Seamus Coleman, Everton FC SEAMUS Coleman today headed out on loan as the Blues prepared to give Owen Coyle the Goodison fear-factor. The highly-rated Irish full-back made the switch to Ian Holloway's Blackpool, as revealed in last weekend's ECHO, after David Moyes agreed to let him gather experience in the Championship. Despite impressing earlier in the season, the 21-year-old has found first-team opportunities hard to come by since Phil Neville returned to fitness. With Tony Hibbert also back from injury, Moyes has allowed Coleman to follow James Vaughan into the second tier of British football to boost his learning curve. Meanwhile, despite only losing twice at Goodison so far this season, Bolton boss Coyle believes Everton are fallible at home. The former Burnley manager insists Goodison is a place where visiting teams can get three points, and Baines wants the home crowd to prove him wrong by roaring the Blues to victory. He said: 'We want Goodison to be a fortress and we want people to come to Goodison fearing the worst because we are all so strong. 'The next few weeks are vital. We want to make sure we secure European football again and if we can take maximum points then we will be in a strong position to really have something to play for as the season draws to a close. 'There are no easy three points in the Premier League. It is important we approach the Bolton game in the right way and the fans get behind us. 'We have got used to European football at Everton now and it is where Everton belongs. Goodison deserves big European nights so it is important we work hard now to give us the opportunity to get those nights.'
