Coyle confident players can deliver against Blackburn

Bolton boss Owen Coyle says he has faith in his players to turn round a run of poor performances, starting with Tuesday night's Premier League clash against local rivals Blackburn.

Defeat for either side at Ewood Park would leave the loser bottom of the table at Christmas but Coyle is hopeful his players have the mental strength to rescue their season.

Bolton have lost their last five league games, while struggling Blackburn manager Steve Kean admits he has held talks with the club's owners but insists his job is not under threat.
