Bolton manager Owen Coyle praises Darren Pratley after the former Swansea midfielder scored against his old club to send Bolton through to the FA Cup fifth round.

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has hailed midfielder Darren Pratley after he scored to help Bolton knock his former club Swansea out of the FA Cup.

Pratley joined the Trotters from the Welsh side in the summer but has struggled to make an impact at the Reebok Stadium thus far.

Coyle, however, restored him to the starting lineup for Saturday's match and was delighted by his performance.

"I think Darren has probably been a bit frustrated at times this year. He is known as an attacking midfielder and he has had chances in various games, hitting the woodwork and seeing goalkeepers make good saves," said the Bolton boss.

"It was great to see him hit the back of the net today and he could have had a hat-trick.

"We made three changes and Darren was one of them, and it was great to see the energy that he brought to the team.

Bolton currently sit 17th in the Premier League, one point above the relegation zone.
