Fabrice Muamba return would not surprise Owen Coyle

Bolton manager Owen Coyle says he would not be surprised were Fabrice Muamba to play football again, but admits the midfielder will need time.

Coyle says Muamba needs to be with his family after being discharged from hospital on Monday, having collapsed during an FA Cup tie with Spurs on 17 March.

Coyle adds that he would prefer to have "points in the bag" rather than two games in hand but says the team is ready for the challenge of securing their Premier League status.
