Owen Coyle: Bolton boss hoping to claim all three points from Molineux
Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle is hoping his side can repeat their win over Wolves at Molineux last season this weekend.
In November 2010, Stuart Holden bagged the winner as Bolton claimed a crucial 3-2 away success over Mick McCarthy's troops.
Bolton come into the match on the back of a 2-1 victory over Blackburn, a game in which the club paid tribute to midfielder Fabrice Muamba, who is recovering after suffering cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane on March 17.
Six points from their last two league outings have moved Coyle's men out of the drop zone and the former Burnley boss knows the importance of winning a six-pointer against their relegation rivals.
"As difficult as it is, as Wolves away is always a tough game, we went there last year and won and we have to look to do the same again."
