Owen Coyle says that Bolton have been 'brought together' by the exit of defender Gary Cahill.

Owen Coyle has said that Bolton Wanderers have been 'brought together' by the exit of defender Gary Cahill.

Cahill moved to Chelsea last week for £7m and since then Premier League strugglers Bolton have enjoyed wins over Macclesfield and Liverpool.

"When you lose a player of his quality it could have an adverse effect," Coyle said. "But when things like that happen it can also bring a group together.

"I told the lads they had to understand that players come and go and when it happens they have to batten down the hatches and stay together as a group.

"The level of performance [against Liverpool] showed that."

Bolton are currently 17th in the league with 19 points from 22 games.
