Coyle: I'm not feeling the heat

Bolton manager Owen Coyle insists he feels under no additional pressure following a slow start to the season for Wanderers.

The Trotters have taken seven points from their opening six games in the Championship, losing all three away from the Reebok Stadium and so far failing to live up to their billing as favourites for an instant return to the top flight.

While Coyle is eager to prevent a sizeable gap developing between his own side and the division's pacesetters, he feels under no further scrutiny than usual ahead of Saturday's trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

"Every game you attend to you want to be getting your points and you want to be getting them sooner rather than later - you don't want to be playing catch-up with anybody," he said.

"In the three (away) games where it's gone against us we've not taken points. So the sooner we do that, the better.

"If it's a pressure then it's not any more than the pressure we put ourselves under every day to try and strive to go forward. We'll go to Sheffield Wednesday, be positive and the team will reflect that and look to try and win the game."
