Speaking after Bolton's 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic, Wanderers boss Owen Coyle believed his side should have taken all three points.

Rodrigo Moreno's first goal for the club gave the Trotters the lead after 54 minutes, only for Ronnie Stam to equalise for the Latics ten minutes from time.

Coyle believed his side limited Wigan to few chances and admits he was disappointed to leave the ground with only a point.

"I think anybody who was at the game would know that (Bolton deserved to win)," Coyle told Sky Sports.

"Wigan paid us the ultimate compliment by setting up and obviously playing on the counter attack and hoping for a mistake.

"The first half I thought was quite scrappy if truth be told but in the second there was only one team.

"Going forward, attack after attack, scoring with Rodrigo and chance upon chance to really put the game to bed. Then we got caught with a sucker punch.

"Roberto (Martinez) will obviously be delighted with the goal from his point of view but they had very few chances in the game. So we're disappointed not to win the game.

"The only frustration is in the result not the performance, as in the second half we were terrific."
