Coyle still confident of survival
Defiant Bolton boss Owen Coyle is still convinced his side can stay in the Premier League despite blowing a two-goal lead against WBA.
James Morrison's last-minute equaliser earned the Baggies a 2-2 draw, after Martin Petrov and an own goal by Billy Jones had put Wanderers into the box-seat.
Coyle's disappointment was then compounded by a late winner for relegation rivals QPR over Stoke, meaning the Trotters have to win their last game at Stoke next Sunday, and hope at least one other club slips up.
But with Rangers facing the thankless task of a trip to champions-elect Manchester City, Coyle sees hope and said: "We have to pick ourselves up and win that game and I truly believe that will be enough to keep us in the Barclays Premier League."
Coyle did not hide his disappointment at the way his side - seemingly coasting to victory after 70 minutes through goals from Martin Petrov and an own-goal from Billy Jones, allowed the Baggies to pull level through Chris Brunt then Morrison's late strike.
Coyle added: "There is no getting away from how disappointing it is to have drawn a game that to all intents and purposes we were well placed to win. We created some unbelievable chances and at 2-0 up we should have closed the game out and had the three points we craved. My disappointment is that we allowed that to slip away, and now we have to stand up and be counted."
