Coyle wants Cahill to get more goals

Bolton manager Owen Coyle has challenged Gary Cahill to improve his scoring ratio and keep the club in sight of Europe.

Cahill, who played for England midweek, capped a remarkable few days with his first goal of the season in the 2-0 victory against Everton at the Reebok Stadium.

Coyle said: "It has been a terrific week for Gary. I have had numerous chats with him and Gary should be weighing in with five to 10 goals a season. He did that last season."

Daniel Sturridge made it three goals in three games after arriving on loan from Chelsea.

Sturridge has made a flying start and Coyle said: "I am not surprised. These young players are just craving a platform."

Everton manager David Moyes was devastated by the manner of the defeat, saying: "Today's performance was as bad as I can remember since I have been in charge. Maybe I need to toughen up on them again."
