying with his job.

"We understand we had to hit the ground running this year. It's not happened," he told Sky Sports News. "People say 'is it too early?' - I certainly believe we'd have got promotion from the position we're in."
