Owen Coyle says that Bolton can beat Manchester City ahead of their meeting at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has said that his side can beat Manchester City, despite their greater spending power.

City have added former Gunners fullback Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid to their recent list of big-name signings this summer, but Coyle has insisted that his side still stand a good chance against them at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday.

"It might look a mis-match, but I can assure you it won't be," the Trotters boss told BBC Sport. "I don't know what they have spent. What is it, £300m? In my 18 months in charge I've spent £3m in transfers.

"We are at the Reebok and we have to make sure we give a big performance. Is this a game we can win, absolutely?

"If we give our maximum then I believe we can go and win."

Coyle has brought in four players this summer, including Swansea's Darren Pratley and Nigel Reo-Coker on free transfers.
