Elliott Wades in with Boo Boys to Ruin Coyle Return


Byline: JOHN EDWARDS

Burnley 1 Bolton 0

OWEN COYLE endured a torrid time on and off the pitch as Burnley fans vented their fury at him as forcibly as he feared on his return to Turf Moor.

Match programme pleas for Coyle's sterling deeds as Burnley boss to be remembered fell on deaf ears as he was barracked mercilessly for defecting to neighbours Bolton last January.

If the noise was deafening, the tie hardly made for pleasant viewing, as Bolton were run ragged in the first half and went behind to a close-range finish from Wade Elliott.

Referee Mark Clattenburg bizarrely pointed to the spot, despite keeper Adam Bogdan being the Bolton player trying to claw the ball back from behind the line. Burnley's protests turned to wild celebrations, though, as Clattenburg consulted a linesman and awarded the goal.

A handful of fans were on hand to jeer Coyle when he climbed off the team bus, but the reception was altogether more hostile when he walked onto the pitch before kick-off.

Boos rang out every step of the way from tunnel to technical area. Eight stewards formed a protective ring round him, but the Bolton boss remained undaunted as he stood defiantly in front of the dugout.

A warm embrace from opposite number Brian Laws provided a brief respite, but the heat was soon turned up again, as Burnley tore into their Lancashire rivals from the off.

Chris Eagles led the assault with two near-misses in the opening two minutes. He fastened on to a Chris Iwelumo knockdown after barely a minute and hammered an angled drive that keeper Adam Bogdan parried round the near post.

The livewire winger then showed why Sir Alex Ferguson once had high hopes for him at Manchester United, as he cut in from the right and unleashed a rising left foot drive that crashed against the bar, with Bogdan beaten. Bolton were being forced on to the back foot, to the delight of a boisterous home fans, who booed and chanted 'Judas' every time Coyle ventured to the touchline to rally his players.

Bolton went close with their first attack of note in the 17th minute. Ivan Klasnic's flick fell for Tamir Cohen to strike a drive that looked destined for the bottom corner, until Lee Grant saved brilliantly.

Centre back Andre Bikey obliged home fans imploring him to shoot, with a piledriver that flew over in the 20th minute, but Bolton gradually forced their way back.
