Bolton manager Owen Coyle wants his team to shake off any feelings of self-pity when they face Tottenham.
Coyle's side suffered a narrow defeat to Liverpool on Sunday while the visitors go into the match on the back of a victory against holders Inter Milan in the Champions League.
Coyle said: "We have been terrific as a team. We have to make sure we do not feel sorry for ourselves.
"It is a great game to do it against a team who gave an outstanding performance in midweek when they faced the champions of Europe."
