Lee close to Trotters return
Bolton's bid to beat the drop has been boosted by the news that Lee Chung-yong is on track to return to first-team training next week.
The Korean winger has not featured at all this term after suffering a double fracture of his leg in a pre-season friendly against Newport County but could be back in contention for the final games.
Lee was one of Bolton's best players last season, and his loss was compounded when fellow midfielder Stuart Holden was forced to undergo a second knee operation in September.
Without their key pair, Bolton have found themselves in the bottom three for most of the season and they go into Saturday's clash with Swansea at the Reebok Stadium two points from safety, although with two games in hand on most of their rivals.
Coyle said of Lee: "I'm hoping tomorrow and Saturday he'll be able to train with the reserves. If he comes through that without any reaction then hopefully he can join my group next week and start to step up his training from there.
"We'd love to have him involved but the most important thing is, in terms of the long term, we don't do anything detrimental. He's worked hard to get himself to the level he is now and he's going to be a very special player."
