Owen Coyle upset by undeserved defeat


Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle felt that his side were hard done by after they were beaten 1-0 at home by improving Liverpool.

The Trotters created several chances to take something from the game, before Maxi Rodriguez pounced for the winner four minutes from time at the Reebok Stadium.

Coyle told his club's official website:"I don't think we deserved to lose the game. The margins in the Premier League are very fine.

"Having said that, we had opportunities ourselves before the goal. I felt that the effort and the application from the players was first-class.

"I thought we dominated the game for large periods and there were a couple of decisions I thought we may have got.

"I think anyone who was here will agree the scoreline doesn't reflect the 90 minutes. We put an awful lot into the game and we had gone into it believing that we could get a result.

"We are disappointed because we don't like losing any game and it is our first loss at the Reebok. It's something that we are not accustomed to experiencing this season."
