Bolton set for striker wrangle

Owen Coyle says it is out of his hands as to whether Bolton can keep Daniel Sturridge but believes they can cope without him.

The on-loan Chelsea striker has been on fire since joining the Trotters in January, taking his tally to six goals in eight games with his brace against West Ham on Saturday.

Having impressed, since making the move to the north-west, the 21-year-old looks as though he could lay claim to a spot in the Blues first team next season.

Having done so well for Bolton Coyle is eager to keep Sturridge but fears Chelsea won't want to let him go given his performances at the Reebok Stadium, much like Arsenal did with Jack Wilshere last season.

"Can we keep Daniel? That won't be my decision - the same as Jack. That will be when goes back to Chelsea," said the Bolton boss.

"I was quite close to getting Jack back. Now he has really blossomed. Daniel can do the same. They are both set for glittering careers."

Coyle went on to say that he felt Bolton would be fine without the cup-tied Sturridge at Wembley this weekend as the Trotters get set for their semi-final clash with Stoke.
