Coyle takes positive approach

19 January 2010 05:59
The Trotters are set to face the Gunners in midweek for the second time in four days, having slipped to a 2-0 defeat at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday.

The trip to the capital represents a rearranged fixture for Coyle's men, with the recent bad weather having put paid to the initial meeting on 6th January.

Bolton's new boss admits facing the same opponents, especially title-chasing ones, twice in such a short space of time is far from ideal, as his side are desperate for points in their battle to beat the drop.

However, Coyle believes the Trotters offered enough on home soil to suggest they are capable of competing against Arsene Wenger's men and expects another positive performance in the return clash.

"I don't think it is ideal for anybody but you have to play the best teams when you're asked to play," said Coyle.

"We've been asked to play and we'll go there and play it and we'll do our best.

"It's a game that probably not a lot of people will give us a chance in but I believe we have.

"I think we offered enough the other day to show we can pose them problems and that is what we have to do - recognising that they have quality and we have to try and curtail that in some way.

"We will go there with a positive head on, look to commit players forward every way we can and try and achieve a positive result."
