Coyle wary of Bale threat

04 November 2010 04:00
Bolton manager Owen Coyle concedes it will be "difficult" trying to stop Gareth Bale but believes his players will rise to the challenge. Bale was outstanding down the left on Tuesday as Tottenham romped to a 3-1 victory against holders Inter Milan in the Champions League. Next stop is the Reebok Stadium on Saturday with feisty full-back Gretar Steinsson expected to shadow the galloping Welshman. Coyle said: "How do you stop Bale? With difficulty. But it is the same every week in this league. "If it is not Gareth Bale, it is Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Wayne Rooney or (Dimitar) Berbatov. That is why we love being at this level. "You are playing against outstanding players, world class players. We will be respectful of the opposition but we won't be fearful."
