Coyle backs dodgy Bolton keeper


OWEN COYLE IS BACKING DODGY KEEPER ADAM BOGDAN TO RECOVER FROM HIS CHELSEA NIGHTMARE.

Bogdan was at fault for the goals by Daniel Sturridge and Frank Lampard in the Blues 5-1 romp at the Reebok.

The 24-year-old Hungarian's poor performance has piled the pressure on Coyle, who's Bolton side currently sit at the bottom of the Premier League.

But the Scot is convinced Bogdan can bounce back from his traumatic experience.

He said: ``It’s now that he has to show his character and his mental strength.

``He’ll be away now on international duty with Hungary, so he’ll have time away from the club.

``But the thing about goalkeepers is that when you make a mistake, it’s a goal.

``There is no hiding place and that’s why when you play in that position you need a real strength of character.

``He will come through the other side of it, and when he does, he will be all the better for it.

``Sunday was a horrible day for him and the football club, but sometimes that can be the making of a man, and hopefully it will be in his case.''

Bogdan was filing in for the injured Jussi Jaaskelainen but is expected to stand down when Bolton face Wigan a week on Saturday.
