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 just as forcibly as he feared they might on his return to Turf Moor last night.

All the match programme pleas for Coyle's sterling deeds as Turf Moor boss to be remembered predictably fell on deaf ears as he was barracked mercilessly for defecting to Burnley's vanquished Carling Cup opponents.

If the noise from the sidelines was deafening, viewing events on the pitch was hardly any more palatable for Coyle, as Bolton were run ragged at times and crashed out to a closerange 45th-minute Wade Elliott goal.

'Anyway, in the area I grew up in (the Gorbals in Glasgow), you have to fight tooth and nail for everything you get and not let a few names bother you. I know exactly what I did for this club, and nothing can take away the special times.

'For two years, I was a hero. Now I seem to be the villain, but I'll never say anything negative about Burnley. They are passionate fans, and I always thrived on that, so I can't moan when it comes back to bite you on the behind.' Burnley's current boss, Brian Laws, heaved a sigh of relief at the result as he called for a truce over the animosity towards Coyle.

'It's nice to put this game behind us because it's been hanging around for a while,' he said. …
