Owen Coyle has cooled talk of Bolton qualifying for Europe this season - saying the Trotters are simply aiming to better last season's finish.[LNB] Following Saturday's 3-2 Premier League win at Wolves, Wanderers have now lost only once in nine league games.[LNB]But with supporters' expectations now raised, Coyle has stressed that his overall target for the season - to improve on last year's 14th-place finish - has not changed.[LNB]"My aspirations are well-documented," Coyle said.[LNB]"At any football club that I'm fortunate enough to be the manager of, I always try to improve that club on a year on year basis, recognising that some years it is easier than others in terms of finance.[LNB]"Sometimes you can go and spend and we have not had that luxury this year, but we have a group of players who give everything they have got.[LNB]"The group is a joy to work with and we have to keep striving to be the best we can.[LNB]"We have shown that we can go toe-to-toe with the best, that we can defend for our lives if we have to and we can show a little bit of quality on the ball."
