Muamba watches Bolton play

10:36 am on 27 March 2012

The Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba has been able to get out of his hospital bed, eat and watch his team-mates play on TV.

A joint hospital and club statement says he continues to make encouraging progress in his recovery.

Manager Owen Coyle says Muamba watched highlights of their 2-1 win over Blackburn.

Tomorrow Bolton play their rearranged FA Cup quarter-final tie as a chance to thank the Tottenham Hotspur fans for their support.

The game sees Bolton return to White Hart Lane for the first time since the cardiac arrest shortly before half time led to the match being abandoned.
