Coyle Praises His Bolton Side After St Andrews Win

Coyle Praises His Bolton Side After St Andrews Win

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle hailed his side and the determination they showed in beating Birmingham to book a semi final date at Wembley in the FA Cup.

The Trotters had the lead twice in the game only to see the scores levelled on both occasions by a Birmingham side who did not want to give up.

But substitute Chong Yong-Lee struck a last-gasp winner to book a semi-final date at Wembley next month.

Coyle said: "Both teams went all out to book their place in the semi-final and we showed great character and determination to claim the victory.

"We have to give great credit to Birmingham because they kept coming back.

"Having got 2-1 in front, we should have scored a third with the chances that we created, but then you get Kevin Phillips doing what he does best by magnificently converting what seemed like a half-chance.

"However, we picked ourselves up to get the winning goal. It was a great knock-down by the skipper and a super finish by Chung-Yong."
