Owen Coyle Under Pressure At Bolton

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 06 December 2011, 10:28

Bookmakers' have installed Bolton boss Owen Coyle as one of the favourites in the Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked betting market following his side's torrid run. Saturday's miserable 3-0 defeat by Tottenham leaves Bolton 19th in the league, with the club losing 11 of their 14 matches this season, including the last three. Coyle's odds have been cut to just 5/2 and if Bolton's woeful form continues then expect a Next Bolton Manager market to open up shortly.

Including the tail end of the 2010/11 season, Bolton have now suffered 16 defeats in 19 matches. Their open and attacking play is simply leaving them vulnerable at the back, with their leaky defence conceding goals for fun. Bolton have let in 34 goals this season, which is the worst of any top flight team. Their shocking disciplinary record certainly hasn't helped matters. Gary Cahill's red card at the weekend was the club's fifth sending off of the season, with every one of those matches ending in defeat.

Last week we witnessed the first top flight sacking of the season when Sunderland axed Steve Bruce. As we enter into the Christmas period there are a number of other managers under-fire, including Steve Kean and Andre Villas-Boas. However, it is Coyle who should be most worried. The Scot has insisted that he will not quit the Reebok Stadium and is adamant that he can keep Bolton in the Premier League. At the moment their prospects don't look too great as they are priced at just 6/4 with Stan James to get relegated.

Bolton must now focus their attention on their upcoming matches at home to Aston Villa and away to Fulham and Blackburn Rovers as they attempt to climb out of the bottom three. Stan James have Bolton as the 6/4 favourites to win Saturday's match against Villa, while Alex McLeish's men are priced at 15/8 to come away with the three points. Meanwhile, a draw is available at 23/10.

Odds supplied by Stan James.
