Coyle: Davies right to feel aggrieved

Bolton manager Owen Coyle believes Kevin Davies was within his rights to criticise referee Mark Clattenburg.The club captain claimed the official denied him a legitimate goal on Saturday because of "something personal".Davies thought he had headed a late winner against Fulham at the Reebok Stadium only for Clattenburg to disallow his effort for a push on Brede Hangeland.There are now concerns the FA could take action against Davies for his comments but Coyle hopes those fears are unfounded."He certainly shouldn't be reprimanded. Kevin is a very honest player," Coyle said. "He is a physical player, that's the way he plays the game. But he probably gets hit more than anyone else as well. You need a balance."He is a terrific captain and a terrific player, who scored a perfectly good goal. It is only right he feels aggrieved."
