Coyle Wary Of Top Trio

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Owen Coyle is warning his Bolton troops to be on their guard against three key Everton players.

Coyle believes a trio of the Blues' established players are in the Premier League's very top bracket.

The Bolton chief said: "Everton have got top players, with the likes of Fellaini, Saha and Cahill.

"These are top players in any team in the league. We have to be ready for them and we will be. It's always a great game against Everton because there are two committed teams."

Coyle and Everton counterpart David Moyes know each other well and share a mutual admiration for their respective skills and achievements.

But both men are currently focused on guiding their teams up the Premier League table after indifferent starts to the campaign.

"There's nothing he doesn't know about football and he is somebody I have got a lot of time for," said Coyle of Moyes.

"On Saturday we will both be going out for the points for our own agendas. We have to make sure that we get them for ours and record back-to-back home wins.

"That's been a frustration for us, that we haven't strung two wins together. We had a chance last week and now we have to start afresh."
