Owen Coyle on Bolton's loss at Tottenham

Bolton boss Owen Coyle admits Tottenham "deserved to win" after beating his side 3-1 in the FA Cup quarter-final, saying the match was a "terrific advert for football".

Coyle adds that the match was an "opportunity to thank the fans" after the original fixture was abandoned when Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch.

The 45-year-old says the events were fresh in the player's minds, but Muamba's recovery has inspired the rest of the world.
