Coyle tips Ward to shine

Ward impressed during a brief loan spell with Huddersfield Town

last season, when he netted five goals in as many games. The

Trotters have lost Johan Elmander at the end of his contract, while

Daniel Sturridge has returned to Chelsea following a loan spell at

The Reebok. Coyle now has just Kevin Davies, Ivan Klasnic and

Robbie Blake, who struggled for action last season, as options in

the Bolton attack. “I’ve been delighted with his level of

performances,” the Totters boss said of Ward. “He is a terrific

young player who is only going to get better.”
