Coyle calls for consistency

BY foxsports • November 7, 2011

The struggling Wanderers at last found their touch after a dismal start to the season as they thrashed Stoke 5-0 in the Premier League at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday. The scoreline mirrored the 5-0 hammering Bolton received at the hands of the Potters in last season's FA Cup semi-finals, when arguably their decline began. It was only Bolton's third win of the season and their first at home and, although they are still a lowly 18th, has the potential to kickstart their campaign. Coyle said: "The intensity was there and regardless of how the result went I wanted to make sure we had a performance of the way I like. "They did that and we have got to make sure we do that consistently. "The quality of goals was there for everyone to see. "It was a valuable three points. It only moves us up one place but it catapults us up among seven or eight teams. It puts us on an upwards spiral. "We had to win. Stoke are a fantastic side and Tony (Pulis) is a top manager. "They will finish top 10, absolutely. They have real strength in depth. "But I think we were clinical with everything that came our way. "That has happened to us before, so it is nice to come out on the right side of it."
