Bolton boss Owen Coyle believes their fate is in their own hands as they prepare for a crucial run of fixtures.

The Trotters have a vital month coming up with home games against fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn, plus a trip to Molineux to meet Wolves.

Bolton find themselves second from bottom of the table, but Coyle is confident they have enough quality in their squad to get themseleves out of trouble by winning the games against their relegation rivals.

"Our destiny, our fate, or whatever you want to call it that's in our own hands and to do that we have more than enough good players to go and address that," Coyle told Sky Sports News.

"We have had a tough set of fixtures, but equally we know there are so many winnable games to come."

City challenge

Bolton face league leaders Manchester City this weekend and Coyle hopes his side can hold their own against Roberto Mancini's troops

"We go to Manchester City and again everybody will be writing us off as they do," he added.

"Can you compete with a club like that over 38 games? No, but on any given day, absolutely.

"To do that we need every one of our players, not six or seven, but 11 to be focused, doing their job to the maximum and if you do that you can achieve results."
