Bolton Boss Looks Forward To Swansea Cup Tie

Bolton Boss Looks Forward To Swansea Cup Tie

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle says he's looking forward to Saturday's FA Cup 4th round tie against Swansea City at the Reebok Stadium.

Coyle was keen to point out that his side have picked up more points than the Swans in recent games and is hopeful to progress further in the competition.

Coyle told their Official Site:

'As a player, coach, manager, I have loved the FA Cup and I hope my players share that same enthusiasm.

'Saturday gives us an opportunity to reach the last-16, and I'm sure that Brendan (Rodgers) will feel the same at Swansea.

'They have been outstanding, beating Arsenal the other week - it was probably similar to us and the result against Liverpool - and they have talented players and individual match-winners.

'For me, it's a good game to look forward to. We showed last week, and it was long overdue, what we can do at the Reebok.

'We have to continue with that because after Swansea we face another tough game against Arsenal. We've got to repeat the form.

'I've said before that we have been on a decent run, but being in the lower reaches of the league then people don't often recognise that.

'As good as Swansea have been, we've actually taken more points from the last six Barclays Premier League games than Swansea. We've recorded ten compared to their eight.

'So it will be a terrific game between two good sides.'
