Bolton boss unsure how his players will react

5:56 am on 28 March 2012

The Bolton football boss Owen Coyle admits he doesn't know how his players will react to today's return to White Hart Lane.

Coyle's side face Tottenham in a re-arranged FA Cup fixture that was abandoned after Fabrice Muamba had a cardiac arrest 10 days ago.

Coyle says it will be emotional but he can't say how it is going to be until they actually get to the ground.

Muamba continues to improve in hospital with the 23-year-old said to be out of bed and eating.

There will be a minute's applause before today's game and players from both sides will sign their shirts afterwards and auction them online, with the proceeds going to the London Chest Hospital, where Muamba is being treated, and three charities.
